Business publishers are fairly immature on technology issues

according to Patrik Dyberg (CIO Business Information Group, The McGraw-Hill Companies) fare to often (like the in the naming of a ABM Top Management Panel) publisher ask 'How can I make technology work for me' instead of asking 'How to I make technology work for my customer'

More from Matthew Schwartz on

I can - unfortunately - only confirm, that publisher to often concentrate on the "I" or "Me" and forget that they run - more than ever - a service business
