Question by charchar88: Cloud Computing the end of IT career?
I recently just got a certified as a Microsoft Systems Engineer and Cisco certified as well and I am working to upgrade to Server 2008 soon this year. I’m going to graduate college in another year so I’m not really working a full time career other than part time.
However I’m reading all this stuff about Cloud Computing and this and that and I’ve got to wonder if I am wasting all my effort and time if my certs and what I’m learning now will not be in demand 5 to 10 years from now.
Cloud Computing basically removes all the IT from the business to one massive securely controlled data center which essentially throws any need or demand of IT support or admin/system’s support out the window because everything will be done online ect.
I’m also not sure how Microsoft will encounter this in their server products post 2012 either.
So am I wasting my time or will my skills be in demand in the future?

Don’t be surprised! Soon, the IT department will soon be one person that just brings you a very cheap computer that is not worth fixing. No need for high memory because all of the hard work will be on the server at the company in the cloud. The data centers are probably gonna be located in India.
