Question by Calvin: Will “cloud computing” be the final nail in the coffin for the IT profession in America?
Many IT jobs have been outsourced to India, etc. Do you think with cloud computing, the remaining IT, networking jobs will be outsourced away from America?
Answer by austinjb1
No, companies will always need IT to manage networks, computers, help desk, phones and internal applications. Even cloud based applications still require interfaces which would typically be built by IT. The “cloud computing” is just another method of running an application. It does get IT out of the business of running a data center but not all applications are going to run in a cloud so some sort of server room will still be required.

Small summary on Cloud computing
Cloud computing refers to the on-demand provision of computational resources (data, software) via a computer network, rather than from a local computer. Users or clients can submit a task, such as word processing, to the service provider, without actually possessing the software or hardware.
