Expecting a Recession, Gartner Urges 'Creative Destruction'

The analyst firm encourages enterprise IT departments to re-imagine themselves in a world where collaboration and mobile devices take precedence.

Computerworld: At its annual Symposium/ITxpo, Gartner sounded dire warnings for enterprise IT departments. "The second recession is about to hit," said Gartner's Peter Sondergaard. As a result, the firm says that IT budgets will feel the impact.

At the same time, the firm says that IT is changing dramatically as collaboration and mobile devices -- particularly tablets -- become more important. Analyst Tina Nunno encouraged companies to engage in "creative destruction," and to "destroy perfectionism and embrace calculated risk."
