    I think we'll see it for some time, as IT skills are becoming increasingly vital for the functioning and success of any business.

    The trend thus far has been for more IT, not less. While we may see a consolidation in providers and a shift away from dedicated hardware on premises to data centers "in the cloud", ultimately I think the driver of people to manage all that interaction is the need and ability to have people manage those sites. Even though they might be off premises, and technology may be able to handle much of the grunt work, more small entities will probably help keep the hiring and active engagement in IT vibrant for quite some time to come :).

    It's hard to say, software and technology jobs in general certainly aren't going anywhere but the job market is changing. 

    If we are speaking strictly in terms of the US market, it's sort of cyclical. Large companies think they are getting a bargain by sending some types of labor to developed countries. But a combination of doing creative work across cultures and the fact that sending jobs to these places raises their standards of living (and salaries) means that the bargain is a myth. This causes some jobs to come back.

    Depending on which area, I can see a lot of growth. Security and devices that connect to the internet will keep expanding. An area of slow down may be internal corporate programming and maintenance of legacy code. Every thing seems to be going mobile, and in house applications to a closed environment have not shown much growth.

    As long as IT people can make a business case for their services. If they get lazy and try to convince people to implement technology for technology's sake, that's not going to work once the economy slows down.
