The End of Corporate Computing

The MIT Sloan Management Review has a provocative Nicolas Carr article entitled, "The End of Corporate Computing."

He asserts that IT will shift from an in-house capital asset to a centralized utility service (like electricity or HVAC). Just as a electrical wall outlet doesn't care what appliance is plugged in (within a robust set of parameters), one day the network infrastructure will not care what kind of application (within tolerance parameters) runs on it.

Think about the different role software engineering plays in this world.
