Re: Increased automation
"I think if there is no middle ground between automation and employment of labour, then this could merge as a problem."

@SunitaT0: I agree. But it's difficult to reach a point where you create a balance between automation and employment. As long as there are savings involved and benefits to be reaped, companies would prefer to automate regardless of what long-term impact it may have on the labor.

Re: Increased automation
Stratustican,

I daresay not all those Unemployed IT Folks(who have lost their Jobs because of Automation) and can't be re-trained (for whatever reason) feel this way today.

We are very much in the Transistion phase today and somehow the Available IT Oppurtunities while there are'nt quite all that they are made out to be[Although I could be missing some obvious oppurtunities here].

Re: Increased automation
I don't think we are going to get to that point just yet.  There is still a high need for skilled folks who can build out the automation infrastructure and to ensure that the rest of any systems that will utilize it are up to date and able to stand the transition to a more automated environment.  The transition stages will be the most critical, with lots of opportunity for folks with the right skills to get involved in this next wave of IT model change.

Increased automation
I'm sure the human element in IT industry would feel left out if they were replaced by high work value automation. I think if there is no middle ground between automation and employment of labour, then this could merge as a problem.

Re: Unicorns to learn from
"They set the bar for performance, companies can't afford to ignore them."

@chris: I don't think this will ever stop. Just think about companies that are growing vertically (i.e. taking their business to the cloud) and now think about the amount of options available to them at this point of time, with so many less players. In 5 or so years this market is going to be teeming with competition.

Unicorns to learn from
I'm not so sure that the web giants are all that unicorn-like, and I would say that on the whole the fascination with them, especially for reasonably large companies, is a healthy one. When FedEx created a new data center, it mirrored the general purpose data center infrastructure architecture of cloud providers like Amazon; as Fidelity is building a new data center, it's borrowing aspects of Facebook's use of the Open Compute, open-source hardware movement. They set the bar for performance, companies can't afford to ignore them.
