It’s difficult to track cloud computing without stumbling upon a few stories about cloud computing coming in and pushing IT workers out. There’s also the threat that if they don’t adopt cloud computing, they’ll be labeled as “non-innovative” and shoved out the door just as fast.
I hear about these concerns more in one-on-one conversations than in meetings these days, as it’s become very politically incorrect to push back on cloud computing in public statements. My response is a bit different, depending on whom I’m speaking with, but the core notion is the same: We are always evolving IT; thus if you’re in IT, your job is going to change much more often than other industries — so get over it. Cloud computing is not the first disruptive technology to evolve approaches, skills, and career paths, and it won’t be the last.
