Cisco-AppDynamics $3.7 billion deal all about the data - by @ron_miller
"Speaking at a press and analyst event today, AppDynamics CEO David Wadhwani acknowledged this was in fact the long-term vision for the platform. “We are moving from systems of records to systems of engagement — and that is the short and mid term. [Looking further out] we are moving to systems of intelligence when you rely on automation and machines to make decisions in real time,” and that’s where they ultimately see it going, he said."

News Analysis: Plex Adds Supply Chain Planning With DemandCaster Acquisition - by @rwang0
"Prospects can keep Plex in the short lists for Manufacturing Cloud. While large vendors such as Oracle and SAP try to move down market, prospects continue to complain about the high cost of ownership and complexity despite a cloud delivery. Smaller competitors Rootstock and Kenandy still lack the full functionality of Plex. Netsuite’s acquisition by Oracle may cause some distractions during post-merger integration. The result – limited players in the space."

News Analysis: Oracle’s $9.3B Acquisition Of Netsuite Is About Cloud Consolidation - by @rwang0

News Analysis: Acquisition Brings Salesforce Customers To The Commerce Party - by @rwang0
" Salesforce outbid many competitors to win over Demandware. The acquisition gives Salesforce.com ammo to fend off IBM Smarter Commerce and Hybris deals, despite Hybris mostly being on-premises based. The future of CRM includes commerce because at the end of the day, conversion rate optimization matters. Going forward, Salesforce could include the B2B commerce space adding partners such as Avangate, Cloud Craze, and Digital River as part of the overall industry vertical strategy. Meanwhile, expect Adobe and Microsoft to step up their efforts around B2C and B2B commerce."
