Log in to Reply Ashish Tulsani June 25, 2012, 1:32 pm amazing slides…however an increasing number of technology companies are shifting their focus from services based to product based business models … Log in to Reply Rajat S October 23, 2012, 12:37 pm Great presentation! Really hits the fundamentals. Thanks for sharing, Alok. Log in to Reply Rajat October 24, 2012, 7:39 am Couldn’t agree more. I’ve started with services which has had its own benefits (i have developed loads of patience handling clients, improved my communication, learnt the importance of smiling to customers, handled freelancers, interns while enjoying a lot of time for myself reading and travelling). But then again, the success is not so fulfilling as launching a great product and sitting back and letting the money flow in. Services keep you on your toes all the time, but with products a lot of genius and patience is required at the outset. Ideally, the thing now to do would be to create products which directly complement my line of business so that i know exactly what products will bring me money and i can enjoy the best of both worlds…ideally.

Consulting cannot match the satisfaction and pride that comes from products. Log in to Reply Ratnakar Gokarn May 15, 2013, 1:47 pm Great share once again. Nice slides.
