Why Cybersecurity Needs To Focus More On Customer Endpoints
"There are over thirty vendors competing in the endpoint security market right now. A few of the most interesting are Absolute Software, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, and others who are seeing a surge of activity from enterprises based on discussions with CIOs and CISOs. Absolute Software’s Persistence self-healing endpoint security technology is embedded in the firmware of more than 500 million devices and gives CIOs, CISOs and their team’s complete visibility and control over devices and data. Absolute is the leading visibility and control platform that provides enterprises with tamper-proof resilience and protection of all devices, data, and applications."

An Empty Chair…. #scm
"When I was a Gartner analyst in 2001, there were over 120 B2b platforms. Then we termed them trading exchanges. Today, two decades later, only 10% of these initial start-ups survive. With the evolution of VANs, and trading exchanges at the turn of the decade, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) became the workhorse of the industry to move data between companies. (EDI is an electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format; a process that allows one company to send information to another company electronically rather than with paper.) In an ideal state, trading partners work together to drive value in networks."

Undercover: “Independent” ERP Software Selection Firms
"We have stressed this time and time again, but “independent” on paper or promises does not mean your selection firm is truly independent. There are vast mechanisms for vendors, implementation partners and other influencers to create bias within an “independent” firm. The most common is financial, but there are also firms who are simply too lazy to keep up with the changing enterprise technology market and rest on the few vendors they have worked with in the past. This is also very common for smaller shops that were formed by consultants that have moved from the Big 5 consulting space."

A Different Perspective on Differentiation
"Vendors spend all their time focusing on their own differentiation, when, maybe, they should be focused on their ability to help their customers differentiate. Now this is interesting, because I really don’t have a business if I sell to just 1 company. And if I sell to many, differentiating based on my product is not realistic."

The Rebirth of Enterprise Sales
"Customers are leaning on sellers to help them learn about new solutions and make sense of all the information out there. Sellers are as important to them, or even more, as trials, detailed product content, and even independent sources. This is particularly true for the best situations–the high quality deals where customers are succeeding and vendors are in a good position to retain and grow accounts. The customers that deliver high quality deals rely on sales more than those that don’t."

Musings - What enterprises want from their HCM Suites
"The best practices of running payroll when ready and needed are by now archaic. Real-time payroll information has quickly become standard for both employees and managers who want and need to make smart payroll-related decisions. The “always-on” payroll allows better transparency into pay-related information and processes. Benefits for all constituents in the process are tangible, so it’s good to see technology progress—largely powered by cheaper computing in the cloud—enabling these next-level best practices."

Reporting, dashboards, data integration, and advanced visualization are the leading technologies and initiatives strategic to Business Intelligence (BI) today. Cognitive BI (artificial-intelligence-based BI) ranks comparatively lower at 27th among priorities.

Progress Report - ADP Analyst Day 2019 - Ready for Prime Time
"On the concern side, it is now for ADP to show that it not only can build very good and visionary products, but also sell them into the market – to both prospects and the install base. This is always the 2nd step after building product, and with an industry mostly building product (e.g. payroll), ADP is in the lead in terms of maturity and now needs to convert that lead into customers and revenue. ADP will also have to ramp up its partner efforts and move from its largely inhouse implementation to a partner driven model. This allows ADP to keep focusing investment into products."

The state of AI in 2019 - The Verge
"While the phrase “artificial intelligence” is unquestionably, undoubtedly misused, the technology is doing more than ever — for both good and bad. It’s being deployed in health care and warfare; it’s helping people make music and books; it’s scrutinizing your resume, judging your creditworthiness, and tweaking the photos you take on your phone. In short, it’s making decisions that affect your life whether you like it or not."

Smart Machines Are The Future Of Manufacturing
"Capturing IIoT’s full value potential will require more sophisticated integrated approaches than current automation protocols provide. IIoT manufacturing systems are quickly becoming digital manufacturing platforms that integrate ERP, MES, PLM and CRM systems to provide a single unified view of product configurations and support the design-to-manufacturing process."

Seven Things You Need To Know About IIoT In Manufacturing
"IIoT platforms are beginning to replace MES and related applications, including production maintenance, quality, and inventory management, which are a mix of Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) technologies. IoT Analytics is seeing IIoT platforms begin to replace existing industrial software systems that had been created to bridge the IT and OT gaps in manufacturing environments. Their research teams are finding that IIoT Platforms are an adjacent technology to these typical industrial software solutions but are now starting to replace some of them in smart connected factory settings. The following graphic explains how IoT Analytics sees the IIoT influence across the broader industrial landscape."

Sig taught me about Barely Repeatable Processes and how work flows
"There are plenty of ad-hoc processes in any company. They might cover the unplanned issues that happen every day, or they are the company specific things that aren’t covered by the standard package. They might have no system to help at all, or are often supported by data in an Excel spreadsheet being e-mailed around a group of people. These are what Sig calls Barely Repeatable Processes (BRP). They have some rules, but they often need to adapt and change as new circumstances arise. They need information, but it’s often unstructured notes and facts captured on paper or buried in e-mails sitting in someone’s inbox on their PC, tablet or smartphone."

The Rule of 40 — Down, But Not Out!
"I still think the Rule of 40 is a nice way to think about balancing growth vs. profit and Rule of 40 compliant companies still command a disproportionate share of market value. But remember, its explanatory power has dropped in recent years and, if you’re running an early or mid-stage startup, there is very little comparative data available on the Rule of 40 scores of today’s giants when they were at early- or mid-stage scale. That’s why I think early- and mid-stage startups need to think about the Rule of 40 in terms of glideslope planning."

Event Report - Ultimate UltiConnect - More mobile, more Zander and a new tech stack
"On the concern side, Ultimate needs to find the development speed to move all its offerings to a consistent UX. The ‘gamble’ of a mobile only approach may work out, but the next year will have to show if Ultimate can extend the mobile capabilities beyond employee, manager and (some) HR admin capabilities, of will have to go back to fundamental renovation / innovation of the browser UX. A leaner architecture is key, and we will see if Ultimate has the discipline to deliver towards that. That will make it easier to run in hybrid mode, though we would like a vendor not to spend on inhouse data center re-freshs in 2019."

"On the concern side, ADP is to shy to give ADP MOTM attendees the product updates that they deserve. A roller coaster event-based communication strategy like on Liffion and PI does not make sense. The irony is that it usually predicts product issues and delays, and that is not the case for ADP at the moment. When the cat is out of the bag, you need to keep talking about how it is doing, developing etc. One of the big mysteries of my analyst career."

News Analysis - SAP keep - re-organizing - Fox-Martin in charge of ww sales, Enslin out, replaced by Morgan
"SAP’s board organization doesn’t come to peace, and with that stability that is key for execution. Except for Finance, HR and Services – every board area has been changed, re-organized in the course of 6 months. I can’t think of such a board level change happening at SAP … ever. And the next change is already announced, as Kleinemeier stayed an extra year to keep doing the work that Leukert was supposed to take over. Organization need stability on the top, and changes on the top have repercussions many levels down the organization, all the way to middle management changing. In a traditionally stable culture like SAP these changes are especially challenging, as networks have operated over decades, that are now changing. But change can be for the better, so we will have to see what happens."

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.

Our Walk In The Fog
"1) Demand Sensing. Despite a 2-3X increase in demand latency, there is still a strong belief that the order represents market demand. It does not. Companies talk about customer-centric supply chains, but most leaders are more comfortable in the world of supply than demand. While there is much hype on DDMRP and the use of orders as a proxy for demand, companies need to remember that orders carry latency: they are out-of-step with market purchase behavior. The further back in the supply chain that companies find themselves, the greater the order latency, the less that the order reflects market behaviors."

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."

Event Report - Ceridian Insights 2018 - Ceridian is on a roll
"On the concern side, Ceridian needs to push the envelope in the direction of Machine Learning / AI in general and voice as the new UI more. Last year at the user conference the vendor showed the most impressive voice demos of all HCM vendors in 2017 – a worker talking to Alexa (?) for an understanding of their shift situation and executing a shift swap. No demo this year, the vendor citing keynote time reasons… Behind an effective Machine Learning / AI strategy is the move to public cloud, to be able to leverage cheaper compute, spare capacity, low cost storage and overall compute elasticity. And Ceridian says the Dayforce suite runs on public cloud IaaS (I think Azure) but needs to move there for good. When the whole industry is moving to IaaS, it’s time for all vendors to move there to level the field."
