CompTIA recently released an Infographic that highlights the operational changes taking place in the enterprise. I think it does a pretty good job of highlighting the current trends within the IT industry as a whole.
Of the 500 companies surveyed here are the highlights
- 72% added employees with skills to build private clouds
- 73% added cloud architects to their IT departments
- 50% say their IT department has moved away from maintenance tasks and onto more innovative work
The overall feeling I have is that the day of a simple break fix IT technician is quickly coming to an end. As the legacy software providers are replaced with more agile SaaS providers, most IT professionals will need to adjust with it. The focus will move to data security, accessibility, and solutions.
Take a look at the infographic and let me know your thoughts.
