Automation has revolutionized many industries in measures that ordinary people can understand. But this progress has a cost … on employment. Because in some cases, automation made redundant jobs. However, this does not mean the IT landscape will be transformed through automation. In fact, it could create new jobs. And here’s how it could happen.
The automation requires a sophisticated code. And every time a company needs to change the shape and scope of automation, programming is also required. And it will be even more true when the automation of IT will be available for SOHO / SMEs.
Automating it does not always looks like a huge vibrating noise warehouse robots on the lines of car assemblies. Specifically, it nests in more familiar places. Automatically answer emails, IoT; automation serves primarily to gain traction in the field of mobility. Working on mobility projects provides related activity automation that is not ready to stop.
And all these connected devices … those who could take the role and place of the employees? They will need serious protection for computer security. And not only to prevent someone to hack a system and steal data but to prevent users from accidentally harming systems.
Security will therefore continue to grow in importance in the developing automated systems. Security experts have accordingly no care has to be about the rise of automation without IT.
However, the automated systems will not just need a safety margin to function properly. Their reliability will be a key success factor. Regardless of the brilliance with which an automated system was designed. If it does not work, it is worth nothing. IT professionals will therefore be dependent on experts to ensure that these systems are reliable. Charge them to keep an eye on the code that runs the automated system, which operates on the entire automated systems and devices on the code end of the chain.
5. The design
Automated systems should be designed. And guess who is going to do? Engineers and IT professionals. Automation is far from a cream pie in certain sectors, and it will be based on the experts who have the skills to design systems able to evolve towards more modern and more efficient era. Also, some automated systems include applications and individual services to be assembled together. Here too, it is a job for IT professionals.
6. The creation, repair and maintenance
The consciousness of artificial intelligence is still currently the domain of science fiction. We are still far, far away, when the robots will manufacture robots or situation where robots can repair themselves. So you will be responsible for the creation and repair automated systems for some years! And we are far from the days when companies can operate without IT. So no matter how systems become automated, companies will always rely on the IT staff.
7. The limits of automation
Although like C3PO robots are deployed in business instead of IT personnel, there are still areas of the business that automation can not control or use. Take for example the email servers. Although we can quite realistically expect the arrival of the time when an automated system can maintain a mail server, this one can not in any way up and restore emails from a specific period of time or troubleshoot a server when the solution does not meet the standard criteria described by the provider.
8. System complexity
As automation makes its way into the business world, these systems continue to grow in complexity. This means that the average employee can not keep pace with this complexity and integrate it into their daily workload. For this, he will need staff who can think quickly and come up with ideas and solutions to a much higher rate than at present. The classic management, in some cases, will be replaced by profiles of managers with strong expertise in IT.
9. Continued progress
All the progress we are making in the field of automation will only create more demand. As companies move towards automation, we note that there are “things” new and better can be achieved. As these discoveries occur, the need to employ IT professionals will be stronger. From this perspective, automation will only contribute to the development of IT.
10. Decision making
take an important decision remains the premiere of human resource. Leave your fears aside, automation will not change anything in this situation. In fact, most systems are automated, more companies are dependent for their development and operation.
