I couldn't agree more the whole IT system admin/ network admin / IT Manager etc "profession" is dead or a least on it's way. We will be increasingly seen as a uncessary cost on a the business as more and more companies move to the cloud. IT certifications are a waste of time, peddled by IT training companies whose very existence rely on them.
I find it laughable that they are still advertising the fact that a career in IT is a worthwhile venture:
"Earn 30 K a year with a bright future - become a systems engineer " they shout. If only the naive new recruits realise whats in for them.
