The Future Of Software
1 of 5
Ian Pearson believes that Software Services will go out of fashion over a period of time.
Difficult to Believe Today ?
Consider the Analogy of Information Technology to that of A Transport Vehicle.
A Transport Vehicle takes us from one point to another.
Similarly, Information Technology Delivers to us Certain Relevant Data, Information and Knowledge that is important to us today.
This helps us move forward from our current positions ahead in our personal and work lives.
Do we need an army of full-time mechanics to help us use our transport vehicles in our daily lives ?
Similarly, Organizations who today need armies of Information Technology Software Creators and Maintainers (Software Mechanics ?) may not need so in the future.
Hence, if Information Technology becomes a Utility like Electricity, Power, Water, Gas, etc then Software Services would perhaps not be needed in the future.
