CIOs must cope with five generations of workers — digital natives, digital immigrants, digital vagabonds, digital voyeurs, and analog holdouts — must work side by side. These workers bring different values on how to work, where to work, what to work on, when to work, and even why they work.

Ray Wang: “legacy analyst firms tend to focus on rubber stamping what has happened.”

At first glance you might ask why industry analysts interested in enterprise technology should want to go the Web 2.0 developer conference. But enterprise Web convergence is real and its now. Comcast presented at NoSQL EU. Big Data started on the web but is coming to the enterprise. Cassandra now has enterprise support in the shape of Riptano. Cloudera is making Hadoop enterprise consumable. NoSQL is real. The Cloud is real. Amazon is running enterprise conferences now. Android is Java-based. Google AppEngine is real. The big convergence is upon us. What does that say to industry analysts that are used to enterprise technology coming from enterprise vendors being purchased by enterprise decision-makers? It says- you better change the model and change it fast. Research that doesn’t have time for the web and the companies building the web is backward facing.
