Re: SCARES-MANSHIP AND HALLOWEEN EVENTS
Tony, I like that bet. CIOs vs. journalists and thought leaders. I agree with you that thought leaders will be gone by 2020 ... replaced by another term for the same kind of mostly hot air. However, journalists ... they will survive CIOs, just like they pre-date CIOs. What's your wager?

SCARES-MANSHIP AND HALLOWEEN EVENTS
YOU KNOW...CIOS may retire but the role is still needed. It will not be replaced by CDOs, CAOs or others as they have no internet skills or things skills. The real time digital democracy is all about the API Economy hence you need to have IT Pros and managers around. Analytics will be part of the IT Pro command set in the cloud. Look at what IBM,MS ORACLE DELL and others are doing with products and training and you will see IT is more important than ever. I would say that thought leaders, article writers and private math companies are likely to dissapear soon with all the inaccurate statements they present... Roll on 2020 to see who it right...
