Because of this, there aren't a lot of tools on the market to solve these problems and we've seen an increase in ops staff and highly skilled experts to take on the end-to-end lifecycle problem.
From a supplier point of view, there's little venture capital driven innovation in this area because the Operators don't want to go into production because there are no tools to simplify the production, but its chicken and egg. Without the investment in tools for production, there's no innovation.
