re: Dear IT: No One Likes Petulant Teenagers
From memory of my younger years ... petulant teenagers really liked other petulant teenagers. (Definitely still supports the metaphor here, though) ... Solid stuff, Jonathan. With all the chatter on the increasing importance of data in the business, it's only appropriate that the support of data is broken into specified and stronger executive/team functions (i.e. CDOs, "data scientists", etc.).

The key question here is, what are IT organizations going to give up? Jonathan mentions project management, risk assessment, market and product research and ROI calculation. I'd love to hear from readers whether they consider that realistic in their organizations. And if they have other recommendations.
