Interview with Neil Cattermull

1

Role of Influencers in Tech Decision Making

We start off discussing how influencers play a role in deciding the pace at which people and businesses adopt new technology. Neil credits his success as an influencer to the fact that he reads a lot and is heavily opinionated.

He has a bit of advice for anyone interested in becoming an influencer themselves. He urges them to keep reading, keep analyzing global situations and keep expressing their opinions. It has to be consistent.

Read, analyze and air your opinions. The more you do that, the more people will respect you.

2

Adoption of Technology


We then went on to discuss the adoption of new technology in banks and even across geographies. He says that countries like France and the Netherlands are quick to adopt new technologies. Even the UK is adopting new technologies rather quickly because the entire situation is quite competitive there.

3

The shift in focus- from Hardware to Software

Neil even goes on to talk about the shift of focus from hardware to software and that software is evolving rapidly. He says that having new software is now considered to be far more important than having new hardware. Companies are fine with using the same hardware for 3 to 5 years but need to use the latest in software.

4

Blockchain and IoT

He talks about the benefits of using Blockchain and the various domains and spheres in which it could be used, especially in tandem with IoT.

He says that we can even use blockchain to have transparency and see where our food comes from. That means that because of blockchain, we could see greater transparency in supply chains.
