I've been hearing a lot of data centers are going "dark." Barely any personnel on site, if any, except for security. Systems are mostly automated and the skeleton crew of upper level admins remote in only to respond to monitored events. The only time the lights come on are when [3rd party] vendors come on site for hardware related issues. And even then the life cycles of devices would be ultra short - both to keep on the bleeding edge and to prevent hardware issues to begin w/.
Seems to cut out a lot of work for entry and mid level candidates. But seems great for upper-level professionals that know how to market themselves well.
I would assume similar w/ NOC positions.

NOC jobs aren't going to go anywhere. We need people to be our first level support on issues that occur to midigate and report their findings to help upper level engineers complete their work quicker if possible.
