Much of the lifeblood of organizations today revolves around their digital processes and information, which is why technology leadership is more important than ever. With several technology trends coalescing into a fundamental consumerization that changes not only the technology mix but also user expectations as to their role in technology, the landscape in which technology leadership has changed. It's no longer the province of senior IT leaders, though the cut-above thinkers among them remain in the best position to lead.
