As an IT practitioner, the best thing I can hope for is when IT (or technology at large) becomes a differentiator for the business. This ability inspires. For example, Loreal can now do hyper customization of makeup i.e. manufacture very targeted and specific makeup for the individual based on skin type, oils, etc. This is possible by technology. This is a huge differentiator for Loreal. Similarly, for Amazon, technology and IT makes the differentiators which helps consumers know what they can order, when it will arrive and even where it is right now in the shipment cycle.

Much like , I'm inspired by the fact that my job is fun, I'm supported by my leadership and stakeholders, and ultimately, I'm enabled to innovate. That innovation allows me to make the maximum impact possible on my business and facilitate change where change is long overdue.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
