Most of the IT industry is wondering how cloud computing will reshape the IT organizations in the coming years beholding its pace today. The view that cloud will decrease the role of in-house IT has been going around since cloud-based services originated. But new figures published by a company providing best-practice and research in a variety of sectors –provides a whole new idea.
Some of the ways which clearly show as to how this cloud innovation is reshaping the IT industry and technology and other factors which showcase a prominent trend if not just a pattern are as follows:
According to a survey, headcount in IT roles only will shrink by at least 75 per cent if not more by 2015. Whether people agree with this figure or not, these trends are clearly driven by the adoption of cloud hosting. As firms adopt cloud solutions, they rely less often on tasks that were once most important for the IT departments. Some large firms are going to have an impact on some individuals but in majority of the cases the change will result in a shift of the technology completely.
System Integration Method:
People argue that integration is the core of all this. But a major problem is that many IT departments have been outsourcing the integration of critical systems to the big integrating systems. It’s not enough to get cloud services interact with one another. Companies have to invest heavily in coming together themselves, and no supplier can achieve this himself. One thing is for sure, the more we depend on cloud services, the bigger a challenge this is terminally going to be.
Eco-Technical System- A Solution:
One obvious solution could be to move towards a healthy eco-technical system but these systems suggest that a possibility of enjoying the plug-and-play feature of the cloud services poses a larger problem for many enterprises than just SMBs. The IT departments which owe their integration aspect to larger firms would stay transfixed to the cloud till the time comes when their systems are put to rest.
Transformation paving the way:
Having said that it would again be the larger firms only with extensive IT personnel for changing tapes and writing algorithms that would undergo the biggest transformation, and not everyone trusts that IT departments will surely shrink as mentioned above. The next task would be to ensure that these services are implemented successfully. Once achieved, the transformed business system will manage the processes that the new technology caters to.
It is very certain that cloud computing will accelerate and reshape the evolution of IT firms for the coming years but something that businesses are far less certain of is when they plan to employ their first Pervasive Mediatrician which is very likely the IT people of tomorrow. A very common hope is that the shift to the cloud will result in more opportunities.
It is still very unclear as to what the future of IT departments hold and how it might look by 2017. The roles are plenty such as Data Analyst, Process Manager and of course, the quintessential programmers. Innovative people are now becoming tech savvy, and there is a huge requirement already in business for creativity that works smoothly with technology.
