Big ERP Systems Integrators Exposed
"It may not quite be time to fire your ERP system integrator, but just recognize that you do have options outside the big incumbents. And, it’s not an either / or proposition: you can get the best of the system integrator and augment with the more strategic and specialized skills sets of others."

Lessons from a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Failure
"In this D365 case study of what not to do, the client’s reseller wasn’t working from a project plan. Clear roles and responsibilities for internal and external resources were never defined or documented. There was no risk register, issues log, or decision criteria. And the client had very little insight into project spend (as the integrator was behind invoicing them), nor did they have a clear understanding of how the estimated costs were trending.

Although this may all sound like basic blocking in tacking, it was missing from this project. And in this case, the integrator wasn’t providing any direction or guidance to their customer."

The Trojan Horse Approach to Organizational Change Management
"Too many organizational change consultants put themselves into a change management box and don’t know how to effectively relate to the other components of digital transformation. They simply get their PROSCI certification, manage activities around “communications,” “awareness,” and other nebulous things, but fail to integrate change into the organization.

Worse yet, these change consultants fail to understand business operations, supply chains, industry trends, company strategies, and other components of integrated change."

Risks of Microsoft Dynamics 365 System Integrators
"Choosing a technical system integrator is an important decision for any digital transformation. But the risks of Microsoft Dynamics 365 system integrators are even greater than for other ERP solutions.

While SAP, Oracle, and other ERP vendors have tightly controlled their ecosystems, Microsoft Dynamics has traditionally taken a hands-off approach to their system integrators. This has led to a high degree of variation in the market and almost too many options to choose from. This can make it difficult for many organizations to select the best Dynamics 365 system integrator."

Event Report - Microsoft Ignite / Envision 2017 - Broad push - few highlights - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Microsoft took an even more notable timeout on the Hololens side. And despite making key announcements that matter to customers (for instance support for Kubernetes, Tensorflow, CloudFoundry), these partnerships were all mentioned in the keynotes but not shown in demos (I may have missed them) or announced in roadmaps. Instead a lot of innovation on Docker came to light, e.g. SQL Server 2017 can run in… a Docker container. The biggest challenge enterprises have with Microsoft is the absence of a holistic PaaS strategy."

Software Vendor Implementation Services Not Always Best Choice - by @fscavo
"Choosing the wrong system will lead to almost certain failure. But choosing the wrong implementation team can also kill project success, even if it is with the right system. And, interestingly, many times your software vendor's professional services team is not the best choice. This post outlines the reasons why."

New Customer-Facing Systems Extend the Reach of Small, Midsize Businesses - via @fscavo
"We recently wrote how cloud systems are leveling the playing field for SMBs in leveraging big data analytics. In the same way, this new generation of customer-facing systems promises to give SMBs the tools they need to compete with larger organizations for customers internationally through multiple channels.

One word of warning is due, however. Because these new systems are built from the ground up, they may not have all the capabilities that SMBs may need to do business internationally. For all the problems with legacy systems, many of them have been developed over many years and have fairly mature functionality, although they typically lack the ease-of-use that this new generation of systems promise."

Microsoft rebrands Dynamics - by @denispombriant
"Microsoft recently rebranded its business software offerings and the effect is largely positive though it must be emphasized that in performing the exercise, deck chairs moved though the cumulative effect remains to be seen."

Microsoft gives Salesforce a shove with new Dynamics 365 integrated cloud platform - by @ron_miller
"That said, R Ray Wang, founder and principal analyst at Constellation Research says there is still room to maneuver in this market. “In the enterprise, Salesforce is winning, but in mid-to-large businesses, Dynamics is still king,” he said. Plus he says he’s seeing some clients shy away from Salesforce because of rising costs. Regardless, Microsoft still has a long way to go before it catches Oracle in third place with 7.8 percent."

Big Changes at Microsoft Dynamics - by @fscavo
"This interpretation is subject to refinement in the coming days, as Microsoft clarifies reporting relationships and field tactics. Nevertheless, we do not see major changes for customers and partners. Microsoft is already encouraging Dynamics partners to sell and support a broader range of Microsoft products, and this reorganization will accelerate that trend. Customers, in turn, may find themselves more often in conversations about Microsoft offerings beyond Dynamics."

Beyond Business Systems to Business Transformation - by @fscavo #microsoft
"increasingly, clients are asking us to help them in a more holistic way. Increasingly, they are not just looking for a new system or for business process improvement. They are looking to see how new technologies can enable new business models, how they should rethink their whole applications portfolio to support changes in their businesses, and how they should redesign or simplify business processes to take advantage of new technologies."
