The High Priests of IT — And the Heretics

Cory Doctorow writes in Harvard Business an truthful article named "The High Priests of IT — And the Heretics":

The dirty secret of corporate IT is that its primary mission is to serve yesterday's technology needs, even if that means strangling tomorrow's technology solutions. The myth of corporate IT is that it alone possesses the wisdom to decide which technologies will allow the workers on the front line to work better, faster and smarter — albeit with the occasional lackluster requirements-gathering process, if you're lucky.

My own experience from my current corporate work only confirms (sadly enough) the article. I want an Apple iPhone as my company phone! But will the IT-dept let me?
