It is high time that organizations of all sizes recognize that they've forgotten the basics.
IT is not about buying you a computer, connecting your phone to the network, or cleaning a virus off of your workstation. It's about enabling the user to get to the data they need in order to perform their function in the organization.
Back in "the day" when I started my career we weren't called IT, we were called Data Processing. The harsh reality is that the application isn't the asset and never has been. What good is the application that your organization just spent north of 300K to license without the data?
Time to get real, time to get back to basics. Time for a reboot!
