Integrate the business of IT to combat its consumerization

"More than ever before, we [IT] face real competition. Cloud providers market directly to our business partners who are savvier than ever about technology. As a result, our business partners expect to order services at a published price over the web." quotes ZDNet Blogger Joe McKendrick from a book published by a non-profit group of Fortune 500 leaders dedicated to helping CIOs "run IT as a business." McKendrick goes on to share the recommendations made by this group for IT to stay competitive with the Saasy and cloudy types. However, it is not enough to just be competitive. IT needs to have a healthy co-existence with the "Saasy and Cloudy R Us" companies and change the IT DNA to drive co-opetition while being competitive. This is vital to addressing the challenges posed by the split-second availability of IT services to business users today.
