Re: Customers
 "getting it ready and wheeling it out" versus "bring out a wheelbarrow of parts and a toolbox and we'll build it right there in front of them."

Very good point, and that is what makes this more challenging.

Re: Customers
ms. akkineni,

Getting the product or service in front of the customers is important, surely, in all businesses, all the time. But what is relatively new here is having to build it in front of them, and make the design decisions while they watch. As a development environment, there's a world of difference between "getting it ready and wheeling it out" versus "bring out a wheelbarrow of parts and a toolbox and we'll build it right there in front of them."

Re: Transformation
And in the modern world, talent is really only needed for the brief period when "doing it at all" is difficult and not well understood; all things that require talent will sooner or later be automated.

Re: Transformation
The skills will be perfected – the industry will certainly support that. Despite any uncertainty right now, this is the direction these systems are going. And as long as the job includes the right amount of salary and perks, there will be talent available.

Re: Analogy
I was going to make the same comment! It's refreshing to see a company put emphasis on developing existing talent, instead of hiring new recruits or outsourcing the work.

Re: Customers
Yes well put. The most important factor in any business is the customers. So the fact that they're putting them in the front line of this new advancement is a great move.

Analogy
"I always equate it to [sports] development leagues, or minor league teams where we actually have a great talent of people with ridiculous knowledge of the game, but what we haven't done yet is actually perfected the skills to support where we're going."


This is a very good analogy, Well said !!!

The difference between past technology advances and this one, according to Feger, is this wave is unfolding in front of the customers and the people who are developing the technologies and services.


And this one is the utmost important thing for any enterprise. The ultimate goal is to reach the customer base and make sure they receiving this new piece of technology.

Real Questions
"I think overall, everyone agrees this is good stuff, but where I really believe we struggle is with the talent," Feger said. "How do you operationalize this? How do you interact with the customer? How do you educate the customer because this is new to everybody and we're all experiencing it at the same time?"

 

These are absolutely the practical questions that often hit the minds when any new demanding trend is ready to hit the markets.

Lining up resources to deal with this NEW thing is the very first thing. Enterprises need to be proactive with their training etc to make sure there is readiness.

Operationalizing is another challenge. For this the key thing to bring readiness in your customer base. This is not as easy as you work with your resources. This needs lot of cutomer education.
