Event Report - ADP Meeting of the Minds - Wisely front and center - and the rest?
"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."

Event Report - Google Next 2019 - Google puts more arrows in the cloud quiver
"Digital Transformation and Verticals are added to the leitmotiv – Not surprisingly with Kurian there was the entry of the three-bullet slide – what matters are the new messages and since Google Next, they are Digital Transformation and Verticals. Both not brand new, from an influence perspective Digital Transformation is already a bit ‘tired’ but to be fair most enterprises have not been digitally transformed. Messaging needs to appeal to the bulk of existing and prospective customers, and this will likely work. Verticals are a new message, but something that the ‘As’ (how Google refers to Amazon and Azure) have woken up to as well. But Kurian brings a SaaS perspective: When I asked him if Google can win in Verticals without SaaS offerings – he smartly replied with the Media industry as an example where Google can play (and traditional ERP vendors have fallen short, as Kurian knows first hand from Oracle)."

News Analysis - IBM Unveils New Offerings for Faster and More Secured Path to Hybrid Cloud
"Great to have a customer quote right at the beginning… would have been more valuable if the CTO of Aetna would refer to the specific services here. And for the PR aficionados: IBM definitively has a new chief press release editor – customer quotes would always come towards the end in the past – with IBM executive and industry analyst quotes. Good to see the change, all that matters are… customers. "

"
IBM ML comes to Swift - IBM has been closely working with Apple on Swift, pretty much since the launch of Apple's new programming language. The joint solutions are built on the platform, and given the IBM push on cognitive / Watson / ML / AI, it's key that developers on the Swift platform that are building applications in and for the IBM ecosystem can leverage IBM AI / ML services for the iOS applications. Something joint customers expected and IBM now has (finally) delivered. I had some good conversations with early adopters."

Progress Report - C3IoT Analyst Day - A unique approach to PaaS needs more adoption - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, C3IoT is a relatively small vendor, with limited resources that must support a large solution footprint and a demanding customer base. Single projects that the C3IoT platform powers typically required a headcount larger than C3IoT’s complete employee base. Truly a David vs a Goliath task scenario, which C3IoT can only solve with scaling know how and 3rd party resources rapidly on its platform."

Event Report - Microsoft Ignite / Envision 2017 - Broad push - few highlights - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Microsoft took an even more notable timeout on the Hololens side. And despite making key announcements that matter to customers (for instance support for Kubernetes, Tensorflow, CloudFoundry), these partnerships were all mentioned in the keynotes but not shown in demos (I may have missed them) or announced in roadmaps. Instead a lot of innovation on Docker came to light, e.g. SQL Server 2017 can run in… a Docker container. The biggest challenge enterprises have with Microsoft is the absence of a holistic PaaS strategy."

Summer 2017 News Analysis - Oracle invests in IaaS (or at least CAPEX) - by @holgermu
"You can’t build out a cloud in the real world without massive CAPEX investment. Look at the AWS / Amazon, Microsoft Azure and Google numbers. On the flip side Oracle execs are smart enough to not throw good money after bad money – e.g. put CAPEX $s in a non-working cloud infrastructure. So, at any chance given to me since 2014 I asked CEO Mark Hurd – when will Oracle spend more CAPEX? The answer has always been evasive… But at its OpenWorld conference, Oracle unveiled the 2nd generation of its IaaS solution. It now seems to get the CAPEX it needs to get real."

Summer 2017 News Analysis - Microsoft makes Azure Stack available - by @holgermu
"
Why it matters: Despite the trend to cloud there are still many enterprises that have to operate enterprise automation on premises. Look at the number of SAP customers opting to run S/4HANA on premises. Microsoft now offers a path for them to run Azure similar / identical products – and build and move applications and load to an Azure like on premises stack – with the option to move it later. And there are plenty of motivated hardware vendors that want to sell more servers to customers for their local data centers (Cisco, Dell, HP etc etc.)"

Event Report - Salesforce TrailheaDX - AI, Events and more - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, Salesforce is the only vendor that maintains two complete application platforms with Force and Heroku. Granted, this is less an issue for Salesforce in 2017 than it was eg. in 2012, as the vendor has grown to an impressive scale. But still R&D, marketing, sales etc. efforts go towards to platforms. And both platforms aren’t brand new in 2017, so neither will be the future platform for SaaS / PaaS. Those thoughts have to happen at Salesforce and will likely result in the emergence of a third platform in the coming year."

Progress Report - Unit4 Analyst Summit - New Achitecture and Deep Verticals - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Unit4 has its hands full. New platform, Business World On almost completely on it, new acquisitions to integrate and a new value proposition for customers. The good news for customers is that Unit4 is almost out the tunnel… It would be well advised to find a more aggressive go to market in North America in regards of its ERP products. More competition is good for customers and markets. And modern offerings are only modern … for so long."

Event Report - Cloud Foundry CF Summit 2017 - Microsoft joins the kingdom - by @holgermu
"Microsoft joins the kingdom, SAP makes mark – Last year I referred to Cloud Foundry as the ‘King of PaaS’ – due to the lack of competition, most prominently in regards of the platform’s uptake by industry players that in another era would have built their own platform. And certainly not adopted an open source project. So, along the analogy, Cloud Foundry sees Microsoft joining the kingdom. While all partners are important, Microsoft is almost the last data point (Oracle is the last major player still standing out – formally) to join. Microsoft is a key win for CloudFoundry due to the vendor’s long history as development tool, platform product vendor and of course as owner of the Windows franchise. It also helps Microsoft as it gives its customers a (lower level) PaaS as go to location. Coupled with the expanded SAP presence and keynote by CTO Goerke it gives CloudFoundry more chops, most importantly adding two more cloud platforms with Azure and the SAP Cloud."

Progress Report - Hortonworks ploughs on - seeds BigData - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, HDF has not shown reasonable acceptable market adoption – at least that’s the interpretation since Hortonworks shared … no numbers on adoption. It’s going to be key for Hortonworks to get some traction, otherwise the return of R&D will be suboptimal for customers. On the brighter side HDP is doing well in the market, the IBM partnership will help further. It’s a departure from Hortonworks ‘open source only’ mantra, but reflects market realities and opportunities."

The conference was very well attended with over 1000 attendees, and almost 30 influencers. The show floor saw a wide range of partners – including – as it’s in the time of the marketplace – coopetitors. A good sign for customers."

News Analysis - Unit4 releases Wanda bot; the first true self-driving ERP user experience - by @holgermu
"Always good to see innovation. Bots like Wanda are changing the user experience of ERP radically and lastingly, probably forever. Once voice and chat work as a user interaction, there is no way back for a user. Interesting enough it will create a temporary stickiness of ERP applications from the user side – who don’t want to go back to keyboard and old screens, logins etc."

The conference was well attended with over 6000 attendees, a new record for Red Hat.
