Here is a new wave I see emerging in IT. We had Slow Food decades ago. Now we are seeing Slow Business, and I hope we will see Slow IT. Tweet this. I'm appealing for it here now.
The key point I want to make is that there are absolute limits on how fast IT can go. Just because the technology is changing that fast doesn't mean we have to, or can. The governors or executive or customers or users can rant all they want about how IT "must" deliver faster, but we are approaching rates that simply are not humanly possible. The limits are with humans and systems: there appear to be no technical asymptotes.
The onus is on the organisation and the customer to understand (or at least listen to) the limits of IT, and to manage that risk responsibly. It's not happening much.
