BPM as the Cornerstone of the Post-IT Enterprise

Enterprises actively outsource parts of their IT into Cloud (or SAAS). Is it possible for them to outsource the whole of IT, and what would be the structure of such Enterprise – Cloud symbiosis? The author of the presentation shows that the recent appearance of the BPM SAAS (Coghead®, Lombardi®, etc.) allows Enterprises to move into the post-IT era by outsourcing everything but their Business Architectures. The author considers possible practical service and personnel structures of such architectures, which would enable Enterprises to remain agile while becoming more cost effective.
