Perspective. We all have one and I argue it’s a foundational element for innovation and progress. Let’s look at a few examples from the wise:
“Cogito, ergo sum” (Translated: “I think therefore I am)
- Rene Descartes
A thought-provoking one, reflecting on the fact that having a perspective is foundational to our existence.
“Do or do not, there is no try”
Yes fictional, but so true to turning that perspective into reality. Looking at how this quote applies to our industry, the “do-ers” are the ones taking advantage of the innovative technologies in front of us to transform their business. The “do nots” are quickly losing competitive advantage and will likely fall behind. The transformation occurring in our industry is an imperative; there is no try.
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination”
- Albert Einstein
Reflecting on this perspective and how it applies to transformation is where things get truly exciting. Imagine where NFV can take us in a world with new services delivered faster than ever and all in an automated and intelligent fashion that is tailored to satisfy, even predict, the requirements from your customers. Happy end customers = differentiated Service Provider
This shapes our 3 perspectives…

The outlook for our customers’ business is also transformative; Infonetics projects a 400% increase for NFV market from 2015 to 2019.
