Building a great software is a continuous challenge. It takes a tremendous amount of cycle time, retention, and strategy. When you hear this notion about every company becoming a technology company, it means that they are adopting, building, securing, and developing more and more software. As a result of that, there is effectively a war on tons right now, across the world. There’s a lot of innovation being born in Silicon Valley. Companies are coming up to solve major problems for the enterprise, for the consumer, etc. So, I tend to estimate what is faster for me to be able to solve a major business problem. In my viewpoint, it is about working with companies who are facing a problem that I am trying to solve. Therefore, as a result, I get to work with a number of startups who haven’t executed at scale or are at an early stage of building out the product side. It’s a really good opportunity to influence it in a very thoughtful and deliberate way, but also in a very focused way. 

The second thing about being an early adopter is that there’s a bigger chance that you see problems and invade more. These companies are very data driven and they see things without a frame or a reference. This is why they are able to point things out which you may have an assumption for. Therefore, you’re like, “Well, I’m not just solving one, I’m solving many problems”. 

I really enjoy working with startups. I think people want to earn the business, they want to do things in a different way and that’s really refreshing.

There is so much of work happening around the world wrt to products and services. A lot of things are reimagined and reworked. Some products and services could add a lot of value and change the way we work and bring in new efficiencies. So, unless we try we will not know. And the cost of trying and failing is far less than not trying at all in this day and age. So, if we have the resources and a progressive company or an individual, its better to try and succeed than not try and fail.

I'm always looking to see is there something else out there that will help my operation. The industry is changing rapidly and what is a great product today may not be in 2 years. To ensure that you are on top of things you have to continue to evaluate new products etc.
