IT is about to meet the Amazon Effect

Steve Duplessie | June 6, 2013
IT upheaval is inevitable— like it or not.

You will stop buying the way you always have. You will stop consuming the way you always have. You will stop using the way you always have. You will have to alter your perception in the new world order of IT.

Maybe you aren't convinced. Maybe the fact that Amazon reported $790 million in "other" revenue last quarter (IT services) doesn't impress you. Maybe the " cloud" stuff like Salesforce seems evolutionary to you, not revolutionary. But the fact that every one of your employees now keeps corporate data on an external OFS (online file sharing) service like Box or Dropbox should tell you something: You have lost control, and you didn't even know it was happening.

Accept. Adapt. Admire.
