Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@batye, I like that - "nothing is more permanent than temporary" - great reality of today.

Yes, the key skills today are not control, but the ability to adapt and develop resiliency - that is what will effectively enlarge capacity and survival.

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@DHagar thank you :) the way I see things in this economy you have no other choice as to take smart/calculated risk to survive... as there is nothing more permanent than temporary... and movment must be constant factor...

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@batye, that is a great point!  Today, you can hardly move forward without risk.  So it is a well planned and calculated risk.  They seem to recognize that you either move forward or get left behind, and have calculated that is a better risk!

Note:  Those making no decisions think they are playing it safe, but it is a decision not to decide and make change, which may be more risky!

@batye, so right you are!  And Huawei seems to recognize that in the way they are facilitating clients and solving customer problems effectively inthe transition. 

They can win on two counts,their own agility. and their ability to provide services to clients in enabling them to change effectively.  Smart move!

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@mhhf1ve, very true - people will stick with what they know and the decisions and investments they have already made.

However, I think that is what Huawei has identified now in building better business cases and designing and implementing those into organizations with better business solutions that is the opportunity to truly complete transformation.  I believe they are correct - that is the hurdle that needs to be overcome.

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@mhhf1ve:

Absolutely, 'Sunken Costs' are making companies to step back in transformative initiatives not only limited to Cloud but many other areas. In addition technology at all fronts has been chnaging at a rapid rate and longeivity has reduced significantly. That is adding even more reservations for companies to invest further, besides the fact that companies like to see future value for any transformation. I think that is a fair expectation.
