Pakistan Has Talent, It Needs Its Marketing: Global CTO Stephen

Pakistan (Nut Desk)

Pakistan is rich with human resource talent but it needs to be marketed well to reap the desired benefits for the country’s social-economic system, this was stated by Stephen Brobst, Global Chief Technology Officer Teradata.

Speaking to the audience at a conference “Leadership in the Digital Economy” here at the local hotel, he said he had been working in Pakistan’s market for the past many years and he found immense talent in the field of technology and business.

Pakistan should market itself in different markets because it is facing an issue of perception building in foreign countries, he said. Marketing does not need only for the business and IT and technology for many other fields including archaeological sites like Mohenjo-daro.

The talent is very much in Pakistan so we (Teradata) are operating in Pakistan, he added.

I have been working with nearly 14 universities for upgrading their curriculum and they are very aggressive in updating their academics related to technology, data analysis, and data science, CTO Teradata.

Speaking to CEOs and CXOs he said the disruption emerges after every 10 years in the world like the internet, financial crisis, and pandemic. Surprisingly, more winners come in disruption than in the status quo.

If companies are not failing, there is no disruption, learning, and no innovation. Disruption made people uncomfortable as if the stress builds on innovation during the Covid-19 times.

He suggested business leaders embrace the disruption and transform it for growth.

Companies need to decide if these are brittle or resilient. Brittle organizations do not have room for disruption. Resilient organizations are highly adaptive, designed to learn from failure, self-organizing structure, and communications, Stephen Brobst

The use of data is the best approach to adapt to the change however machine learning and AI can be utilized to use data analysis, Stephen Brobst

The collaboration is also very important in business in the world these days, Stephen Brobst concluded.
