  • Navigating your Future within an SOA information manufacturing system

     

    Navigating your Future within an SOA information manufacturing system

     

    The Road Ahead

     

    By Terry Keene         

     

    As the IT industry reaches maturity, IT departments should think of themselves not as data centres but as manufacturing centres for information. IT is following in the footsteps of the telephone and electricity industry before it, and becoming a commodity.

     

    The mission, whether IT knows it or not, is to provide information to its customer when they need it, where they need it,  in a form that they can use it, at a price that they are willing to pay. In a nutshell its role, is becoming information manufacturing. It is the business of information manufacturing systems. Data centers are information factories and the IT staff are information builders.

     

    This is a profound shift in thinking that will have significant implications for the future of IT department, IT professionals and the business.
