Pain rules but is that rational?
The axioms that speed always wins and pain rules are true enough all too often, but I'm not sure well run companies would hold them up as guidance. It seems to me a  CIO engaged with other executives can teach the business to avoid some hazards leading to pain, even while tolerating some amount of shadow IT. It's simply irrational fire-fighting all the time for the business to allow speed to win and pain to rule in every case.

SaaS Smarts
I find it surprising that SaaS vendors are not all over the typical IT concerns (security, performance, integration with internal systems, data portability). This is a pretty mature area. Do you see SaaS vendors, even smaller ones, begining to be more proactive in this regard, or are they in general betting on the business to beat IT into submission?
