WILL TECHNOLOGIST’s DELIVER?
Technologists have wonderful products, more so IT & revolutionised our existence. They have delivered commercial products worldwide. Technology adoption besides this has not been at the required pace. Many technologies have not been adopted properly or just partially or gone out of disuse. Even basic customisation of products does not happen. Integration is a issues, difficult task. We operate at degraded level.
Only inventors, discoverers & innovators don’t inhabit the world. Their’s life beyond. We live in an inherently contradictory technology world with brilliant technologies & frameworks; with not even enough technical Human Resource’s to manage its real horizontal extension. No innovative usages are suggested or made out generally. The intermediate companies who have to make it happen have decided to become sellers. Improvisation doesn’t happen. The catch is that the technologist does not understand the domain & not realising that this marriage is a must, he continues his techie living.
The customer, the practitioner, the domain knowledge guy has already declaring himself incapacitated & wants to handover his technology / IT needs, lock, stock & barrel to anybody who is ready to take his onerous burden. The cutting edge level technologist & the practitioner, though being together, are unable to make a worthwhile interface, with a capability to deliver. The domain guy is not ready to learn technology, this is the catch 22 situation we are in.
India system is replete with such wide crevices in which we generally live. Domain today includes the understanding of the technology pertaining to that domain. Systems thinking of the day cannot have a system bereft of technology from the domain. Technology should benefit the maximum users. The governments / businesses have still to leverage technology in a big way.
IT IS EASIER FOR A NON- TECHNOLOGIST TO LEARN TECHNOLOGY, THAN A TECHNOLOGIST TO LEARN A DOMAIN.
