Sample text

Iivari, R. K. Klein trary deals with a constantly evolving artificial world of IT artifacts, which are developed and applied in the artificial worlds of organizations and societies. e. the system of legal procedures, codes and precedents (Collins 1990). In the IT field, the IT experts cannot control which IT artifacts are developed and how they are applied. In fact, the IT field probably resembles engineering more than anything else. If so, it is worthwhile realizing that engineering has been much less successful in its professionalization than medicine and law (Collins 1990).

The rise of outsourcing and especially offshore software development may also play an important role in professionalization, although at this point it is not clear whether it would be pro or con (cf. Sahay et al. 2003). Yet, it is questionable if companies employing IT experts are ready to support professionalization, since the exclusionary shelters may influence the labor market in a way that is not beneficial to employing companies. In this paper, however, we do not wish to discuss the political side of professionalization of the IT occupations nor do we wish to become strong advocates for professionalization.
