it strikes me that if you have to ask, there probably isn't a compelling story to tell. why do you feel a need to tell one? the best IT is an IT that no one is aware of. IT *should* be an utility. if it's not, you're not doing your job.
"Today's robots are very primitive, capable of understanding only a few simple instructions such as 'go left', 'go right', and 'build car'." --John Sladek
