The implications of the recentralizing and decentralizing of the information technology (IT) hardware architecture on an organization are discussed. The decision regarding the degree of centralization depends upon the organization size and its links with other organizations. Several examples of the companies such as Valeo and Siemens which adopted decentralized or centralized structure are also discussed. It is suggested that an organization must consider its decision making structure and status of key business drivers before recentralizing IT hardware architecture.
