Kellblog Predictions for 2018 - by @kellblog
"The war on facts and expertise will continue to escalate. Read The Death of Expertise for more. This will extend to a war on college. While an attempted opening salvo on graduate student tuition waivers didn’t fire, in an environment where the President’s son says, “we’ll take $200,000 of your money; in exchange we’ll train your children to hate our country,” you can expect ongoing attacks on post-secondary education. This spells trouble for Silicon Valley, where a large number of founders and entrepreneurs are former grad students as well as immigrants (which is a whole different area of potential trouble)."

Why has Standalone Cloud BI been such a Tough Slog? - by @kellblog
"Just as RDBMS themselves failed to deliver information democracy with SQL (which, believe it or not, was part of the original pitch — end users could write SQL to answer their own queries!), BI tools — while they helped enable analysts — largely failed to help Joe User. They weren’t easy enough to use. They lacked information discovery. They lacked, importantly, easy-yet-powerful visualization."

"Tomorrow, as more marketers will be measured on the health of the overall ARR pool, they will be focused on cost-effectively generating not just opportunities-that-close but opportunities that turn into the best long-term customers. (This quadrant helps you do just that.)"

A Year After IPO, Aaron Levie’s Box Is Showing Signs of Growing Up
"What’s missing? SAP, he says, referring to the German business software giant best known for its software used by large companies to run their operation soup-to-nuts, a market segment known as Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP. “If there’s one thing that’s missing here, it’s an ERP company. I don’t have a way to get ERP documents into Box.” The same is true of Oracle, another ERP player. “We want to work with everybody.”
