Is the cloud going to put IT professionals out of work?
ttopp 2 years ago
One of the selling points I see from cloud providers is that they will save companies money by reducing the need for "expensive" IT staff to maintain networks/servers/etc. Sounds good, I guess, unless you are a member of that IT staff. What I hear is, "here is a way to put you out of work." Every time I see an advert for cloud services, I feel like it's a threat to my continued employment, to be honest. Am I being paranoid, or is the cloud a real risk to IT professionals' careers?
