Abstract: The quiet revolution of consumer IT reached a climax recently, with the adoption of smart consumer devices dominating the technology world, with rapid penetration into enterprise IT applications. This significant change of attitude, as well as reliance on information technology has been referred to as “Consumerization of IT” (CoIT). CoIT emerged with a global driving force that have been and would continue to reshape IT practices. This paper examines some of the IT challenges associate with CoIT, and relate them to IS educational challenges.
