This reminds me of the discussions around server virtualization a few years back. You'd go to an event and every CIO was talking about how server virtualization was too risky. Then, a year later, when they returned to the event, they were promoting success stories that were happening under the radar (to them). Challenge with consumerization is that the power is shifting from the CIO to line-of-business and even mid-management. In some cases, application modernization may even be non-IT driven. Most interestingly, vendors (Apple, HP) seem to be leveraging consumerization for enterprise sales. Paul Calento
