What once was, will be again

I’ve loved that line from “Welcome back Kotter’s” Horshak for years. It is truly what happens in the IT world I live in. Things that were passe two years ago are once again sought out and dignified as solutions. Things that are solutions today will be thrown away. On-Premise becomes cloud based and so on.

The world of IT is a changing world. But why has IT become so disconnected from the business? Why do we have solutions that seek sponsors, rather than sponsors in the business seeking solutions?

We are the little lost kittens who have lost their IT mittens.

And now we shall have no blackberry pie.


Is the reality of IT that we are no longer a part of the business? Or is it that we in IT have lost our way and have forgotten out to get out of the garden?
