I have not been naughty. In fact, I have been very nice this year, so please can I have ………

As the year comes to a close and the silly season of 'use it or lose it' IT budgets comes upon us, the software and hardware vendors in particular seem to relish in the chaos and madness that such inappropriate behaviour drives.

At last, IT is starting to really mature! Let me tell you why I have this view.
