Questions that Google can’t answer -The face of evolving Networks

Questions that Google can’t answer -The face of evolving Networks

If only I could Google the answers to how I could reduce the cost of delivering ICT and what solutions I really need, life would be so simple. In reality these are questions that Google can’t answer.

For many years with the advent of the cloud, we have been talking about the benefits of integrated communications technology (ICT) and its capability to pull together voice, data and video. The advent of smart phones has seen accessibility being available not to just to the most tech savvy companies, but into the hands of most consumers including a significant shift into the pre-teen and primary school users.


The education sector is now seeing the real advantages of rather than banning devices from the classroom but treating, the device as part of the establishments own ICT infrastructure and using, the computing power and format that’s today students are familiar with.

Apps have created a demand for masses of data that can be accessed at the touch of a button instantly from any location. These apps are not just amusing gimmicks or social media, they are essential “lifestyle managers.”

Cloud evangelist have told us that there is no need for us to own anything or store any data on our own premise’s, just “simply” upload or down load as required. This coupled with software defined networks reduces the physical footprint and management of any network.

We all accept that the needs have changed over time

Google has now become most people’s first port of call for information:

  • To review
  • Learn about Products
  • Assimilate Various Features
  • Product Benefits
  • Product Features

The issue today is that as highlighted above, there are many factors, stakeholders and technologies associated with a traditional network estate that will have evolved over several years.   This will have included the matching number of years sunken capital budgets being spent to service the needs at that particular time.

We all accept that the needs have changed over time, and will continue to do so, even if we are not sure how. The key challenges are how do we continue to utilize value from our existing estate, while not spending on unnecessary replacement technology that adds little to the overall strategic solution.

Now just for fun try googling the question below and see if you get anything that resembles an answer!

Google how do you fix a bus, full of passengers, that is moving at 50 mph?

Interestingly it comes up with a list of questions based on safety and codes of practice!

The answer is of course- Very carefully!


In confusing Google, we have illustrated that the issue is complex and one that requires more questions prior to a prescriptive answer being tendered in seconds, because maintaining a completive advantage using ICT is not just an answer to a multiple-choice algorithm that we can take a guess at.

A consultative approach is essential not only to determine what the current position is, but where strategically the organisation is heading and as such what will be the impact of the ICT strategy for your company and relevant industry sector.
