In 2011/2012 I wrote and spoke about Occupy IT and IT Spring - the ‘democratization’ of the user community. The relentless consumerization and commoditization of IT gave business people more insight into what IT could do for them and more confidence to challenge bureaucratic and conservative IT Departments. More than ever – and rightly so – the business is now in the IT driving seat. But with great power comes great responsibility and, just as the Arab Spring has left countries challenged with creating a new form of government, the business is struggling with how to govern and manage information and IT. This presentation reflects on this power shift and gives insight into the responsibilities that the democratized business needs to fulfill in order to get the most value out of information and IT.
