Google and IBM still trying desperately to move cloud market-share needle | TechCrunch
While becoming cross-platform compatible isn’t exactly a radical notion in general, it most certainly is for a company like IBM, which if it had its druthers and a bit more market share, would probably have been content to maintain the status quo. But if the majority of your customers are pursuing a multi-cloud strategy, it might be a good idea for you to jump on the bandwagon — and that’s precisely what IBM has done by opening up access to Watson across clouds in this fashion.

Where Would We Be Without All of the BullS&%T?
"My questions for the technologists were, “How do you define cognitive?” With hearing this question, most will answer with silence. Only Enterra answers the question with the definition of a semantic inference engine. Instead, most of the solutions are aligning data using machine learning or improving planning models through better use of math. Few are driving innovation to drive autonomous supply chain planning through better management of exceptions (not just showing the exceptions, but giving suggested action)."

Monday’s Musings: Seven Common Failures Plague Board Room Strategy In Digital Transformation
"Laggard market perception cascades failure and customer disillusionment. Declining brands and organizations in laggard industries stripped of brand equity enter an era of negative market perception. Instead of redefining the mission and purpose with new business models, orgs often take a short cut of branding without substance. Seen as devoid of innovation with a commoditized non-differentiated offering, every stakeholder from employee, customer, partner, supplier, and investor lowers expectations of success. The result – leaders who focus on short term gain, declining employee morale, lack of interest by investors, and lower quality from suppliers. Partners lose interest in creating co-innovation and co-creation ecosystems with laggards. Customers no longer find an affinity for a brand that has sold its soul and will not pay for premium pricing when they no longer see value."

Alibaba Cloud growing like gangbusters, but still far behind AWS and other market leaders - by @ron_miller
" Last week Chinese eCommerce giant Alibaba announced its Q3 earnings. Cloud revenue was $553 million, an impressive 104 percent year-over-year increase. That comes out to a run rate in the range of $2.2 billion, well behind Google which announced it is pulling in a billion dollars a quarter and still buried behind the market leaders all of whom reported around $4 billion+ a quarter."

The Strong Shall Inherit the Nasdaq - by @anshublog
"But today, we live in a near utopian economy, at least here in the United States which contributes majority of earnings for many of these tech companies. The unemployment rate is lower than ever in last 10 years, demand is healthy, and everyone has more money than a year ago thanks to tanking gas prices."

Market Move - SAP acquires Callidus - More Sales Effectiveness in the Back Office of the Front Office - by @holgermu
"SAP hasn’t been on the 1B+ acquisition path since 2014, and at the same time is building out its next generation ERP offering with S/4AHANA. SAP seemed to be on an organic build out path of capabilities, so the more (or less) was the surprise that SAP stepped back into acquisition mode, acquiring Dublin, CA based Callidus Cloud (Callidus going forward here) for 2.4B US$."

The Dogshit Bar: A Memorable Market Research Concept - by @kellblog
"So before drilling into all the details that product management can obsess over, step back, and ask some fundamental questions first.

Does the product solve a problem faced by your organization?

How high a priority is that problem? (Perhaps ranked against a list of high-level priorities for the buyer. It’s not enough that it solves a problem, it needs to solve an important problem.)

What would be the economic value of solving that problem? (That is, how much value can this product provide.)"

Ambitious Alibaba takes aim at the kings of cloud computing - by @ron_miller
"Like AWS, Alibaba Cloud began with smaller customers, but as it sets its sights higher in the market, it wants to lure enterprise customers to the platform. The company says that it has proven it can handle the workload from larger customers based on its abilities to handle its own massive e-commerce and financial services businesses."

Ad Blocking Is Now a Chronic But Manageable Condition - via @dahowlett
"The good news: ad blocking rates appear to have flattened — and crucially haven’t yet made the leap to mobile, where most traffic growth is happening. Still, publishers are not exactly in the mood for popping corks of champagne. Besides being beset by a host of challenges– the rise of the Google-Facebook duopoly to an over-dependence on platforms to a depressed digital ad market — ad blocking is still seen as a menace."

Hype Cycle Reminders For Tech Providers - by @barnes_hank
"The Trough of Disillusionment represents opportunity. When I talk to some providers they feel like the trough is a bad time for the market. The reality is this is a sign of needed maturity. Opportunity in the trough comes from switching from talking about what is possible to talking about what is reality."

Sparking a New Conversation: Let’s Build a Network of Networks - by @lcecere
"Not all data needs to fly first class. While many companies speak to us about the need for real-time data, we believe that data needs to move at the “right timing.” Some data needs to move quickly and with high velocity using streaming data architectures, while other data sources can move in batch processes."

Event Report - ADP MOTM - ADP delivers: New UI, Benchmarks, Market Place & More - by @holgermu
"A very good MOTM for ADP, the vendor has delivered what it promised a year ago and now has a competitive product, for the first time I can think of. Good to see ADP is not resting on its product laurels and has more interesting offerings and products coming. Naturally, focus now turns to sales and services, customers need to understand and adopt the new offerings. Too early to tell how well ADP will do here."

When Should You Allow Exclusivity in Deals? - by @msuster
"In summary, many advisors, board members or executives will steer you away from exclusivity agreements. I understand the logic of this because by definition exclusivity restricts your business operations; however, I have seen exclusivity agreements be used to massive success in the marketplace by increasing contract sizes, getting longer-term commitments and getting many soft commitments to help in your success"

In Weakness, There is Strength-Particularly with Influencers - by @barnes_hank
"Our research into the technology buying cycle continues to highlight how important buyers view influencers at all stage of their buying process. Whether an influencer comes from academia, the analyst community, associations, government, or the blogosphere, if customers trust them, then they highly value their advise and insight (Gartner clients-check out research that published recently “Tech Go-to-Market: Trust Drives the B2B Technology Buying Cycle“). Tech providers that ignore, or discount this impact, often struggle to get traction."

Be Wary of Digital Machinists in Your Customer Experience Programs - by @barnes_hank
"In short, the machinist view of the world is all about process optimization. This has long been known (and balanced) in the BPM area where some have said “the only good process is one where we can remove people entirely.” That is sometimes said in jest, but there are many many times when the balance between efficiency or humanism tils heavily to efficiency."

Worst Case Scenario for Technology Buyers – No Decision - by @barnes_hank
"In a recent survey that we did at Gartner, we askedB2B technology buyers for the biggest reasons for “No Decision” – times when they abort a buying process. The top 4 reasons were:

Project and Solution Costs Exceeding Budget
Concerns about the Level of Business or Technical Risk
Concerns about ROI
Lack of Budget"

Delivering the Perfect Demo - by @barnes_hank
"Great demos, as I mentioned in a post a couple of years back, are not about the product–they are about the buyer. A standardized demo does not cut it. For today’s buying approach, I’d suggest that the perfect demo is tailored around two things – the stage of the buying process and the role on the buying team. Its structured improv."

The Sales Shift from Gatekeeper to Expediter - by @barnes_hank
"After thinking about my post last week about respecting the buying process and the feedback I received, my mind started to go in some crazy directions. How can sellers respect the buying process, but still meet their objectives? Waiting for buyers to contact you, particularly if you work for a brand that is not well known, is a recipe for failure. At the same time, contacting at the wrong time doesn’t work either. What can you do."

Tech Buyers Want Vendors to Respect Their Buying Process - by @barnes_hank
Hank pulls from an interesting Gartner buyer study...."The perceived lack of respect for their time and their business hurts everyone. Buyers put up more and more walls to protect their time. They view every contact with skepticism. Its an uphill battle for providers to get back trust and respect."
