    Hi Ray

    WRT your comment ‘This natural evolution in the DEEPR framework means IT must scale while line of business focuses on innovation’. Agree totally but I don’t see it happening in day-to-day business.

    Organizations are running lean in today’s economic climate and there is not a lot of free time (or resources) for innovation. In our experience, most innovation is the other way round, being driven by IT and external consultants.

    I have no doubt that social media will consolidate over time as they lose their ‘newness’, adopt each others features and benefits and merge into a similar offering. But regretfully, its not fast enough.

    All the best, JK
