3 prescriptions for the modern IT leader

One of the interesting facets of the digital revolution transforming the modern enterprise is that it’s creating new human challenges and opportunities. The IT head’s role is undergoing big changes due to technology, but those changes require new people skills every bit as much as technical chops.

It would be cheaper and easier to manage these conditions on an ongoing basis,

For a while now there have been maven archetypes for creating mule apps and domains. Such archetypes make getting started with development easier by automatically generating the basic core structure and files of mule projects (think configuration files, test classes, pom).
