Downfall of Empire Accompanied by Death of Publishing
It'll be the death of publishing. The marketeers won't know where to send those free glossy magazines and brochures which reinforce the often-dubious authority of the CIO.
Something of a cheer for common sense in recognizing the IT is a service for the benefit of whole-of-corporate goals (blimey; sounds like marketing fluff). IT is supposed to provide tools to improve the availability, utility and efficiency of access to information in the form that it is needed.
Not an excuse to build an empire within.
