Over the past 6 months I have been dwelling more and more on the obvious speed of change and development in IT Infrastructure. What do I mean? Well each year there is the new hotness, the next thing/innovation you are told you need or should have.
In most cases the innovations and new tech are ground breaking awesomeness and most certainly offer new opportunities for the infrastructure masses.
I am all for progress, if you are not moving forward and regularly looking for sensible ways to improve what you do and the infrastructure you use then I really do think you are in the wrong industry.
However what I am beginning to take exception to is the insistence each time that if you are not doing/adopting the next new thing in a short space of time you informed you will be irrelevant before you know it. (insert suitable words that exclaim you are not one of the cool kids)
