Re: Timeline
Definitely! It takes a good amount of time to get accustomed to a new form of technology!

Re: Once again, #1 is interesting but unsurprising, #2 is a surprise
@freehe Basic virtualization of things like servers was very early - and very simplistic. I think customers want to believe it's going to be that easy all the time when it comes to virtualization. Some of us know the opposite is true.

@dcawrey, Good point. Companies should not be surprised that it takes time to implement a technology so the fact that CSPs realize it will take longer to implement is laughable. They should know better by know.

When trying to implement any new technology there is nothing that can be implemented quickly. It makes me laugh when companies consistently think that a technology can be implemented in a short amount of time and then get disappointed when they realize it takes longer than expected.

NFV Rising
Virtualization provides companies many benefit including reducing costs. It has allowed many company to move from a hardware centric environment to a virtual environment that requires less staff. No longer do companies need staff to maintain hardware, it can all be outsourced.

Unfortunately, employees with hardware skills will have to learn new skills to rebrand themselves.

@JohnBarnes, there you go!  Competition is a GREAT driver and incentive for change.  Someone once told me that there are two reasons people change - fear or greed - either losing or gaining.  So competition does become an effective tool for people not wanting to be left behind!  The "adaptors" don't want to be left out - that works!

Re: For once, "tipping point" is a good metaphor
@JohnBarnes, well stated and great analysis! 

Yes, that is part of the problem in that with that change you are encountering new risks.  But the thinking has to become is the risk greater through change or by ignoring change?  (ie - is it safer to control the deck chairs on the Titantic or to explore new territory?)

Dhagar said,

And don't you believe that the "hurdle" of crossing the lines and moving beyond trying to control one's space and moving into collaboration and joining a system with co-creation takes another level of courage and development to move forward?

and you're right, of course. A hidden effect we may not be considering is that as we reach the point where we don't just cross over into new territory a few times in a career, but all the time and year by year, it becomes easier to do -- and progress becomes that much faster.

(So, of course, does any race toward disaster, and any change for the mere sake of change).
