PRLog - Jan. 5, 2012 - Cloud Computing will have a profound effect on the role that IT plays within an organisation, so says Cloud Computing experts, Ziptech Services. They believe that the time needed to be spent on traditional hardware and software administration tasks could be reduced to almost zero - freeing IT professionals up to concentrate on understanding and supporting business processes and end user needs.

“Cloud Computing is an IT revolution - there’s no doubt about that. As with other technology revolutions there is always some fall out. In this case it is traditional IT department roles and responsibilities that must morph into what businesses now need - or die. Cloud computing will force IT professionals to manage software systems, to understand departmental processes and data requirements and to manage them,” says Jim Simpson, CEO and founder of Ziptech Services.
This new way of working however does not necessarily mean job losses for IT professionals. Instead it is an opportunity for the focus to shift from infrastructure to the business itself.
“IT professionals are used to reinventing themselves - it’s the nature of the technology space that game changers occur regularly. For most IT employees there is an acceptance and expectation that lifelong learning will be necessary to keep knowledge ahead of the curve. Cloud Computing can be seen as one big opportunity for IT professionals to add more value.” comments Simpson.
Ziptech prides itself on being at the forefront of providing SMBs with the types of IT services that they need to run their businesses efficiently. They were one of the first IT Support companies to offer packaged Cloud Computing appraisals, helping clients assess their needs and advising on how Cloud Computing could work to improve their current business set up.
