Labels that don't achieve much

In all the organizations I have been in the stereo types were always part of the territory. The sad part is that the stereotypes created so much unnecessary antagonism that everyone suffered. I am not a fan of stereotypes and prefer to judge a member individually not by a herd like label it has always made it easier to get things done and actually make friend in other functional areas. Stereotypes are really a waste of everyone's time.

I think the most important thing is to have the correct instead of most powerful software in place. As long as the software does its job, it's a good one to use. The ideal situation would be that the software fits the business needs properly.

The Driving Force
IT professionals are driven by the desire to increase the overall productivity of the business. If information is being generated and transferred to the key players then, the IT department is very happy. They are similar to banks in an economy that are happy when commerce is taking place among the right players.

However, if too many rouge applications, enters the business, transferring information to the wrong players, and the overall productivity of the business is at threat, then it is time to lock down the gates. This creates a negative image but, someone has to do it. It is similar to banks locking down credit, because credit is being spent by the consumer mostly on consumption goods and not on productive goods.
