Where are we going, and how do we get there?

Okay this question has already been asked a thousand times all over the Internet but this is TechRepublic, a conglomeration of talented professionals with real insight, so I am interested to know from you.

Seeing how recent disruptive technologies have made managing the enterprise easier and drastically changed the computing landscape, what does the future hold for the IT professional? Will there be more work or less work? Will the work become more mundane or more involved? What does all of this mean for emerging/declining markets/industries?

Advances in technology, such as the one everyone is touting these computing. I call it a disruptive technology because it has enhanced the way companies do business and has altered the IT landscape in so doing. You could call it something else, but one definition of the term is "to interrupt the normal course or unity of" something. Interpretation as to whether these types of advancements is a good or bad thing is up to the person.
