Do you think the services we use are more of an ecosystem play? Listen as Tom believes that we have moved into the E2E model and defines what he means by that and what the E stands for. Yana says that conceptually she would love to see this E2E model flourish, but she is not convinced that we are there yet. Tom shares some examples where he thinks this ecosystem approach could be beneficial quicker. This is a fascinating episode. Where do you stand on the whole E2E ecosystem discussion?
