The IT Skeptic

"Everything" eh?

Who will load everything? How will you audit everything? Who will keep everything current and accurate? How will you manually relate everything to logical entities such as system, service and SLA, and to non-IT objects such as person and place? And who will pay for all that?

What a glib, simplistic, naive and dangerous statement.

"Everything" is relative to the business requirements of the organization. Some "non-IT objects such as person and place" will be tracked for completeness, to show who is responsible for an asset and where it lies. There is indeed a cost associated with all this, and that cost must be weighed against the benefit derived from gathering and maintaining the information. Again, that will vary based on the organization.

With the 2009 AO 250, we sought to find the companies upon which new industries, jobs, and economies will be built. Yes, each company in its own way brings enhanced efficiencies (the gentler form of creative destruction). But more importantly, the companies represented in this list bring hope. No industry can produce jobs, wealth, and economic momentum like the technology industry. Both directly and indirectly what propels the global economy are new ideas and approaches. The AO 250 is the epicenter of the future.
