Last month I attended the Acumatica Partner Summit. I found it to be a good learning experience. One of the sessions I attended was an Analyst Panel featuring R “Ray” Wang (Principal Analyst, Founder and Chairman of Constellation Research, Inc.); Brian Sommer (CEO of TechVentive); and Jon Reed (independent analyst and SAP mentor). During their question-and-answer session they talked about how companies that buy new software systems don’t want just new software–they want new business processes.Tweet
I have a reputation for calling things as I see them. For example, by now, many of you know I’m firmly in the Android camp. There really is no technical comparison (like, who remembers 2012 anymore?).
I find it no surprise that one by one our clients are turning to virtualization and private cloud infrastructure. As far as I am concerned, Amazon’s AWS platform is the definitive winner here. Let me illustrate with a real life example. Sorry, this may get a bit technical.Tweet
Ever been on a cruise or to a conference where the snacks were great but the breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings were limited and only so-so? I have, and even though there was plenty of food, I went away hungry.
And that started me thinking about the old clichés: You can’t tell a book by its cover and You get what you pay for. These may be old and tired, but they are still true.Tweet
