Intelligence is now running rampant and uncontrolled in every direction of IT:

  • Build talent internally with long term focus on full time employees!
  • Build from services, don’t build everything internally!
  • Open source is super great. Supported too? All the better!
  • Deployment & development : same thing!
  • Externally managed cloud resources? One excellent option.
All of these shifts are happening now. It is very real, and it isn’t a blip, it’s a permanent shift. Weird.
We couldn’t be happier. But it is a little scary.

Darn, There Goes Our Business Model
