Event Report - Ultimate UltiConnect - More mobile, more Zander and a new tech stack
"On the concern side, Ultimate needs to find the development speed to move all its offerings to a consistent UX. The ‘gamble’ of a mobile only approach may work out, but the next year will have to show if Ultimate can extend the mobile capabilities beyond employee, manager and (some) HR admin capabilities, of will have to go back to fundamental renovation / innovation of the browser UX. A leaner architecture is key, and we will see if Ultimate has the discipline to deliver towards that. That will make it easier to run in hybrid mode, though we would like a vendor not to spend on inhouse data center re-freshs in 2019."

How Edge Computing Will Deliver on the Promise of 5G
"That’s because it’s not meant for us. Like most technological advancements, industry will come first. The promise of 5G is in swarms of drones and fleets of autonomous vehicles. It’s in lightweight industrial wearables that process crucial information rapidly. It’s in robots. And, yes, it’s in the augmented reality game we’ve all been waiting for, “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.”

This promise of 5G will be most likely delivered on the edge, taking it from conference marketing to real-world feasibility. In fact, 4G can already deliver a 5G-like experience with edge computing."

Event Report - NetSuite SuiteWorld 2018 - NetSuite goes Global and Oracle
"On the concern side, NetSuite may not be moving fast enough yet. It needs to move to 30, then 50 supported countries fast, to e.g. counter and lead vis a vis other large ERP vendors SMB products (starts with an S…). And while I always like when vendors go back and fix something (the Commerce offering), it does not make sense for NetSuite to play in the space, while e.g. not having a full HCM Suite, no clear CRM strategy , some holes in SCM and so on. So, NetSuite not only needs to move fast, but also smart, which the vendor is doing on most aspects, but needs to do more. For instance, NetSuite needs to announce the next 10 or better 20 target countries for its Globalization / Localization plans, so customers can plan their roll outs accordingly."

We had the opportunity to attend IBM's Think conference held in Las Vegas, all o...
IBM ML comes to Swift - IBM has been closely working with Apple on Swift, pretty much since the launch of Apple's new programming language. The joint solutions are built on the platform, and given the IBM push on cognitive / Watson / ML / AI, it's key that developers on the Swift platform that are building applications in and for the IBM ecosystem can leverage IBM AI / ML services for the iOS applications. Something joint customers expected and IBM now has (finally) delivered. I had some good conversations with early adopters."

Musings - Time to bring back the software user conference - by @holgermu
"Subject Expertise beats Celebrity. Yes, user conferences are also about inspiration. But a shows star, soap operate protagonist or a talk show host - is not something an enterprise software user can relate to for their work and why they spend 3-4 days and a few thousand budget dollars / euros to come to a conference. Vendors show offer subject matters, if push comes to shove from the user base. There is instant validation, trust and respect from a user to another user presenting. There is direct bonding of being in the same boat and sharing experiences from that. No celebrity can do that. Glamour effects don't last."

Event Report - ADP rethink - Great event and a lot in the making - by @holgermu

Google’s Enterprise Ambitions – Google Cloud Next ’17 Report - by @krishnan
"I have long been advocating that Google’s path to relevance in the cloud is through Machine Learning and AI. I heard the same from various enterprise customers in this conference. One of Google’s strengths is in big data and, with the announcements related to Machine Learning, they are positioning themselves as the go-to cloud for ML workloads. Google’s machine learning engine and Google Vision API is now generally available."

Event Report - #GoogleNext17 - Google makes progress - but is it fast enough? - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, it is not clear if this will be enough, I asked the Greene leadership team on what they will do to catchup from ‘Bronze to Gold’ and they all came up with good and plausible answers (check out my Storify of the analyst event here). But in a year where we may see VMware running on AWS and Oracle making its cloud work first time – this may not be enough for Google to get on premises load of scale. So it all comes back to the speed of Google being able to attract enterprise load for the next few years, and the speed of the enterprise moving to cloud."

MIT’s New AI Data Extraction System Teaches Itself by Surfing the Web
"The new system could be a boon to accelerating research tasks that may have required more tedious, manual effort from humans previously. Not only would a system like this save time, it could also save lives: the researchers foresee that such a system could be used by healthcare providers, as a tool for aggregating patient histories under a more unified structure, which would improve the quality of care that a patient receives."

Event Report - Zenefits Z2 event - Good start for the very SMB - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, Zenefits has lost some time to restart its offering. In the meantime, the competition has not stood still, and has equally simplified its products (e.g. Paychex) or extended its footprint (e.g. partner Gusto). And payroll is crucial to get right for enterprises small and large. A bad payroll run derails equally all work at an enterprise of any size. So expanding payroll footprint should be a priority for Zenefits."

Barclays doing Digital differently - by @dt
"The Brighton Lab provides a home for business advisors, brokers, web site designers, and businesses creating new apps and digital services. It hosts 2 permanent offices with 4 staff in each, has 2 meeting spaces for hire or use by the members, a maker space, and the main area supports 25 co-workers. They’ve linked to the local maker community and provide a hub for emerging technology in the local community. Compared to their peers, Barclays are thinking differently, and doing digital differently."

If You Don’t Ask The Right Qs, You Get The Answers You Deserve! - by @infullbloomus #hr
"Unfortunately, it usually takes a broader planning effort to make sure that sir/madam HR leader isn’t playing that loser’s game of whack-a-mole in resolving these types of questions. You know that game: no sooner do you put one question to rest than two more rear their ugly heads, and soon you’re entangled, not unlike Gulliver, by a hairball of these issues."

"Attend as many sessions as possible. I do because, at least when there’s NO sales crap allowed, they’re generally excellent. Come prepared to be an active listener, to take notes, to provide a twitterstream for your colleagues who couldn’t attend in person, and to boo any speaker who dares to give you a sales pitch or to trash their competitors."

What Spotify Learned From the Flop of its App Store
"Or better yet, what happened after the app platform stumble? And did their change to “speeding through failure” actually work? Frödin told us they built a Web API, which enabled them to “build a lot of interesting stuff for our users and internally,” as the API enables them to have a lot of flexibility for rapid change."

Event Report- Alteryx Inspire 2016 - Enabling change agents in data management - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Alteryx must master these technology shifts, needs to start thinking of moving the tooling to the cloud and not missing the trend to enable the business end user (with no / limited data know how) as the next user category which will change how enterprises work with data.

But for now there are only very few alternatives to Alteryx when looking for a data prep, data automation solution in the enterprise, good to see IT departments taking, note too. Stay tuned."

Then we are adding enterprise social networks like Jive, or extra collaboration tools like Slack. The digital workplace is getting more complex"

Envisioning Envision: Microsoft is once again at a crossroads…maybe - by @pgreenbe
"Different. That’s probably the best way to, umm, envision Envision; and — to be fair — do it with a clear lens. To set the stage, I’m going to tell you something that I rarely say. I’m not entirely sure what I think about this conference, as a conference “reviewer” and I’m not entirely sure as an analyst what I think about Microsoft’s thinking. This is not a position I’m normally in. But when this is done, you’ll understand why I say that."

Adobe doubles down, but it can’t just stay in Vegas - by @pgreenbe
"The point is, it’s always all about storytelling and the company that has the best story to tell – and – pause for dramatic flourish here – and tells it best – wins. When it comes to the marketing cloud – especially in the consumer-side business world – Adobe may have the best story to tell. Does that mean they have the best marketing cloud? I’m not saying that. I’m not judging things at that level – yet."

Everyone’s talking Digital and it’s Dangerous - by @dt
"Everyone’s talking digital – either disruption or transformation and it’s dangerous. Plenty of books with digital in the title and that’s dangerous. Plenty of events around the digital topic and that’s dangerous too. It’s dangerous because this is too important a topic to be diluted by being overhyped. We’re actually talking about business survival in a World where the only constant is change, and that change is accelerating. So where are we at and what can you do to make sense of the hype?"

Event Report - MongoDB keeps up the momentum in product and go to market - by @holgermu
"A very good user conference for MongoDB, that is growing well in both product and go to market capabilities. Given some executive changes, including the CEO, quite a remarkable outcome, not many startups come out strong after management changes. On the product side there has been more continuity with Horowitz at the helm and MongoDB is looking for more scale and growth of its subscription sales potential. By pointing to the popular visualization area, the vendor very likely is betting on a winner."

"It also looks that Informatica – at least for the attendees I spoke to – has been able to dissolve potential concerns around being taken private by a Private Equity player recently. It was good for Abbasi to tackle the subject directly in the keynote, but Informatica still has to share where the investment going forward is going to be, using the usual argument of being able to transform the company without the quarterly reporting pressures.

There success of CornerstoneEdge will stand and fall with the capabilities that enable and end user to develop (ideally) with no coding."

Event Report - Oracle HCM World - Full Steam ahead, a Learning surprise and potential growth challenges - by @holgermu
"A good event for Oracle customers and the vendor, who keeps showing traction in HCM. Oracle believes, as Hurd shared that when you have the ‘foot in the door’ with HCM in the cloud – the rest of the enterprises will follow. As much as we agree that the ‘golden rule’ of enterprise software that ‘suites always win’ should remain true for the cloud era, we also know that the PeopleSoft history (on premise of course) has shown us differently."

To compare – other vendors in the big, big category (SAP, Microsoft) have not shown the same presence – or not even formulated their HCM strategy. "

What is Digital Transformation? - by @dt
"What I do know is that your business model is under threat. Some smarter, nimbler competitor is just about to overtake you with a more innovative approach, or better use of data or clever use of technology and take your market. Business as usual almost certainly won’t be good enough, although it may take a while for you and your balance sheet to realise that."
