Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@batye, thanks!  That is your true capacity for the future.  If you ignore your human capital your technology investments will be marginalized.

@DHagar:

Couldn't have said any better. I like the term 'Organic Growth', and that is the real value and benefits that organizations envision to see.

@elizabethv, I am with you!  I believe we do a disservice to employees and the organizations when we do not look beyond the tasks and skills they have been using and upgrade those skills to new value jobs.  I believe that is the future opportunity for growth and win-win solutions for all.

@mpouraryan, well it certainly is about solving the customer's problems - in the ways they define.  So Huawei providing a new platform to enable organizations to transform offers a key bridge to improved performance with technology.

If they keep their focus on this it will be a winning proposition.

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
That's a good goal to aspire to-although the reality is otherwise right now.    I continue to remain hopeful, though as I took comfort in this:

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
The question is where the focus must be in order to create the true future we all aspire to.    It is in the end about making lives easier in the end--right?

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@mpouraryan - I wonder what those jobs entail exactly and if their positions could be repurposed or salvaged elsewhere? I would imagine they are all much too qualified for table waiting, but perhaps they could work in design? Security? Tech Support? I'm sure there must be someting for at least a portion of them.

@ms.akkineni, which creates the capacity to grow and develop true organic growth.  This is where the true returns and economic gains begin to show up and produce real value.

Re: A lot of "sunk costs" in older network tech...
@mpouraryan, very true.  That would only reinforce the most expedient answers, which actually works against true transformation.  Transformation requires new investments and the cost of transforming into new high value returns; otherwise we stop short.
