    Great post, agree with (and have lived) the general thrust. However, one important point is that out of the (say) 500 apps in a large enterprise, 50-100 or so could be easily replaced with GUI-level 2.0 apps. So many “critical business apps” are really database-access/query engines, or input interfaces, all of which could be consolidated into a series of lightweight web apps/services/simple pages. So “E2.0″ does represent, at the least, an important tool in the box for CIOs; may not be a sole answer to IT challenges but certainly helps on cost-containment and user-satisfaction.

    And keep in mind, if CxOs cave in to middle-IT-management opposition, we’re just coddling them and stagnating their own skillsets, instad of steering them (and the enterprise) into new arenas and skills.
