Mark hear how you doing today? It's Friday. And for those of you on the blog, you can see it's an absolutely beautiful fall day. You can also see the steam coming out of my mouth because it is kind of that is a little chilly, but it's turning out and I thought it'd be cool to show you guys.

Literally. This is why we call it fall out all day between behind it's just going to be dropping its leaves great beautiful thing on the Canadian know I wanted to talk today about trust trust in companies Trump's an organization's trust in business. I'm in the reason why I won't talk about that is because I watch a really compelling video from Steve.

Oh and who is a productivity evangelist at Canadian Legend and he was talking about trust on his channel only that video down below and I'll tweet it out and he was talking about you know, what are the factors for you to trust a company to do business with them to trust him with your data recovered pretty much everything.

I thought it was interesting in a several minute long video. Not once was the question of risk posed and that's when we deal with all the time in technology all the time and security all the time in business. You can't just blindly trust trust isn't a binary. It's an entire Spectrum.

So where I might trust you with some minor transactional data, I don't necessarily trust you with my passport number or my cell phone service number for information like that. There's a spectrum hear of trust and the interesting thing is at the end of it. You can actually engender trust through the same way no matter what its transparency and consistency.

So the more transparent a company organization is in their aims and the more consistent they are in taking steps towards those aims the easier it is to trust them and put one of the key questions we deal with in i, t a lot of it comes across Securities played a lot is vendor lock-in and whether you're clearly and it or your, you know, just a normal business adopting tools.

Find software blocking is a concerned because if you were building or business on a particular type of cash register, I have to move that to another type is that in system no longer works for you. That's a significant burden and expense. If you keep going back into the back end of it, you're building your servers near applications and things like that on a particular set up with it at the cloud provider, which is where you probably should be or in agreement in a data center that's locking you into certain Technologies in there are some companies who absolutely avoid locking no matter what and that's ridiculous because they're not getting the advantage of partner with companies of using tools.

I'm building in there trying to be a generic it possible to move around and we saw this come up with a conference in San Francisco this summer. We're I'm there was a couple I'm in a private closed or session a couple people actually I mentioned that they done the calculus on and they done the math on it and was actually faster for them to rewrite everything and then to try to move it till they weren't worried about locking it on.

I think that's one extreme than the other is to go so generic that if you're not actually taking advantage of the platforms that you're forgetting. So trust is the Spectrum and a few what you need to do is evaluate the risk. What is the risk of this? So if I'm a retail business and I go with a square cash register, which is really cool iPad cash register you can flip around ties back into the square system.

So if you've ever used any credit card your emails to Gmail automatically a lot of benefits for the consumer and let's say you were a young set for retail and that works for you. But at a certain point they switch their focus and now no longer set up that cash register streamline for retail operations.

Maybe they start to adjust so that now it's something different and it no longer lines in your business names. What is the cost of moving off that platform with the risk of that actually happening? So there you go back and you look at that history of that company's he okay.

We're Square gone with this product is as part of an experiment for them as an actual line of business. You have to evaluate that risk in the way you can do that is if the company's been transparent in their previous, Tivities if they are transparent in their name and if they're consistent consistently going towards that and I think that's really how you need to evaluate in general and with every specific example.

So if I'm going to build my technology back in on cloud provider a how consistent have they been are they aimed and along the direction that I want to go with my company with my organization with my project and they consistently been going there. Now, of course the younger company is the less of a track record they have so hopefully they're taking additional steps to engender that trust but it's really a time thing.

You have to wait to see if they're going to be consistent because this is actually in this day and age anyone can say anything they want you can promise the moon and the stars and unicorns and rainbows and all that stuff the questions. Can you deliver in the course of your promising all that? You probably can't deliver and we'll see through in a mile away fingers crossed.

However, it's those people who are on the edge of possibility that it sounds too good to be true or hints that being too good to be true where people might get sucked in. I make the wrong decision. So time definitely is a factor, but really for me trust. It keeps coming back down to transparency and consistency.

Have you set a name? Are you consistently marching towards that under your transparent? Even when things go bad. Are you able to say hey, this is what went wrong. Here's the factors for that kiss what we're doing to resolve that moving forward. There's no easy answer here when it comes to trust just remember.

It's not a binary decision. It's not all or nothing. There's a spectrum in play a highly encourage you to check out I'm Steve. Oz video that I linked to blow in subscribers Channel have fantastic stuff that he's he's diving into on his new one as well as classically and auto tech but always good to see different perspectives and Steve got a wealth of experience that he brings to the table to share with all of us.
