It's easy to complain about the Old IT. Really easy. But I started to wonder what The New IT would look like. (You know, like).
I don't know, obviously, but recent experience would suggest one version would be this:
Come into a business. Probably smaller businesses, but not exclusively. Have a look at what mix of PCs/Macs/Androids/iPhones they have, at what things they have to get done and what corporate or client systems they have to connect to and then recommend what they should download from various app stores. Don't install anything. Don't build anything. Don't sell anything, just advice.
For instance: which expenses app should we use? which timesheet app? Do they work well for the user? Are they accessible? Do they produce the right kind of reports for the corporate approver? Is the company behind the app likely to still be around in a year? Is it easy to get all the data out? Where does the data sit? Will the FBI be allowed to see it? What's the cost? How much time will it save? That kind of stuff.
Does that exist?
