The multiplier effect (remaking marketing priorities)
"B2B Buyers don’t spend most of their “buying time” engaging with vendors or their content. They are talking to each other (so ABM strategies help here), but also looking to other people that they trust–analysts, press, bloggers, other influencers, and their peers."

SAP Inside Tracks stretch SAP’s Marketing Event Budget by $1.9 Million
"It usually is really tough to quantify in actual dollar amounts the impact of a thriving community on a company. Regarding events, you can calculate how much they would cost if not organized by the community. In this post, I am going to demonstrate that the 39 SAP Inside Tracks that were held in 2017 stretched SAP’s marketing event budget by a cool $1.9 Million. I say stretched because SAP would not spend that money but still gets the value."

A Framework for Supply Chain Leaders to Understand Supply Chain Analytics - by @lcecere
"While blockchain and cognitive computing are believed to be the most disruptive within five years, less than 7% of companies are actively testing these technologies today. While immature, the two together offer great promise. We continue to push the envelope to help companies test these technologies through the share group for the network of networks. The next session is at the GS1 Headquarters in Chicago on April 4th-5th. Let me know if you are interested in joining the discussion and learning more."

Innovative, Disruptive, Enterprise Focused and Boring – Choose Four. Reflections on SAP TechEd - by @fintanr
"The conundrum for SAP is how to attract new developers while keeping their existing users happy. TechEd is not going to be this forum, but SAP have clearly recognised this and are reaching out into other communities."

In Digital Transformation, The Art-of-the-Possible and Average Practice Are Diverging - by @dhinchcliffe
"This herd mentality of digital actually has numerous causes: Proven best practices for digital are too few and far between, successful experiments are often hoarded for competitive motivations, digital innovators by definition take on often untenable risks we’d prefer to avoid, and perhaps most of all, we are still trying to get used to the rapid pace of learning that digital requires to stay abreast."

Building the Network of Networks: Some Insights - by @lcecere
"2) Detours/Potholes and Spiraled Learning. It is easy for groups to get caught up in discussions of technology for the sake of technology. Chasing pretty objects is alluring. The group’s foray into blockchain discovery was a detour with fruitful insights. While blockchain as a technology is very promising, the definition of network governance is a strong precursor–the number of nodes, what gets written into the blockchain infrastructure, and security/authentication. This world is in flux, and we are not ready to have this discussion."

Cloud Native – Solid Roots, Time To See Beyond Kubernetes - by @fintanr
"We do want to highlight that the team running Cloud Native Con are actively trying to improve things – from organising child care, offering free passes, travel support and so forth. Their parent organisation, The Linux Foundation, has also started to put in place specific policies around speaker and panel diversity and other areas. Small steps, but steps in the right direction none the less."

On the Myth of the 10X Engineer and the Reality of the Distinguished Engineer - by @fintanr
"One of the greatest myths perpetuated in the software industry, particularly by recruiters, over the last number of years has been the idea of the 10X engineer. The idea that some rock-star or ninja can arrive into your team and will code his (and in the case of the self-described 10x engineer it is invariably a guy) way through everything you throw at them in an incredibly short time. A myth. A fallacy. And missing the real qualities of a truly great engineer."

Engagement and customer loyalty - by @denispombriant
"The answer is engagement, which is hard to do until you conceptualize a more full-bodied relationship model. I’ve listened to a lot of vendors tell me all about speed and accuracy, funky websites, and who knows what else in their efforts to define engagement. But that’s engagement from the vendor’s perspective and too often nobody studies the customer side."

Data Driven Software Buying Decisions - by @mfauscette
"Peer review communities: Well I’m a little biased here since I work for one, but there is a lot of valuable data to be gleaned from peer reviews. From a references standpoint the crowdsourced nature of the reviews, which are in reality in-depth surveys, the information is much more likely to meet all 3 criteria."

How Chatbots and Artificial Intelligence Are Evolving the Digital/Social Experience - by @dhinchcliffe
"Digital engagement is once again shifting, as we can see from the main discussions at Facebook’s F8 conference this week about the new release of Messenger and its smart chatbots, or when we look at what’s happening with popular team messaging services like Slack, which is being “overrun by friendly, wonderful bots.” While bots seem like a minor improvement to digital user experience, some believe — including myself — that a combination of today’s latest technologies will transform this what’s-old-is-new-again technology into a major new force in contemporary digital experience and social engagement."

Spotting Fake Online Reviews - by @mfauscette
" If a review is completely or mostly lacking in specific details about the product, the user experience and the reasons for a good or bad review rating, there may be something wrong. In the course of using a product, and then relating your experience it is natural to share specific details, something about the process of using the product, the way the experience makes you feel, or what happened when it was used. Vague reviews are of little value in general, and could signal that a person really doesn’t have personal knowledge of the product."

Comparing Software using Peer Reviews - by @mfauscette
"The software buying decision making process can be complex and varies by company. Just by the nature of the process it’s necessary to build a list of potential solutions and then to compare them in some way to a list of business and technical requirements and to each other. Everyone has their own mental model on what a comparison should include but there are ways to facilitate the analysis of the information by presenting it in ways that can be easily consumed."

Dear IT Department, Why Community Management Matters - by @dhinchcliffe
"While I’m singling out IT departments for sometimes not providing the right resources to make online communities successful, the reality is community management, what I’ve long called the essential capability for online communities, can be neglected or underserved by anyone. Yet long-standing research from highly respected organizations like The Community Roundtable have found to be a top successful factor in realizing a social business solution."

Buying Business Software - by @mfauscette
"Peer networks are a newer type of influencer resource and are gaining popularity. These fall into several types ranging from public social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook; to community based peer review platform sites like my current employer, G2 Crowd (and in fairness several others that vary somewhat in approach but include TrustRadius, Software Advice, GetApp and Capterra)"

In addition, Macy’s announced the closure of 36 stores and K-Mart followed suite with announcements of 27 store closings. For December 2015, retail sales were the lowest since 2009.

Enterprises and Open Source: The Important Role of Commercial Distributions - by @bart_copeland
"I recently did a webinar with Jay Lyman, Research Manager at 451 Research, discussing the trends in open source programming language adoption by enterprises and how they impact the overall business. It’s been fantastic to see that the adoption of open source technologies by larger companies has continued to accelerate in recent years. Open source has been around for a while, but why are enterprises using open source more today than before?"

Influence Scales. Control Does Not. - by @barnes_hank
"One of my favorite soundbites from the Gartner Symposium Keynote was “Influence Scales. Control Does Not.” Peter Sondergaard made the statement as a rallying cry to CIOs to not feel threatened by IT spending shifting out of IT into the business. Rather than worrying about controlling IT spend, use influence to make sure that spending, wherever it occurs, delivers value to the business and does not expose it to unacceptable security, risk, privacy, or quality issues. A desire to control creates a bottleneck and frustration."
