re: 4 Ways IT's Role Changing Faster Than Expected
Nice overview, Shvetank. Your conclusions and suggestions are spot on, I believe--especially about the pace increasing, which will only seriously rob the IT shop even more time it needs to adapt easily or at all. Jonathon Feldman's recent article "IT Spending: Innovation Talk Vs. Survival Walk" illustrates how challenged IT is to adapt even if it had time.
Perhaps it is your sources, but the theme in your article seem focused on large enterprises. I think the mid-market and local government are in the same predicament and perhaps have even less assets/capability/flexibility to turn the corner.
These are interesting times, and a lot talent has and continues to leave this tough domain.
