Is Cloud Killing some IT Jobs

Communication and System Admin IT Jobs Lost as Movement to Cloud Continues

IT shares a number of characteristics with manufacturing - that mean cloud adoption will automate some IT jobs out of existence. The jobs at greatest risk are in telecommunications and system administraton.

Automation takes people out of the repetitive and routine tasks. That in turn reduces both labor costs and the variability in the results.  That in turn eliminates overhead, errors, and downtime. As cloud use increases and datacenters shrink, the staff that builds, maintains, and troubleshoots the datacenter network, servers, and applications aren¬ít needed. Thus fewer people are needed to manage workloads, security, and vendor contracts.
