Gartner says business will shift IT from infrastructure to services within three to five years. IT professionals warned to adapt business-value skills or risk being marginalized.

The technology prognosticators at Gartner say the convergence of new IT delivery models will fundamentally transform the way businesses consume and interact with IT within the next three to five years.
