This article is bang on. We're implementing governance mandated by the CIO, and supported by his direct report managers, "in theory". However, implementation is another story. The key thing is 'collaboration', however this is easier said than done, when there are conflicting needs, those of proper governance and those of getting the applications out with minimum of interference from others. People always will want to use the path of least resistence. Oh-oh, I already see the daggers...et tu Brutus...ahhhh
