IBM IMPACT: Canadians want to skip the theory and get hands-on

Here at IBM Impact 2009, I was afforded the opportunity to ask Manoj Saxena, vice-president of global business services at IBM, what differentiates a Canadian SOA customer from other jurisdictions around the world. Saxena has been working with a number of Canadian companies, one of which being Research In Motion.

He told me that Canadian companies seem to be a lot more pragmatic and hard nosed about business outcomes and values.

“They get the vision, but they want to start getting down to what it can really do for them,” Saxena said.

So despite our reputation as being a passive bunch, it seems that most of us want to skip the corporate speak and hammer out the real issues.

Makes you proud to be Canadian doesn’t it?
