However, Forehand--insisting that "IT still matters"--said C-level executives' need for real-time information that will help them better manage their business will drive the next wave of spending on consulting and business-transformation services. "I've yet to find an executive who says they have all the information at the right time to run their business; that's the opportunity," Forehand said.

He added that areas such as radio-frequency identification, business analytics, and application software will be the focus of significant IT innovation over the next several years. "Application software is still quite clunky compared to the [Microsoft] Xbox or [Sony] Playstation. Will there be a business version of Xbox?"

yea, but you have to search for things. This will be geared for your buisness and have real time data already on the machine with no searching involved.
