Digital Transformation CEO looking to Turn another company into a Digital Disruptor
NEC - Retired but Looking to lead another Transformation April 2001 - at PresentI led NEC, (1) of the Big (4) Telecoms (Nortel, Avaya, Siemens) from manufacturer and distributor to a vertical market based network solutions and services provider.
Recognizing that Telecom would soon experience a disruptive "Open Systems" Transformation similar to Computing's Disruptive history (DEC, Wang, Bull, IBM), I created a "Holistic Digital Transformation" based on treating Internet Protocol (IP) as an operating system, and I steered NEC to new ground as the Telecom Market's first Network Applications Solutions and Services Company.
Just as Computing's DEC, Wang, and Bull Closed their doors, so followed Telecom's Nortel, Siemens' sold off its divisions, and Avaya sits in Chapter 11.
Today, NEC is prolific and dominant player in the Digital market whose DNA now lends to reoccurring Transformation.
