I don’t normally spend TOO much time on this blog on Enterprise IT, but it is how I make my living. I have argued previously on this blog, that IT WILL become more efficient; that for 60+ years IT has matured without writing down what it did.

Then we hired some of the most experienced IT executives, architects and consultants and filled that methodology with years and years and years of lessons learned. We ended up with hundreds of documented capabilities (technical, process and organization), 50+ functional patterns, 25+ deployment patterns, hundreds of known problems and remediations, 50 qualities of IT demand and many other ways to understand the IT jungle.
