Right -- but that is a "run/maintain" the business vs "lead the business/lead growth" type of responsibility. Critical, but not a path to the C-suite.

Re: IT Evolution
That's true, but despite the "commoditization of IT" there will always be a need for the people that can do the nuts and bolts of technology implementation, as opposed to to the marketer or whomever that may also become involved.

Re: IT Evolution
Yes, this alludes to the trend of technology being integrated more than ever into basically every business process and function (marketing, risk management, etc.). It's a little bit "be careful what you wish for" from an IT standpoint, because while it achieves the long-standing goal of integrating and aligning technology with the business it also potentially can marginalize long-standing IT roles and responsibilities as consumerization makes everyone an IT expert.

IT Evolution
IT is definitely evolving, and as you note, blending somewhat with other disciplines such as marketing.
