    Doesn't this imply there should be some high-paying CEO positions vacant, waiting to be filled?

    Many thanks to all who had replied to this thread.
    It is indeed a fact that there are challenges facing IT.

    However real issues will have to depend on the time and
    level you are in. Would you have realised the question is on
    the intense challenges. It will not be of significant if you are
    not aware of the purpose of IT and its consequences. What is
    the real purpose of IT then and what it has done to humanity?

    Here are the quotes from some of the replies:

    "you need an area of specialty to outshine others".
    Correct one of the purpose of living is to keep moving forward, to
    do better and to specialize. So it the same in every other industry.

    "fanciful applications that can almost anything".
    This will be a divine gift if these IT people can produce such
    applications for the betterment of mankind and its environment.
    One of the thing should be to make all humans to be able to live in
    better, healthier, happier and in a more harmonious condition.

    "Users want everything fast fast.
    Management want everything cheap cheap....and still fast fast".
    It is natural for man to keep on pressing for speed in doing every
    task and at the same time to do it at lower cost. So people who
    can create and produce such will survive. There will be those who
    don't mind products or services of a lower quality provided they
    are paying less.

    "Further reducing IT cost."
    People are putting on their thinking caps 24 hours a day to come out
    with such plans...to keep reducing cost. This is a measure you have
    to take in order to compete effectively and to survive.

    "Implementing a massive online system which requires hardcopies to be kept for verification as well as taking a much longer time to do the same thing?"
    Pehaps it would benefit readers if you kindly give more details on
    this massive online system you are mentioning. This is where the
    challenges are but you are talking about taking a much longer time
    to do the same thing. I think you mean the opposite, that is to be
    able to do the same task at a shorter time?

    "whether you are able to accept much lower pay across the board.
    jobs will always have. is whether you want to accept a not."
    True to the dot! However most are still sleeping or are in their
    wild dreams of not getting a rotton pay with their IT knowledge.
    Those who can change to suit the circumstances will survive.

    "After all, there is more to IT den to juz turn on computer and using it as a glorified typewriter."
    Another real vision again. IT is all around us and everything is almost
    connected from the plain drive in a motor vehicle to putting on a jet
    shoe for easy walking. If the mindset is only for looking at what is
    in front of you, then the keyboard is just for hammering a few keys.

    "IT is a very broad sector. The programs I write aren't the normal ones that you run off your PC."
    The world needs thousands of people who are talented like you but
    make sure the end results is not to destroy fellow humans.

    "this is machiam my exam question...incorporating interactivity into all levels of IT...be it physical interactivity or in terms of interface..."
    Well, there will be different level of knowledge and vision when you
    are still 24 years old and a student. Most likely, your thoughts are
    channelled to passing your examinations first. IT with human
    interactivity seems to be a waste of human efforts. Would there be
    such inventions in the future?

    "IT is a damn 'pai than' industry. With people of varying levels of competency entering the market daily, cheaper, etc. Within no time, your knowledge is obsolete & so are you... Not to mention fixing bugs, data patching, etc."
    You are to get better and better each day and year. The world will
    never stops advancing as long as there are humans living. So when
    you want to take a rest or rest others will push you away and take
    the lead. Once you know your knowledgeis obsolete you got to get
    your brain working again and make sure this time it will work into
    other more complex areas you have never dream before.

    "U make it sound like IT ppl ARE superhumans."
    It is a fact you are! People who are fearful of IT are always negative
    in their thoughts and these are influential. When your mindset is
    more positive you do things more efficently. There is always a
    reason why some humans are known as "superhumans" It is a
    reality for those who admit that they are not.

    "IT=Information Technology leh. Robotics and vehicles/transportation are diff industry'"
    All technology is connected in a small or big way with IT.

    "Well for the camera/medical industry, the most challenging one will be implanting a camera in your brain. At the moment, all of us have a built in camera but it cannot print images onto paper and might get lost in the memory bank. Too much built in gigabytes."
    Good thinking and people like yourself will be most welcome to
    go further to discover your higher self in order to contribute to
    mankind not to conquer or control one another.

    "For travel/transportation, i like to travel to different galaxies. Travel thru worm holes or time/space warp or better still, travel in the speed of light!"
    This can be a reality in time to come. All we need is to put more
    people with this same concept in a round table to put the plan to
    fruition. This is indeed one of the intense challenges. I would guess
    if more such people is able to work unselfishly and prosper together
    the dreams will come true in perhaps 20 to 50 years from 2006.

    "Zooom! See you on the other side of the universe!"
    Yes, this can come true when more people sincerely work on it.

    I would suggest that the reality in IT is to make this world a
    better place to live in.

    More green environment, preservation of wildlife, no pollution
    in the air or water, less deadly diseases and less destructive
    behavior of man's nature.
