Research: 71% already automating IT work

New inventions often make people's jobs easier and faster. Many such inventions also threaten occupations by replacing human workers. As technology booms, the need for human intervention lessens. For instance, messaging and calendar programs have replaced many receptionists and secretaries, and table-mounted touchscreens at restaurants mean that fewer servers are needed.

Sometimes there are new opportunities that surface as a result of new technology. Obviously, the personal computer has led to additional jobs to support the industry.

Watch Tech Pro Research Senior Editor Teena Hammond discuss the future of IT jobs.

Automation is one such area that has tremendous potential for benefits as well as job loss. In the IT realm, automation involves examples such as scripts, scheduled tasks, password reset portals, operating system deployment, configuration management and elaborate monitoring capabilities. By automating these tasks, companies can free up system admins, developers and other IT staff to do other jobs.

But it also can lead to job loss, particularly those related to basic operations. To find out the impact that automation is having on IT, Tech Pro Research conducted a survey and talked to 353 respondents to find out what, where and how they are automating, where automation isn't a fit, and how and where automation has impacted jobs at their organization.
