This paper considers if today’s employees are increasingly abandoning enterprise IT - both hardware and software - in favour of other consumer technologies such as iPhones and Droids and tapping into Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter to get information, both for business and pleasure. As these technologies become increasingly powerful and useful the paper considers how IT leaders need to adapt so that enterprise IT is not to be pushed completely to the sidelines in the next few years.
