There’s a quiet revolution going on in IT, highlighted in the recent book from IT Governance Publishing, The Quantum Age of IT by Charles Araujo. Charles believes that everything in IT is about to change. According to recent reviews the book has been getting, people are seeing his point.
“Charles has really nailed it for any executive struggling with IT strategy. How IT got here and where it’s going… An easy read, yet will get the creative juices flowing for any IT professional executive.” Randy Steinberg, Principal – Migration Technologies
The book starts with a fascinating history of the way that the IT industry has changed from the days of large, inflexible providers, through the innovative approaches from Google and Apple, and the rise of cloud services, to the place where we are now. The book then sets out Charles Araujo’s vision of the way that IT is going, and it makes fascinating, and at times uncomfortable reading for IT professionals:
“A bracing indictment of IT dysfunction, and a well-informed discussion of promising avenues for IT improvement. I agree completely with Charles that a systems approach is essential. Recommended”

Fortunately for the IT profession, Mr Araujo also gives guidance and suggests how IT professionals can make the most of this time of great change, which, as we know, is often a time of great opportunity.
“The role of IT has changed in a revolutionary way. Success in this new world order will require a new way of thinking and a new set of competencies. Charles Araujo helps his readers understand the need for change, as well as the ways that they must change in order to leverage this exciting opportunity”
Larry Bonfante, CIO USTA, Founder CIO Bench Coach
But what does the author mean by the Quantum Age of IT? In essence it is about change: constant and continuous change in products, services and customer requirements and that means IT professionals must also learn to adapt, acquire new skills and build systems that are flexible and forward looking.
