The New Challenge to IT

Looking forward to reading Empowered. Everywhere I go I see more and more employees acquiring their own IT and going it alone. They are simply disillusioned with the time/cost/ equation offered by traditional IT. This was pretty enlightening:

The same is true in the way employees are harnessing consumer technologies — social, mobile, video, and cloud. They’re improving how they do their jobs and solving your customer and business problems. And it’s not just a few employees; it’s a critical mass of employees. In a survey of more than 4,000 U.S. information workers, we found that 37% are using do-it-yourself technologies without IT’s permission. LinkedIn, Google Docs, Smartsheet.com, Facebook, iPads, YouTube, Dropbox, Flipboard — the list is long and growing. Many of these scenarios are do-it-yourself projects. For example, want to ask me business questions on Facebook? Piece of cake, I’ll just friend you. Personal iPhones for email, apps, and Internet access outside my clients’ door? Check. Google Sites and Docs to exchange documents with partners? Sure, I can spin up a free site or IT can spend the $50/user/year and make it secure. YouTube to post fix-it-yourself videos for tough service problems? My kid’s good with a Flip camera. She can film me doing the fix myself.
