This is a general question for the community:

  At #CloudExpo2013  in Santa Clara, a ton of keynote sessions touched on the idea of the #Cloud  killing internal IT Departments within companies of all sizes. Most presentations noted that while the Cloud is killing traditional IT Departments, at least one - three members of an existing IT team will be necessary for communication and onsite tech assistance.

  Our question is this: How long do you think it will take before the traditional IT Department becomes fully decimated? How long will it take for traditional IT Departments to become legacy, sorted away in the dustbin of technological advancement? 

  Additional question: What amount of technological advancement and access will it take for IT Departments to become a thing of the past?

Looking forward to your answers.

Great site!
Don't fall for scams. We all want free gift cards to our favorite places, but really? Generally, you only get gift cards as gifts or by buying something. When you see something about "FREE GIFT CARDS" on facebook, it's probably spammers trying to get your information so they can send you copious amounts of snail mail marketing and email offers.
Don't be fooled!

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
