We've been talking about the consumerization of IT for years, but it's now reaching an inflection point. Is it time for IT to accept it and adapt?
The Big Question is a joint production from ZDNet and TechRepublic that I co-host with ZDNet Editor in Chief Larry Dignan. Larry is traveling on the west coast this week so he couldn't make it, but he'll be back next week. My colleague Bill Detwiler, TechRepublic's Head Technology Editor, pinch-hit for him this week.
