Even though the I.T. industry has sunk its claws deep into the modern business world, it too faces a threat from an emerging service. Cloud computing is rising more rapidly than any other service in the past. There are both seen and unseen threats building up the competition between cloud services and I.T. Some challenges that cloud computing has brought to the industry relate to its services while others relate to I.T. professionals.
Considering the vast size of the I.T. industry, it is difficult to overturn its foundations from the core, but based on the sudden boom of cloud services in such a short period of time, it is predicted that big changes will occur in the near future. It is foreseen that it could take a decade for cloud services to rule over I.T. if the progression is constant, however not all opinions on this matter are unanimous, resulting in a serious debate regarding this prediction.
