IT or BT? The debate is on!

We have heard of IT, MIS and IS as acronyms to define the information management wing of every company, I just came across a debate to rename this to BT (Business Technology).

This is very interesting, at the core, IT or IS or even MIS describes the function they serve well. By renaming to BT the emphasis is clearly on engaging the business and ensuring that the business can succeed and has the tools to effectively leverage technology to improve efficiency, effectiveness, productivity and bring about change! (or transformation if you prefer).

I am in favor of this rename and new acronym (though we have too many already!)
