Cars and Horses

The other day I was watching an old John Wayne movie, Big Jake. I one of the early scenes there is a cultural clash between the new-fangled automobile and the tried and true mode of transportation, the horse and mule. Of course in the movie big John is the horse rider and those in the cars are made to look the fools.

It got me to thinking, is Enterprise 2.0 the “new-fangled automobile” when compared to the tried and true “horses” of traditional IT platforms, with¬†Microsoft and IBM in the role of “Big Jake”?

Funny, I don’t see many people riding their horses to work these days.
