    This enterprise mentality, full of dogma and heavyweight processes is what’s really wrong with IT.
    Look at the new startups and look at how they adapt to rapid changing markets, fierce competition. You’ll see the reality that will be knocking on all these big companies doors in a few years.

    “This barrier-to-entry for new businesses and technology firms is being significantly reduced by availability of “on-demand “everything (resources, infrastructure, bandwidth, capacity and so on). Unlike yesteryears, setting up a software company today can be done quickly, easily and inexpensively. Technology trends are changing and survivors will be those that are able to step out of the “Enterprise” mentality and adapt emerging trends; to not only survive but thrive!”
