The B2B Technology Buying Conundrum - by @barnes_hank
"These dichotomies create a conundrum. An environment that seems optimized for the buyer isn’t. And decisions take longer and longer. Indecision is more common, to the point of organizations sticking with the status quo much longer than they would like."

The Many Uses of Product Reviews - by @barnes_hank
"This is a missed opportunity. Reviews can be a great resource for vendors. Savvy vendors are aggressively leveraging reviews to:

Grab quotes and anecdotes for Web sites and marketing collateral
Provide a supplement to more traditional forms of references
Provide visibility into strengths and weaknesses to refine product plans
Understand the motivations, and frustrations, of customers around the entire experience (and thereby used to enhance implementation and service capabilities)
Deepen competitive understanding
Explore acquisition targets"

Introducing "The Super User (R)evolution" Unleashing the Collaborative Forces Already in Your Enterprise
"The "Initial Super Users" Era: In the late 90's and early aughts, it was recognized that companies would do better to assign internal end users to provide guidance to other end users at least for the training for the initial go-live. Sometimes this role was made more permanent, thus extending beyond go-live but such extended roles were seldom formalized or respected and usually simply petered out for lack of management support and respect."

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."

Event Report - #GoogleNext17 - Google makes progress - but is it fast enough? - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, it is not clear if this will be enough, I asked the Greene leadership team on what they will do to catchup from ‘Bronze to Gold’ and they all came up with good and plausible answers (check out my Storify of the analyst event here). But in a year where we may see VMware running on AWS and Oracle making its cloud work first time – this may not be enough for Google to get on premises load of scale. So it all comes back to the speed of Google being able to attract enterprise load for the next few years, and the speed of the enterprise moving to cloud."

And payroll is crucial to get right for enterprises small and large. A bad payroll run derails equally all work at an enterprise of any size. So expanding payroll footprint should be a priority for Zenefits."

Their brand is only as good as the user experience of their product
User centered design leads to higher ROI."

Event Report - Informatica World 2015 - Product Progress and New Approaches - by @holgermu
"It also looks that Informatica – at least for the attendees I spoke to – has been able to dissolve potential concerns around being taken private by a Private Equity player recently. It was good for Abbasi to tackle the subject directly in the keynote, but Informatica still has to share where the investment going forward is going to be, using the usual argument of being able to transform the company without the quarterly reporting pressures.

Progress Report - Cornerstone innovates with Analytics, PaaS and Learning, but needs to watch the basics - by @holgermu
"On the concern side the choice of a proprietary programming language with Shelby will not woe over developers, but Cornerstone is not going after the all-purpose PaaS market, but the extension of its ecosystem and customization market. There success of CornerstoneEdge will stand and fall with the capabilities that enable and end user to develop (ideally) with no coding."

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."

First Take - Apple wants to change the Future of Work. Partners with cloud apps vendors and Workato - by @holgermu
"The way how, when, and what we work is a key research area for us at Constellation Research, that we call ‘Future of Work’ (FoW). As such we track the events in the industry that may affect the FoW – and one key player in the space are technology vendors, e.g. Apple given the pervasiveness of iOS powered devices in the enterprise and its popularity with today’s workers."

Event Report - Oracle HCM World - Full Steam ahead, a Learning surprise and potential growth challenges - by @holgermu
"A good event for Oracle customers and the vendor, who keeps showing traction in HCM. Oracle believes, as Hurd shared that when you have the ‘foot in the door’ with HCM in the cloud – the rest of the enterprises will follow. As much as we agree that the ‘golden rule’ of enterprise software that ‘suites always win’ should remain true for the cloud era, we also know that the PeopleSoft history (on premise of course) has shown us differently."

First Take - Oracle HCM World Thursday Keynote - off to a good start - by @holgermu #hcmworld
"Oracle committed to HCM – from top down – Similar like last year Mark Hurd opened the event, which is a good sign showing the top executives are committed to keep up the HCM momentum. To compare – other vendors in the big, big category (SAP, Microsoft) have not shown the same presence – or not even formulated their HCM strategy. "

Killer app or shelfware? It depends on the user experience delivered - by @joemckendrick
"For the most part, IT leaders understand that user experience (UX) can make the difference whether an application or service becomes core to the business, or if it becomes more shelfware. However, UX thinking seems to be few and far between."
