IT Folks are Luddites

A while ago in a previous post, I referred to an interview with Neil Raden entitled "Is Business Intelligence Stuck in the Past?" where he talked about how most business users today are more tech-savvy than the IT department. Peter O'Donnell just sent me through a link to a Gartner Voice interview with Peter Keen (one of the founding fathers of DSS/BI) where he makes essentially the same point:

Tune in here to listen to the interview. You can also subscribe to the Gartner Voice podcast in iTunes (the interview with Keen is the most recent episode).
