ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effects of emerging e-business on IT. According to the author, the emergence of e-business requires an emphasis on process rather than management which creates a technology management gap that IT cannot bridge. Separated from business process teams and isolated from external constituents and technology sources, the IT organization will perish. Thus each member of the executive team must play key role in a successful shift from technology management environment to an ex-IT environment. Chief finance officers should implement activity-based costing tools to measure true expense levels and build a baseline from today's organizations including IT.
