Today, information technology is no longer the custom, craft-based industry it used to be.... Okay, I'm not that senior to say that but I 'feel' it is so now. Also, with mass production, the costs of making available IT systems have come down so that even the smallest organization or even private users and school-kids are able to use it for whatever means they wish to use it for.

I was in a conclave (kind of) and one of the speaker said, "Business enable IT; IT does not enable Business".

I think the point was clear - it's not an asset to the company, it's an "expenditure department" where business needs to invest in to get it going and this department does not "return" much, as such. It's not first time you hear this, in my small career I've heard it more than my experience. I'm not disappointed with these and perhaps any venture-capitalist would say this...

Said all that, I'd like to here from more experienced people in this business, around here, in general - What does Information Technology mean to You and how do you see it in future?
