The article discusses the growth of Information Technology (IT) and its implications to business. According to the author, IT is growing as the dot-com bubble collapsed. He added that IT spending in North America surged to five percent in 2007 and is forecasted to repeat that feat in 2008. And while companies are buying more, IT spending corporate revenue is down. He emphasized that IT increases efficiency and reliability, but its agility is the key benefit because business environments are becoming less predictable.
