Mr. Araujo is an writer with a talent for distilling into words the dramatic changes happening in the Information Technology industry. His "are you Walmart or Nordstrom" analogy is spot on and it really crystalized the binary nature of what IT is today. I have been a CIO for over 22 years and I have read literally hundreds of books on IT and I can say that The Quantum Age of IT is the best. Hands down! Every CIO and senior IT professional should read this book. My only complaint is there is no Kindle edition! What's up with that? A technology book that doesn't leverage technology? Overall, Charles does an excellent job of explaining what IT as we know it is deal and why you need to determine if you are a Strategic Sourcer or a Strategic Innovator. Then he tells you what to do about it. Go buy this book!

"This is the most definitive book on IT Transformation I have ever read. It clearly identifies how to perceive, treat and integrate IT as a true business function. It should be required reading for all current and aspiring CIOs, CTOs and CISOs. This paradigm shift is happening right now and this book demystifies the steps needed to make the journey successful. Bravo!!"
