Kellblog Predictions for 2019
"6. Ethics make a comeback, for two reasons. The first will be as a backlash to the blatant corruption of the current administration. To wit: the House recently passed a measure requiring annual ethics training for its members. The second will have to do with AI and automation. The Trolley Problem, once a theoretical exercise in ethics, is now all too real with self-driving cars. Consider this data, based on MIT research in this article which shows preferences for sparing various characters in the event of a crash."

Event Report - Kronos KronosWorks 2018 - Kronos is firing on all cylinders...
"On the concern side, Kronos needs to accelerate on the AI side, it is relatively late with Aimee and it needs to come up with a voice driven UI, which is key for end users. That is all not too far away for Kronos, but it needs to happen. Moving from Workforce Management to HCM means that vendors cannot hide under the complexity and compliance blanket but must show some style and appeal to motivate users… and we are not even talking Talent Management here. Kronos also needs to get their buying center to step up inside the HR buying center, quite a change for the current Kronos supporters."

The Costly, Damaging, and Futile Myth of Business & IT Alignment Replacing nonsensical ‘business and IT alignment’ with a newer, better environment
"Now is the ideal time to partition business and IT in such a fashion. The emerging viability of what has been somewhat arbitrarily grouped into ‘digital transformation’ assets (Big Data, Machine Learning, Internet-of-Things and Analytics) can only be successfully adopted by an organization with an efficient and credible foundation of integrated business applications. With business stakeholders firmly at the wheel, such efficiency and credibility are more easily achieved than through an alignment effort that has been a dismal failure since the days of manual typewriters, hi-fis, black & white television, and rotary telephones."

Which CRM Applications Matter Most In 2018
"Marketing analytics continues to be hot for marketing leaders, who now see it as a key business requirement and a source of competitive differentiation. In my opinion and based on discussions with CMOs, interest in marketing analytics is soaring as they are all looking to quantify their team’s contribution to lead generation, pipeline growth, and revenue. I see analytics- and data-driven clarity as the new normal. I believe that knowing how to quantify marketing contributions and performance requires CMOs and their teams to stay on top of the latest marketing, mobile marketing, and predictive customer analytics apps and technologies constantly. The metrics marketers choose today define who they will be tomorrow and in the future."

The Most Important Thing about B2B Personas-Common Ground
"The most important persona-style effort a B2B organization can invest in is the development of an ideal customer profile, something we coined as “The Enterprise Persona.” That profile can, and should include psychographics of the enterprise (among other dimensions)–something that Gartner is helping with via our Enterprise Technology Adoption Profiles. You can build 3 personas in this area. You start with the ideal customer. Then identify deviations from the ideal that would be viable as a good target–the acceptable customer profile. And, finally, identify deviations from ideal that would be a signal that a win, or the ability to make sure the client got value even if you win, would be unlikely–the unacceptable customer profile. Understanding this is most important."

Oracles streak of missed opportunities
"But even within its peer group, Oracle has missed out on several opportunities. It took way too long to deliver Fusion. Even then, it could have stalled growth at Workday, Salesforce, Adobe and other cloud vendors. It could have delivered a knockout punch to SAP starting around 2010 with its early start with Fusion and its many cloud acquisitions. It could have taken several of its vertical industry capabilities to the cloud and gone after SAP in those markets. It did not and SAP with S/4 and its own cloud acquisitions has weathered the storm."

10 Ways To Improve Cloud ERP With AI And Machine Learning
"Cloud ERP platforms need to create and strengthen a self-learning knowledge system that orchestrates AI and machine learning from the shop floor to the top floor and across supplier networks. Having a cloud-based infrastructure that integrates core ERP Web Services, apps, and real-time monitoring to deliver a steady stream of data to AI and machine learning algorithms accelerates how quickly the entire system learns. The Cloud ERP platform integration roadmap needs to include APIs and Web Services to connect with the many suppliers and buyer systems outside the walls of a manufacturer while integrating with legacy ERP systems to aggregate and analyze the decades of data they have generated."

Nothing permanent about Oracle-Rimini
"But…..Oracle could have solved this years ago by offering a similar service. Most Rimini customers I talk to were not just attracted by the lower price (they had to balance the viability risk that came with a small vendor being sued). They did like the fact that Rimini supports their customizations. They love the fact that their ticket volumes have GONE UP. Yes, they got tired of raising tickets with Oracle (or SAP) because they tell me they rarely got resolved so they quit raising them. They like the dedicated rep model they get with Rimini. Oracle usually tells them the quality of their product is more secure, more trusted etc. It was a quality of service, as much as product and an economic decision for many customers."

Tis the season for software lawsuits
"I want to see how Teradata attorneys can succinctly explain arcane optimization algorithms to a jury. Also how they refute SAP’s considerable prior art when it comes to analytics – their three tier architecture in R/3 which allowed it to support multiple databases and understand how users access certain fields more than others , Business Warehouse going back to 1997, its Business Objects acquisition in 2007 and its Sybase acquisition in 2010 and many other elements. In The New Polymath, in 2010 I had written about work at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Pottsdam which I believe was the genesis for what became HANA. Not saying one side has more merit than the other, but it will mean looking at a lot of documentation to say who developed what and when before the other did."
