What's next in IT: Intelligent systems, stressed-out staffs

Rob Enderle | June 24, 2013
The future of IT will be systems that are intelligent enough to detect and solve problems without human interaction. This will be great for analytics but bad for security—and it may leave IT workers reaching for Valium.

While the future will clearly bring us far more intelligent systems that can make creative decisions on their own, the internal security systems that protect them likely won't be up to par. We tend to fund line systems at a very different level than staff systems, and security is a staff function. The future may be intelligent-but, unless we're really careful, it will likely be even less safe, and far more stressful, for IT.
