I think its just redefining some of those IT jobs being done inhouse and out sourcing them probably to meet business objectives – its still same old wine in a new bottle.
But my fear is that IT professional in employment will take the bashing once they have little less challenging jobs to do and the C-executives will see them more as a unnecessary cost centers.
Am I communicating?
IT job profile keep changing and it adapts to changes. As long there are innovations there will be jobs. We just have to be opened minded to the changing definitions of our jobs. There wont be the traditional jobs that were available years ago. Anyone who is willing to learn, adopt, move forward, will have jobs.
