On the post you read how IT is taking a lot of existing brick-and-mortar stores and even casual ways we used to do business like sending mail, filling form, paying bills and the like.
That is a good testament for ever expanding universe of IT. You can see it day to day that part or all of your interaction is dependent on IT. Even, when you are loosing internet connection from your phone for seconds, you would go, well..
So, if we have all these kind of IT based automations here and there, it will tell us someone has to create, maintain, update, add feature, test, delete, mess and even create havoc on them right?
Not only that, softwares systems get easily outdated in this day and age. Security issues, performance, user accessibility, regulation changes, geo-politics and more things makes a nicely crafted software to be outdated.
