In the course of a recent business technology strategy project, I prepared a presentation on the current forces of change in the IT industry and their impact on enterprise IT. I designed the presentation around the following three questions: “Is the IT industry becoming smart?”, “Does the consumerization of IT drive innovation?”, and “Is your organization prepared for the change?”. Based on Forrester’s research, I’ve provided a few directional statements that answer each question along with some links to the Forrester research reports that back them up. Enjoy the reading!
