Why big consulting needs to buy into BPO to address the As-a-Service Economy - by @pfersht
"Simply put, it’s a huge, huge challenge for most current services relationships to morph into anything closely resembling an As-a-Service model, with the current mindsets of most buyside and sellside delivery staff. Buyers need deep expertise to help them reorient their skills and capabilities – and their service providers need to make serious investments and sacrifices to help them, which give their accountants and shareholders hives."

Converting your app to the cloud can be really, really hard - by @davidlinthicum
"Most applications, whether serving a single enterprise or an industry, have been built as multiuser (not multitenant) systems. They don’t focus on managing the allocation of resources on the platform -- which is essential in the cloud's multitenant architecture. (You also have new security models, new governance models, and usage-based accounting and monitoring.)"

Progress Report - Oracle Cloud makes progress - but key work remains in the cellar - by @holgermu
"No questions Oracle is making a lot of progress with its cloud products. And Oracle is doing a great job at making them leverage each other (I would love to see the dependency diagrams) – while making sure they have a standalone business benefit as a singular product. Oracle is also more granular than other vendors with an enterprise software or hardware background moving to the cloud, but Oracle has to make sure the offerings don’t get too complex and remain easy to understand, market and sell, later implement and operate."

Infor: On a Mission to Go the Last Mile - by @erp_cindyjutras
Some deep content from Ms. Jutras..."The investment that Infor has been making over the past few years is now coming together and producing some pretty dramatic results. Its verticalized CloudSuites have been emerging on the scene. This of course is an on-going process, but expect more (functionality), and expect more vertical focus. New ways of engaging with ERP are being introduced. They are both efficient and visually appealing. These suites look nothing like the old software of yesterday. This is a new Infor."

Workdaytime for a fork? - by @dealarchitect
rare to see a post digging into Workday's challenges in the public domain... "Some customers are starting to call Workday “PeopleSoft updated for the cloud”. The PeopleSoft footprint of the enterprise in the 90s was relatively small, and the enterprise has grown so much bigger since with digital marketing, far more automated shop floor, smart product R&D, predictive asset maintenance. telematics in insurance, mobile banking, omni-channel retail, smart cities with sensors everywhere and so much more. There is significant fatigue with the current crop of “strategic” tech vendors, and Workday could well move into that vacuum, but not with its current small footprint."

Plex Systems Takes a Page From Manufacturer’s Play Book - by @erp_cindyjutras
"Continuous improvement has long been the mantra for many manufacturers. Kaizen and other formal programs like Lean, Six Sigma, and Total Quality Management (TQM) have dominated the manufacturing scene for years. But what about the world of enterprise software for manufacturing? Not so much."

Advantage SaaS: Game, Set, Match - by @dealarchitect
"But Josh is focusing on the implementation project, not the life cycle. The major difference between SaaS and on-premise is SaaS takes over hosting, apps management and upgrades which multiple service providers did in the on-premise world. That’s huge. "

Business and Technology Predictions for the Year 2020 - by @erickimberling
"A man by the name of Dennis Gabor once said, ?We cannot predict the future, but we can invent it.? In the ERP industry we have the ability to look at data collected over the last several years to see where trends are shaping the future of enterprise resource planning. "

Implementing Enterprise SaaS: If it’s Easy, it’s Because You’re Not Trying - by @josheac
"Back in the early stages of the SaaS market, so many months ago, it seemed obvious that the SaaS market would one day undergo a major transformation as the easy wins based on taking on-premise capabilities and flipping them to the cloud – pretty much the business model of Salesforce.com in the early days– gave way to an era of greater complexity and value."

The 2015 Progressive F&A BPO Blueprint - by @pfersht
"Almost two years to the day since we launched our first Blueprint Report, we finally circle back to the core horizontal services function at the core of BPO and shared services: finance and accounting. For our 20th Blueprint, authored by analysts Phil Fersht and Hema Santosh, we deliberately focused on the proven “progressive” skills, investments, domain acumen and as-a-service potential of the leading providers in finance and accounting service delivery."

Modest Rant — HCM SaaS Economics - by @infullbloomus
"Unless your organization is operating in the same environment as it did 20+ years ago, doing pretty much the same things within pretty much the same competitive landscape (and this is true for NO ONE), then the cost of technology-enabled innovation should be the focus of any cost comparison between on-premise or faux SaaS/”cloud” and true SaaS."

S/4HANA: What's the impact on HR? - by @lukemarson
"In short, there are not a host of changes for HR customers. The focus of S/4HANA is firmly on the ERP and Financials area, with added functionality for HR coming from existing HCM solutions. A simplified data model and planned packaged integrations are going to make it easier for Employee Central customers to integrate with S/4HANA, but SAP ERP HCM customers are going to have to build their own integrations or consider a migration to SuccessFactors Employee Central."

The Silver Lining for CIOs in HR’s Cloud Challenges - by @cbcurran
"CIOs have been cut out of the cloud equation, but it’s not too late for them to get back into the game and help HR executives shape their cloud strategies, determine how it integrates with the rest of the IT portfolio and make sure efforts are effectively resourced and scoped."

That Super-Successful VP of Sales. Great? Or Just Lucky? - by @jasonlk
"I get sent this resume to review all the time. Director+ of Sales at Yammer / Salesforce / Successfactors / Pick Your Brand Name SaaS Company. Took Hot Start-Up from $0 to $30m as VPS from Day 0. Was there “early” through IPO and did amazing things. That all sounds impressive, for sure. But was she great? Or just lucky?"
