Embrace Rogue IT

My technical background keeps me interested (though not always involved) in IT issues. Like most “consumers” of IT services, I always think about what I can do in the consumer market and compare it to the ancient technology most companies provide. I fully understand the pressures most, if not all, IT departments are under. They face daunting and often contradictory demands.

Working in the Defense industry, security is a paramount concern. That being said, I found this article in CIO magazine enlightening. It talks about how people will use new technology no matter what IT tries to do. And that can cause some serious organizational problems. But IT can’t stick there head in the sand – like they do at my company. You are missing the boat.
