Generation IT 2012

The report I compiled for Modis on if and how the UK can become an instigator of future technological revolutions is now available to download here. I'm facilitating round-table events in London on March 8th; Manchester on March 20th and Edinburgh on March 27th for senior IT professionals to take the conversation forward. If you're interested in taking part, please let me know and I'll put you in touch with the organisers.

Key points are:

  • IT is moving ever more from back-office to the business driver
  • In some organisations, IT is the business
  • The CIO is increasingly a business role
  • Hybrid business/technical skills are most in demand
  • Technical specialisms still matter: but what makes the big difference is their marriage with analytical skills, a business understanding and great communication
  • IT is a great contributor to unlocking Britain's potential - the focus has to be on training, education and innovation.
I'd welcome any feedback on the report.
