Are Technical Consultants A Dying Breed?

There are some macro-level changes in our market as we emerge from the recession. Cloud computing is changing the world faster than many people believe.

I normally don't cross-promote my blogs, but I wrote an article over on the Cloud Services Roundtable blog you might find interesting.

Summary: Your job is going to disappear if you don't change what you do and how you do it.

The Bottom Line: There isn't enough room in the small and medium tech support market to support all the technicians who exist today. Many have already disappeared. Many, many more of them will disappear in the months to come.

"The Computer Company" that doesn't sell services will simply cease to exist.
