There is still a vital role for software to play in management of
resources. The thing is that the software focus shifts from doing the
grunt work to managing the hardware that is doing the grunt work. Look at
even the router manufacturers. They are all going to putting the actual
routing in silicon and using the software to manage it. ASIC's are
changing everything ... quickly.
