IT is Always Reinventing the Wheel

Companies are reinventing things all the time in IT. In their own fields, when venturing out to new ones, it seems that every company is trying to do things their own unique way, albeit trying to bring something new and incredible to the market, but there is a fallacy to this approach that’s foiling their good intentions. Enterprise IT companies don’t seem to communicate much amongst themselves and that is causing them to repeat each other’s mistakes, develop partial solutions to full size problems, and as secure as they’re in their own silos, wouldn’t it be great if they came together and talked to each other, share their decades of experience, talk technologies, exchange their thoughts and help clear the doubts of one another? As we enter a new era of enterprise IT, it may be time to end this disengagement and communicate more, for the good of their own business and cater better to the customers they’re serving.
