ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the prediction of Nicholas Carr that the IT department is doomed to fail. The prediction was stated in his new book, "The Big Switch: Rewiring the World from Edison to Google." In his book, Carr states that the IT department has little chance of surviving because in the long run the business units can already handle the processing of information even without the help of technical people. Furthermore, it was noted that because of Carr's articles, he became the enemy of the IT industry.
