I started work at Gartner covering Supply Chain Management (SCM) since I used to be an old SCM guy. Never actually working in IT, I spent a career working on the business side, always alongside IT, begging, pleading, cajoling, and upsetting IT folks with ideas on how to make business systems do what business people wanted. Well, you can take the man out of the supply chain, but you can’t take the supply chain out of the man!
