The end of the IT department?

Anthony Doesburg: Company IT departments soon to be so last century? – 28 Jan 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand Business and Personal Finance News

Great article about the impending end of the IT department through increased use of Web 2.0 technology.

Confused about what Web 2.0 technology is, well if you use Youtube, Google Docs, Facebook or New Zealand’s own Xero then you are using Web 2.0.

I use Xero and I also use Google Docs. I haven’t had cause to use Office for….well..I can’t even remeber when I last used a Microsoft product.

There are some terms used like “utility computing” and “software as a service” which are essentially the old ASP model but redefined and better delivered.

Don’t believe me? We’ll see shall we. No doubt someone will remind me in the unlikely event this doesn’t pan out.
