However: how can previous generation businesses actually succeed in this new software-defined world? Last year Gartner introduced the concept of ‘bimodal IT': a new organizational model for enterprise IT in which IT organizations have two different modes of IT, each designed to address different technology and information goals.

Disruption Day - the Skills Revolution By @DinkoEror | @CloudExpo #Cloud

In my last post I discussed where to start when it comes to addressing the software-driven enterprise challenge head on as we see each industry's "disruption day" draw closer. In my view, perhaps the biggest challenge for the established players of the day - in the industrial revolution it was the cottage industries, today it is the incumbents in virtually every market - is one of change management, and the skills required in the new world order. If you were a 19th century weaver, you were an expert at weaving. You didn't know anything about negotiating bulk discounts on wool, you... (more)
