On Demand or On Premise? How about Hybrid

Nick Carr gives a sneak peek of the McKinsey CIO Survey that will be released shortly. (I actually worked on developing questions for the 2005 version of this survey...ah the memories).

Seems that one of the key takeaways from the Firm's survey is similar to one I had from the Office 2.0 conference.

CIOs are rapidly abandoning the assumption that they should own and control their entire IT architecture. Instead, they're embracing the idea of a "hybrid architecture" that combines components maintained internally with components hosted or otherwise supplied by outsiders. This model, say the consultants, promises to bring greater efficiency as well as greater flexibility - for both IT and the business in general.
