I want to let you all in on a little secret: The IT industry is littered with buzzwords.
We in the tech press certainly play a role, and we throw around our share of buzzwords — as do vendors, consultants and analysts. While there is no shortage of candidates for the most over-used terms, working with our colleagues at the CIO Executive Council, we asked three CIOs for their picks of the most hyped and least meaningful buzzwords. And the answers weren’t surprising. (If they were surprising they wouldn’t be buzzwords.)
