Pequeno trecho de uma provocação "profunda" do David Berlind (ZDNet):

For decades, we’ve been taught by the vendor community that we should compartmentalize our business thinking into categories that map well to their categories of solutions. While I’d rather not single out Microsoft, it’s really the classic example. If you need to create and print different kinds of documents (what business doesn’t?), you get something like Microsoft Office. If you want to collaborate with others over those documents (what business doesn’t?), you buy or subscribe to a Sharepoint server. If you need a Web presence (what business doesn’t?), you set up a Web server (or find someone else who will host it for you). Microsoft would prefer this be its Internet Information Services server.

If you’re someone who runs a business, before you know it, you’re managing all sorts of products running on all sorts of operating systems (desktop and server). With weekly security updates, annual service packs, less frequent upgrades, all sorts of crazy showstoppers that turn into mini-sink holes of time and money, vendors will tell you it’s not nearly the management and expense nightmare that it really is, especially if you buy into their management solutions. Yes, so complex are the “on-premises” solutions that you have to buy other management products just to keep the infrastructure from having a heart attack.

Are we incapable of looking in from the outside and asking if there’s a better way?

Junte isso com aquele papo de que 44% das empresas que licenciam grandes volumes de software não sabem direito o que estão comprando...

CIO's 2.0, quando surgirem, farão um belo estrago.
