Consumerization of IT gets a guide and an acronym

If you are the first to develop a guide AND assign a special acronym to a technology or industry buzzword, does that make you the leader?  Maybe.

In a single release, Microsoft has not only posted a guide to the Consumerizaton of IT, but they’ve also put an acronym to it.

The guide: Consumerization of IT Test Lab Guide: Hyper-V Windows 8 corporate virtual machine on personal computer

And, the new acronym is embedded in the guide’s description:

Microsoft has enabled Consumerization of IT (CoIT) through many technologies for many years and now helps IT managers face security, compliance and compatibility issues they might deal with and give users access to corporate intellectual property from ubiquitous devices, both managed and unmanaged. Together, Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Enterprise add unique features to enable such scenarios.
