The entire article is a summary  of the movie.  What struck me when reading it was basically the last paragraph.  I started out as an IT consultant over 17 years ago, then transitioned my one man shop into a staffing/consulting company.  There is a tremendous amount of inefficiency that can be siphoned out with some intelligent automation.
