Law, Wai
Information Systems Education Journal, v11 n4 p4-9 Aug 2013
The quiet revolution of consumer IT reached a climax recently with the widespread adoption of smart consumer devices and their rapid penetration into enterprise IT applications. This significant change of attitude, as well as the reliance on information technology has been referred to as "Consumerization of Information Technology" (CoIT). CoIT has emerged with a global driving force that has been and will continue to reshape IT practices. This paper examines some of the IT challenges associated with CoIT, and relates them to Information Systems (IS) educational challenges.
