I managed to read this before I go on vacation. It was a time well spent. It has a nice flow and provides a good description of “how we got here” from the very beginning. And with it, it provides the common themes that may not predict the future, but do sketch the lines of how the role of CIO will evolve.”

I read with great interest your thoughts on the Ride the Flat world and must confess that it was absolutely amazing to read some great insights, extraordinarily well analyzed reasoning and the establishment of a substantive business case on the way the world has changed for ever. There is no doubt in your espousal of the fact that transformation in a technology driven world that integrates other functional business facets of the organization is the core to the way people (consumers) will interact and benefit from the changes. The aspect of all of this converging to better scale and substantive value creation is absolutely right. there are some fundamental questions you have asked and needs extraordinary research to find some answers.

“Mobility, social media, cloud computing, big data, and more…….. everybody knows that these are all “happening” technology areas. But any technology becomes interesting and relevant to a business only when SOMEONE figures out how that business can actually use it as a gamechanger,to become more profitable, or to even become a leader in its field. Any IT practitioner who understands technology but wants to have a much better chance of being that SOMEONE simply must read this book!”
Getting technology right and getting the right technology will be at the forefront of all enterprises.This book is a must read for all those who need to be accountable for technology.
