Last week I had a chance to do my second interview with Mark Hurd, recently departed CEO of Hewlett-Packard and now president of Oracle. We covered a great deal of technology landscape in 45 minutes, and one of the critical issues we covered included the title of this week’s issue.
Clearly, there are at least two religions in the technology universe today, when it comes to the future tracks of consumer tech vs. enterprise. The first, and the more traditional, suggests that things are going along pretty much as before: the enterprise, although facing increased security demands, will accommodate a few new phone types, and is becoming more consumerized over time.
