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."

IBM’s 2018 Data Breach Study Shows Why We’re In A Zero Trust World Now
"The report is a quick read and the data provided is fascinating. One can’t help but reflect on how legacy security technologies designed to protect digital businesses decades ago isn’t keeping up with the scale, speed and sophistication of today’s breach attempts. The most common threat surface attacked is compromised privileged credential access. 81% of all breaches exploit identity according to an excellent study from Centrify and Dow Jones Customer Intelligence, CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity (31 pp, PDF, opt-in)."

Oracle’s database service offerings could be its last best hope for cloud success
"Salesforce exec Keith Block (who was promoted to Co-CEO just yesterday), worked at Oracle for 20 years before joining Salesforce in 2013. In an interview with TechCrunch in 2016, when asked specifically about the differences between Oracle and Salesforce, he contrasted the two company’s approaches and the challenges a company like Oracle, born and raised in the open prem world, faces as it shifts to the cloud. It takes more than a change in platform, he said."

Slack won the first Group Messaging war
"It’s not clear yet what this and their last acquisition (Missions, a workflow app) means for the Slack developer ecosystem. Atlassian products were already favored in their app store promotion, and they will probably get some additional benefits in the partnership. Similar to the first move Slack made to compete against Microsoft in how it partnered with Google and made it easier to work with Google Office in Slack."

Musings - Enterprise Acceleration - and what every HR Leader should know about it
"3. 21st century learning. CxOs need to have a conversation about modernizing their learning systems to the needs of the 21st century workforce. This means that learning content has to be pervasive, can be self-created, and can be self-curated and consumed at the space of the modern workforce. Too much learning happens at the wrong time in the wrong place, and the speed of forgetting newly learnt information and capabilities is killing any speed an enterprise was planning to pick up from the training / learning in the first place."

Three Ways Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing Zero Trust Security
"Zero Trust Security provides digital businesses with the security strategy they need to keep growing by scaling across each new perimeter and endpoint created as a result of growth. ZTS in the context of Next-Gen Access is built on four main pillars: (1) verify the user, (2) validate their device, (3) limit access and privilege, and (4) learn and adapt. The fourth pillar heavily relies on machine learning to discover risky user behavior and apply for conditional access without impacting user experience by looking for contextual and behavior patterns in access data."

Adobe CTO leads company’s broad AI bet
"It’s actually a classic software platform play, whether the service involves AI or not. Every cloud company from Box to Salesforce has been exposing their services for years, letting developers take advantage of their expertise so they can concentrate on their core knowledge. They don’t have to worry about building something like storage or security from scratch because they can grab those features from a platform that has built-in expertise and provides a way to easily incorporate it into applications.

The difference here is that it involves Adobe’s core functions, so it may be intelligent auto cropping and smart tagging in Adobe Experience Manager or AI-fueled visual stock search in Creative Cloud. These are features that are essential to the Adobe software experience, which the company is packaging as an API and delivering to developers to use in their own software."

Still, it’s fair to say that most companies aren’t that far along yet."

SAPs new ERP pricing model: Quick analysis
" In addition to Trust, I wish this team had also been given Realism as a target. As I pointed out in my recent note on Uptake, value in software has been moving away from transaction processing to intelligence and analytics. Not sure the exchange/conversion values reflect the fact that ERP functionality pricing should have steadily declined over the last few decades. In a world where machines are doing more of the work at the front end of so many processes, improving quality of data etc. why should you continue to pay for (often duplicative) work by your ERP system at the back end of that process at the same rate you did a while ago?"
