In-house application
Moving fully to cloud-based services can disrupt workflows in many areas. Adapting over time should prove to be win for many departments within the organization. The introduction of the OWS lab is especially interesting. I look forward to reading more about Huawei's innovations in the coming years.

Re: In-house application
@Michelle - I agree, moving to fully cloud-based services can cause a lot of problems. But I also think their initiative of getting all employees using cloud-based services all the time will actually help in the long run. But getting employees not only actively involved, but fully used to working in the environment they are creating and a part of will not only create buy-in, but also will benefit customers as well.

Re: In-house application
@elizabeth You're right, they could have taken a different approach that didn't involve a transition period for employees. Choosing a more inclusive option should benefit them as they move to the cloud.

It surely is a good idea to consider phased approach to move things to cloud instead of opting for all at once move.

Can you imagine the mess it would create if they had decided to move to cloud with little forethought? Rushing into a new technology or workflow is usually a bad idea.

Re: In-house application
@Michelle - They also could have created a large employee backlash. While most likely would have followed suit because let's face it, finding new jobs anymore isn't easy, especially ones with the pay you are accustomed to. Even if employees would have chosen to deliberately complete tasks just a little slower than usual, or not do something exactly the way they were asked. Even little things can end up making a big impact. In the end it could have had a very negative perception on the part of the employees, who even if they might not leave immediately, might always be just a little less satisfied in their jobs, a little more willing to look elsewhere for employment. Thus creating turnover, which is expensive for all companies.

Agree with you. Only thing I would like to add is finding that right tool turns out to be one of the key factors. Sometimes without right tools and direction we may end up going in cycles with not much result. But at the end of the day we all have to agree that there is lot more to be achieved in security.

Re: In-house application
@Michelle I used to do QA & also IT project management. It's amazing how often companies implement major changes without the proper planning and testing required to avoid serious business disruptions. I wonder if sometimes vendors downplay the intricacies of implementation in order to make an easier sale.

Stats
Two years ago, we set a goal: We had to develop at least 3,000 internal IT experts. Though we encountered great difficulties throughout this process, we raised the bar for the second year -- we had to develop 10,000 IT experts. Now, our goal is to develop 30,000 skilled IT experts.


These are interesting stats. Very impressive trend to notice. IT skills an dexperise is undeniably an absolute critical need in these changing times.

Move to Cloud
We think IT era and cloud era will be the same in this respect. How can we gradually move to the cloud? To be frank, nobody can say for certain what the process is. But we can try our best and, step by step, we will certainly find the right solution.


Makes sense, IT era and Cloud era are very similar in aspect of progressive growth. There is no har set or defined peocess per say to move to cloud. A company can plan the move agile way - step by step or phased approach.

Re: Move to Cloud
I would say you do the move to the cloud the same way you learn to walk in tai chi chuan (which, among many other things, is a method of practicing to improve your kung fu). You learn to move each foot in a rhythm of pick up-extend-place-shift, i.e. while balanced on one foot, you reach out with the other, make contact with the new place you intend to stand, and only once you know the ground is good under you do you shift your weight.

So the answer is, at first you keep whatever absolutely must work at home on your own servers, and extend a wholly optional pathway into the cloud (pick up). Then you grow that pathway as far as it can go without difficulty (extend). Then you determine what benefits can flow back and forth along that pathway (place). And finally--only then--you actually migrate functions to the cloud, gradually losing your local-server mirroring. (shift).

The metaphor goes further: Of course, you learn to do that very slowly in several different tai chis (despite what the folks in St. Cloud and your local yoga studio may tell you, there are hundreds of different pais (forms) of tai chi). Eventually you do it so automatically that you are hardly aware you have learned to maintain your balance and your ability to retreat constantly; you move as fast as a kung fu master but with perfect balance.

So I suspect the first advances into the cloud will be slow and hesitant, but the last steps of "cloudization" will go like lightning (and just possibly kick us all in the head before we know what's happening.)

Re: Move to Cloud
@John Barnes.  This is an excellent article and most clearly provides definitions of the distinctions that need to be understood in the cloud era.

I find your analogy as an excellent further insight into the "transformational" and "learning" process through adoption.  It truely must be an exercise and discovery if it is going to be successful; and if the customers are going to gain value.

Great contribution!

Re: Move to Cloud
DHagar,

One of the more successful/useful wealth coaches out there (Michael Masterson who rebranded himself as Mark Ford) popularized the useful term "chicken entrepreneur," i.e. a person who launches new enterprises by committing as little as possible to them for as long as possible, to make sure that if they crash early, you're not part of the test group for crashing early. I tend to think of it as "rational capitalism." People drastically underestimate the cost of uncertainty!

Cloud Era: Growing Together
It's just amazing that a major global securities company trading systems work was basically still done manually. They owe it to their customers to be more advanced than that. The cloud has been around for quite a while now, although as stated in the article it is going more vertical now to "production processes." I guess the cloud has to be implemented in baby steps.

Re: Cloud Era: Growing Together
srufolo1,

It's sort of the wisdom of evolution -- Samuel Butler's objection about "what good is half an eye or half a wing?"  The answer turned out to be vital to our modern understanding:

the first eyes were just light-sensitive spots on the skin because light was where food was or predators weren't, and organisms needed to move or not move if there was light.

the next eyes were the same spots down in pits so the organism could have a sense of direction, and this necessarily led to some coding of neurons to the pitted spots

then a transparent lid ... probably a safety thing

then a transparent lid that acted as a lens ... so one eye could provide more information ...

and thus evolution leads to Bette Davis.

The first wings, probably sails for better catching the wind to cross ponds, or membranes for very small critters to limit their terminal velocity, aka parachutes. 

And with almost all tech, the first uses are very small extensions of existing purposes.  Photocopying was ideal for preparing offset printing plates, the first word processors were wizards at corrections and form letters compared to typewriters, and the first spreadsheet was invented by two guys who were wondering why, if  programmers were being required to diagram things on grids all the time, the computer couldn't just run the grid diagram.

I believe Huawei definitely is a leader and understands the developing markets.  It is clearly true, in my opinion, that the vertical systems are different from the horizontal.  It is said in business that vertical attention "controls costs", but horizontal coordination is now where "value is created".

Huawei has the vision, leadership, and is taking great strides in building this capability with their partners - a successful model in my opinion.

@batye, good example.  Yes, which makes sense because Sony has the capabilities to develop and produce the visual results.  They have produced movies and used multiple media tools in doing that - so they have the the knowledge, experience across the media to enable them to put it together better.

Great thought!

On the prowl for the day as I saw this...talk about covergence & the cloud...now that would be quite fascianting (and what even will be more fascianting if all of a sudden Amazon eats up Dish):

Sources: DISH, Amazon in talks for wireless network
DISH Network's Charlie Ergen and Amazon's Jeff Bezos have been discussing partnering up for a wireless service, sources say. Amazon could provide funding for DISH's network for the internet of things, while the company could also offer DISH and wireless services for a higher Prime membership plan, a source said.

@DHagar, I agree. I want to live to at least 120. Time is a commodity. That was also a line in movie I watched a few weeks ago. If the cloud can give people more time and help them manage their time more efficiently so they can focus on the things that really matter such as family, health, etc. that would be great. But most people use the cloud just because it is the latest technology not necessarily because it can provide benefits to their everyday life.

But your point of not just spending time but applying it to what we value is an entirely new and very important concept.  That is where quality of life will improve.  Thanks for sharing.

And we need those systems to be integrated as much as possible to maintain that connection and eliminating duplication / redundandancy.

Context sensitive goal setting is much more effective than standard / flat goals. I wouldn't disagree that there has to be set of standard goals to make sure that we are on par with the industry and its direction. In addition a subset of goals must be context sensitive. That will ensure that a company is not bringing itself out of its own boundaries in the verge of catching up with industry standard goals alone.

"This year, we've called out to all of our employees: In the cloud era, if you want to be a Huawei-er, you need to get used to living and working in the cloud. We expect our employees in field offices to spend more than 10,000 hours on the Three Cloud platform. Our aim is to help them adapt to cloud-based processes, and get accustomed to finding the knowledge they need and developing their skills on the cloud. Through this initiative, we hope that more and more of our employees can adapt to and embrace future challenges. So far, we have made greater progress than we ever expected."

That is great. Huawaei is truly investing in their employees and working to ensure they employees are really knowledgable about the products and services they sell. If only all companies did this in the U.S. what a difference it would make for consumers and B2B.

The cloud is reshaping our networks and our processes. As he stated, production processes are different than ecommerce. The cloud is going vertical, affecting everything we do. And in order to keep up, companies need to partner with experts so that the transition is seamless.

What matters the most is to know the perosn's style, attitude and personality and tweak your working style catering to their needs and seemlessly convey the message without making it sound very obvious. They get the message and also don't feel offended at the same time. That works well most of teh times.

That whole team would have so much to offer in terms of their experiences when they join a different team. What could be any other effective mode of learning than experience.

@ms.akkineni, your teen will benefit by listening to your great advice!  Absolutely, but learning is difficult because you need to listen PLUS think from new perspectives by choosing to open up your thinking to new ways.  That is the only avenue to continued development.  Otherwise, we are judging everything by what we already know!

Ask your teen if they would feel confident solving their teen, and future adult, challenges with what they learned in kindergarten?

Yes, they definitely face an "attention deficit".  I do not envy teachers with today's youth.

@DHagar:

You may be joking. But unfortunately that is the reality today. Many at times I try calling my son. He mostly doesn't answer, but texts right back saying 'What?'. I believe that is the trend for these teenagers. Talking by phone is considered old fashion and talking thru texting is the cool trend, i would assume.

Re: Cloud Era: Growing Together With Partners
@ms.akkineni, no,  that is absolutely true!  They have quit thinking that there is any other means of communication.  It can actually take longer communicating via digital means than speaking directly or getting on the phone.  Being "connected" seem to be the only legitimate means!

@DHagar:

Exactly, I fail to convince myself to accept that trend or behaviour. These millanials or even some of our peers cosider texting to be more effective way of communication. I can't generalise one or other means because it all depends on who we are trying to contact and for what purpose. There surely are situations where texting is by all means preferable choice but not always.

@ms.akkineni, good points about the purpose and the means!  Who knows, maybe carrier pigeons may work as well?  Just joking!

LOL, Thanks for making me laugh. Need that on this monday afternoon.

On a serious note, possibilities are endless in this ever changing age. Who knows what needs to be yet experienced in the world of communication...we only will find out as time passes by.

@ms.akkineni, indeed!  Glad to add humor - one more PS - if pigeons are not available we can go with "smoke signals" (on clear days)?

@ms.akkineni yes as in some cases CIO fail to explain it clearly to everyone on the team or they learning themself and instead of trying to coprehend and explain just give buzzword around... ps: if I do not know something I say I do not know and try to learn it and figure it... learning ... not repetition of the buzzwords...

I hear you. But unfortunately not may C level folks are willing to say 'I don't know'. There are some though would be pretty honest and willing to learn and they are the ones to grow even more.
