I'm not shure if I got your Question right but I'll try an answer.
The prototyping itself could be done by a non IT-person (scientist for
example) who tries to work out and solve the problem on scale of
'proof of concept' (not fast). This ist mostly done in a skript
(Perl, Python) wich are easy to learn. The ITpro would then turn the
concept into an application that does the work faster.
