More on IT change

Information technology(IT) or the former more popular vernacular, data processing(DP), continues to change at warp speed. IT has and always will be the most fickle of all professions. In the IT profession, we say: “change” or be “changed”. IT professionals will forever be challenged by the ever-changing computer. Here are a few quotes that further support our assertions:

"Computers in the future may weigh no more than one and a half tons."
—Popular Mechanics, Forecasting the Relentless March of Science, 1949

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."
—Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943

"I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won't last out the year."
—The Editor in Charge of Business Books for Prentice Hall, 1957
