The debate around whether IT does or doesn't matter has been around for some years now. In this guest post, Jyoti Banerjee of KiteBlue asks if there is anything more to be said.
It is possible that there is nothing more to be said till we can have some startling new evidence that swings the case for or against the business performance of IT. It is also possible that the analyst community is bored out of its brains on this one. But every month I meet end-user organisations that are asking themselves this question one more time. Or even for the first time.
Next month Nick Carr and Bob McDowell will be debating exactly this issue in London, rather as they have in a number of locations. And it is my privilege (?) to chair the debate between them.
What questions should I ask? What arguments should be shot down before we waste time on them? If you know me, then you will be certain that I will be placing some of the debate in the realm of medium organisations where I don't believe there has been much research done in this regard. Any opinions out there on the impact of IT in medium organisations?

Let's get this matter resolved once and for all....
