Being proactive is of paramount importance while thinking of all the grey areas of your customer, which means you need to clearly understand their domain/ vertical.
While you will use best-of-the-breed technology to solve customer’s problem in a cost effective way, at times you ought to even think of some rudimentary non tech solutions.
