Yesterday I was helping out on a technical issue at one of our clients. It was, what we like to call... An intermittent problem. Things would work fine for a while and then all of a sudden. They wouldn’t. Someone might call in and report a problem. We’d call them back. And then as fate would have it. There would be no problem.
Working in the tech space you get to see it all. It’s a great education in the world of business, people and process. Any and everything happening in business today connects with tech in some way. Heck if you lift your head out of the ones and zeros for just a few minutes you might just learn something. Working alongside businesses as their tech partner provides a glimpse and often more into the inner workings of successful businesses.
It’s amazing how we make the simple complex. How we take a seemingly simple task and build layer upon layer until complexity has set in. We think we’re doing the right thing. We think we’re being thorough. We think we’re reducing the chance of a mistake being made. But in reality all we’re doing is adding complexity.
