The Use Cases for Blockchain, Real and Hypothetical
" “Blockchain feels like the thing that is the hardest to parse the value out of the hype. With cloud computing, it was clearly an enormously hyped concept, but there were use cases and benefits. With big data it was coming out of actual real use cases at places like Google and Yahoo! With the Internet of Things, that’s probably the least well established of those at this point, but there are still established use cases for that. With blockchain it feels really preliminary."

Talking Competition: Methinks Thou Doth Protest Too Much.
"I think ceding builds your credibility, but you need to be careful and precise in so doing so. To take an old example, from BusinessObjects days:

Bad/sloppy: Brio is doing pretty well.
Good/careful: Brio is doing pretty well — in the USA, with companies where the end-users have a strong voice in the process, and they prioritize UI over security and administration."

Not your fathers influencer relations - by @dealarchitect
"There are so many of us “small guys”. Not just small - but with access to a large number of executives. Vendors struggle with this proliferation of smaller firms – a bit like Gulliver in Lilliput. The administrators at Oracle and others have taken the word “independent analyst” to literally mean “independent contractor” with all the paperwork needed for IRS compliance. Cannot blame them, but it sure complicates AR."
