Tom's Research Magic Square

Here is my latest rating of the research groups:



This one goes out to all my friends in the software industry, I hope I don't get sued by Gartner, but it seems like fair use. If I missed someone or you want to change your position on the magic square, you can send the comments on a 12 ounce bar of palladium.
Accenture has a very interesting white paper on the effect of IT investment on corporate performance. It is published here. The paper covers a signature concept it calls the Five “I"s: industrialization, innovation, information, integration and infrastructure. One of the conclusions is that spending is not always investment. Oh, no another ZEN koan,! But seriously, there is some interesting information in the report. For instance, when asked about the adoption of (Accenture considers) 19 important technologies, CIO's routinely select technology that assist compliance. Annoyingly, Accenture did not list the technologies.

The paper warns companies against being too conservative. This was the canard about spending and investing. My question is: are technologies like BPM 2.0, business rules, web 2.0 and office 2.0 going to bypass these huge lumbering corporations, struggling to comply with SOX and oversized and outdated business models. I would like to bet on the Fortune 5,000,000.
