Ovum: Handling of Gaming traffic a bigger challenge than video?!

In a survey of more than 4,000 U.S. information workers, we found that 37% are using do-it-yourself technologies without IT’s permission. LinkedIn, Google Docs, Smartsheet.com, Facebook, iPads, YouTube, Dropbox, Flipboard — the list is long and growing.

They’ve also embedded IT staff directly into the cubicle farms of business employees; they’ve built innovative solutions with teams comprised of business and IT employees;
IT needs to assess and mitigate technology risk. And that means IT staff need to be much closer to business employees and activities so that they can help with technology platforms.

As Apple did with music before it, Apple broke down the walls that existed in mobile. They opened up the “deck” and let application providers write straight to the device. That changed everything. A huge dependency was lifted and innovation really started to flourish.
