I also agree. To expand on Chris's comment, I think that this underlines a trend that I have noticed in the IT world over the past few years -- that not only the CIO, but also the rank and file IT pro needs to become more of a business partner than a back-room techie. I gave a TED talk on this topic a few months ago explaining my reasoning, how I came to this conclusion, and challenging others in the tech field to make this leap for themselves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?....

re: Accenture: Seven Key Tech Trends For Business
Completely agree that CIOs must shift to focus on creating a digital business. But leaders shouldn't underestimate just how big the cultural the shift is: Building technology that customers use directly is a huge leap from tech that employees use in a back-office support function. IT leaders who've made this move tell us it's a different mindset -- the intensity goes way up around quality, speed, service, market responsiveness. Not everyone in an existing IT organization will make the leap.
