Re: Game Changer
Isn't that the truth we have so much at our fingertips now that we expect everything to happen instantly and, especially a generation brought up on smartphones, will go to whoever gives them the best product in the fastest amount of time.

5G Helps
"The digital economy is running much faster than our internal business processes. Enterprises are always looking to connect with different service providers and cloud providers around the world. We need to move faster because the alternative is to be wiped out."

"We might be able to work with the 5G guys to leverage our requirements for end-to-end connectivity, but we may lose that if we are not fast enough," he said.

5G will help companies to process faster and deliver services faster. Albeit it will not solve all the problems companies experience.

Many companies that cannot keep up will go out of business and get bought out from larger companies. I suspect there will be M&As in the future.

Game Changer
""They buy differently. It's on-demand, it's high quality, it's control. What these guys do very well is they take a function and they expose it to someone else. As a direct result they demand that from us. For us, if we don't meet that expectation, they move on to someone that does."

The purchasing process has changed significantly. Companies will have to shorten the time it takes to process orders, shipments and payments to keep up with the competition. Companies want to receive services quickly. Loyalty will no longer be a factor when purchasing products and services.

Transformation
"The competitive environment is changing rapidly," Bozich said. "It's not just telcos competing with telcos, the lines between those different segments of the business, different segments of the marketplace, are getting blurred every day. CenturyLink is going to be as much as software company as we are an infrastructure provider if we are going to compete in this new digital economy."

It is amazing how fast companies transform. Apple started out as a computer company and now offer that top selling smarrtphone in the country in addition to all the other ventures they are working on.

The playing field has been leveled and any company has the potential to capture any market if they have the resources and budget to do so.

Companies will no longer be labeled as a software company or telco as they will all be providing multiple services.

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
It is unfortunate and again part of the true realities we live in.     Best wishes to your husband as his quest continues.

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
@mpouraryan - My husband is currently trying to find a new job, and he recently had to deal with an online personality test. Something we've both done before. I'm not a fan of them. I don't think there is anything to be gained from a vague test about someone's personality to show how they will be in the workplace. I am a confirmed introvert. An INTJ if we're going the Myer's-Briggs route. But I am well adapted to the workplace, and am more than capable of being an extrovert when needed. Since that's really the only way for an introvert to adeptly survive any team work environment. Just because an online personality test shows the personality I am most comfortable with, doesn't mean I don't have an understanding of how to navigate a working environment. Which you can't see in a personality test.

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
I would assert that the situation you mention (regulations that don't continue on) is a result of the people who control this country. Given that technically, it's the people with the money who are making the decisions. And the people with the money are the people who are effected by the regulations. So they work to control those regulations to their benefit, no matter what the human cost of that benefit is. The current net neutrality regulations, a gift from someone who previously worked for Verizon. Why wouldn't Verizon want to see net neutrality go away?

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
someone once said that the older one gets, the more amenable to change one must be--as for getting old, it is a fact of life (as is death).   The question is what do we do in between as we try and bookend a fabulous life!!

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
Being able to be "digitally native" should be welcome by all--I was noting this as I got a flash about a major Earthquake down in the Pacific...so vital ever more....

Re: Digital World Accept it or not
Did you drive through it?  What did you find out?   What lessons, if any, can be learnt?
