Consumer Technology


Ignore consumer tech at your peril, CIOs warned - IT Director - Breaking Business and Technology News at silicon.com




I believe that IT needs to allow enough room to allow users the ability to try services and products out that can help them do their job.  IT is a bad place to make decisions on workflow applications.  It does much better defining the technology necessary for a smart decision. 




For example, when IT is not involved with the purchase of a major database application, I have seen 2 project purchase vaporware.  IT is used to seeing and sniffing this out.  However, IT is not good when Skype can save a company overseas telephone costs.
