Announcing the death of traditional ERP, shared services, and the datacenter?

IMG_1614-Edit_SML.jpgSeveral years ago, I decided to earn a second Master’s degree in strategic planning from the University of Southern California. One of the things we studied was futures research. In futures research, sometimes you try to determine where things are going by scouring the points that fall off the curve. For me, I wanted to know what IT would like five years into the future. So I asked around and found a leading-edge organization to talk to. And I went to their architects. You know these folks; they are responsible for the current state and future state of IT. I started my questioning by asking, “What do you believe you will be buying in the future?” Instead of responding “servers, storage and networking equipment,” they said that they wanted to buy “IT.”
