How SaaS is Changing IT Departments

As software as a service (SaaS) tools continue to gain more popularity with businesses, it's only natural that on-premises, perpetual license software will decline in usage. That's already resulting in significant changes for information technology (IT) departments in many companies. For example, technology managers recognize that they will need staff with different skill sets, new infrastructure to support cloud-based technologies, and a complete overhaul of their processes to support their evolving mission. Here are the most significant ways that SaaS is transforming IT departments.

Hiring for Different Skill Sets

Traditionally, IT staff have been expected to possess highly technical skills because workers needed to be able to manage and configure on-premises software and servers. However, since cloud-based servers require less technical expertise, IT departments need fewer computer science graduates with programming and database management skills. Instead, technology workers need more proficient in business analytics and savvy decision-making skills. As more companies transition to SaaS, it becomes more about creating business processes based on what the technology can effectively support, as opposed to customization, because that's how it's always been done. Therefore, IT departments will likely hire an increasing number of business graduates - and fewer computer science grads - in the future.

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the interconnectivity of all devices, from smartphones and wearables to smart vehicles and homes. As of 2020, there are over 24 billion IoT devices and according to technology experts, that number is multiplying rapidly. As the number of interconnected smart devices continues to grow, it will indisputably transform life in many ways.

1. The Internet Will Become Even More Interconnected

Currently, most devices, apps, and websites work independently of each other. However, as the IoT grows, the digital world will become more of an extensive ecosystem. This Internet ecosystem will be built on smart devices that are connected to central hubs to make sharing data across platforms faster and more straightforward.

2. Smart Appliances Will Do Mundane Chores for You

In the future, your smart appliances will be capable of doing many of the mundane chores that are currently your responsibility. For example, smart refrigerators will manage your grocery lists. Your fridge will take inventory and inform you when you are low on certain food items, and you’ll even be able to set it to (automatically) reorder specific grocery items for you when they’re running low.

3. Cloud Computing Will Continue to Grow

The most effective way to facilitate the rapid growth of the IoT is through the use of cloud-based platforms. That's because your smart devices must be able to run cloud-based apps so that they can stay connected, wherever you go. Therefore, as the IoT keeps expanding, cloud-based platforms will grow too.
