Who needs a CIO?

Chris Anderson (author of the long tail) has written a post on his view of the CIO’s and their relevance moving forward.

This follows on from a post I wrote back in May 2004, “Will we need IT support in the future?” which was prompted from reading Peter Cochrane’s post “Are IT departments doomed”.

But I still agree with the idea, people will start to want direct unhindered access to the web and to their mail.

I’ve lost the link to a recent post about IT Security departments going nuts about people forwarding their email to Gmail etc to get easier access to their mail. This is because newer web2.0 tools give greater functionality than corporate tools can provide.

This is an interesting trend when you work in an IT Services business. [via Techmeme]
