Recently, I published an article pushing back on criticism of Gartner’s Bimodal IT model (Bimodal IT: Why the Critics are Wrong). When the article hit Twitter, it generated a lot of froth and discussion. Many folks jumped up to tell me that I was still wrong. Other arguments also came to the fore.
Gartner’s bimodal IT model has been controversial from the start. The model is a cornerstone of Gartner’s digital business recommendations, but critics say that it’s DOA. I’m far from a Gartner fanboy, but the critics are wrong, and bimodal IT is here to stay. In fact, you’re already doing it.
