A Sea of Change

January 31, 2008

One place where the changes will be particularly sweeping is the corporate IT department. As the capacity and capabilities of the computing grid expand, it will continue to displace private systems as the preferred platform for computing. Businesses will gain new flexibility in assembling computing services to perform customised information-processing jobs. They will no longer be constrained by the limits of their own data centres or the dictates of a few big IT vendors.

A digital Business piece by Nicholas Carr published by the Financial Times. It definitely will be a sea change for IT, but an opportunity for business of all sizes. Reducing CapEx costs of buying hardware. Licences, and expertise will become unnecessary. Your “footprint” on the web can be the same regardless of company size.
