I choose #6.
IT HAS a problem with system source code and must determine how to resolve
this. I.e., what language and what platform to port the old source code to
and they must determine whether porting is the answer at all.
Business HAS a problem with being able to support customer requirements
BOTH need to do a better job of viewing future business and technology
trends. What better opportunity to do that than when faced with the greatest
problem either has faced?
Remember it was the lack of being able to see the advances in storage
technology and the unimaginable changes in business climate that has us where
we are today.
Intellectually, we had the brain power back in the 60s, 70, and 80s to avoid
this problem to begin with, we just did have the character or strength of will
to plan for short term AND long term solution to the problem.
It was the mentality of "NOW" that has brought us here.
Now we must all pull tremendous resources together, business, IT, government,
and military in order to solve what was a trivial expedient.
