Being involved in the same industry for over two decades usually means that you are able to witness multiple innovations and changes that help shape the industry as we know it today. Typically, these changes are made to improve efficiency, productivity, scalability, costs and security. As these changes are implemented, businesses that take advantage of them will reap several benefits, while businesses that remain stagnant and averse to change will become less valuable to their customers. Business survival in today’s world depends on if you’re willing to embrace change for the better or not. If you adapt quickly, you’re going to be rewarded handsomely. If you’re resistant to these changes, you run the risk of becoming obsolete.
