In the 1990s, a company without an IT department probably wasn't using computers. Today, small/midsize organizations are increasingly ditching the Leviathan that is the IT dept in favor of the cloud and/or managed services. Are traditional IT depts their own worst enemies? In many cases, I'd say so. Here's my take on what is decimating the formal IT dept of yesteryear.
For many organizations under 100 users or so, there has been a trend on the rise that is either decimating formal IT departments entirely, or trimming them down to bare minimum levels. Many in the IT industry wouldn't notice it, because, of course, they may likely be working for such a department themselves. It's hard to have an objective viewpoint when you're part of the status quo.
