A classic example how increased automation capabilities in PaaS and IaaS are transforming analytics engineers’ roles.
Technologies like Infrastructure automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), cognitive computing, etc. are soon overtaking the job roles of DevOps, ITOps, CloudOps, and jobs alike in the IT industry one step at a time.
The new service Amazon S3 Select facilitates applications to retrieve only a subset of data from an object (by using simple SQL filters) — a task that developers used to take care of. Now, it’s overtaken by IaaS and automation.
Soon, PaaS, IaaS, and other automation technologies will abstract major layers of analytics, product development and operations across verticals.
Automate everything: this should be the way forward, we think. What do you think?
