Sam Lawrence, formerly of Jive Software and Enterprise Octopus, most recently Blackbox Republic is baaaack. Big Time. Sorry. I mean Go Big Always. This time (actually a month ago) he is presenting the Magik Quadrant from a customer prospective. (Should it not be the Magik Kvadrant?) There you have it. But I can’t steal his […]

SAP’s acquisition target was said to be a head-scratcher. Sybase certainly makes you cock your head a tad.

Information technology projects in the state and federal government tend to be large, complicated, and expensive. Effective collaboration and cross-boundary communication are key drivers of success for these large projects. Certain programs mandated by the government, such as electronic medical records and health information exchange, are particularly susceptible to failure induced by poor communication and […]

Just in case you didn’t get the memo, and following yesterday’s post about the new business realities for industry analysts, I thought it was worth talking to a convergence RedMonk has long championed, and how it affects my sector.

I was excited to see this video around the Microsoft Office and Sharepoint 2010 launch from the NBC Saturday Night Live studio. Not so much around the tactical feature discussions and demos but to see Mark Mastrianni talk about how it fits within GE’s larger goals (that section starts around minute 16, and goes through […]

I spent all of about one hour trying to psych myself into writing a post about all the great things SAP could accomplish with their $6B acquisition of Sybase, and then I woke up. The deal just simply makes no sense, and as fellow Enterprise Irregular Vinnie Mirchandani said: I wish SAP had not done this. […]

My new HTC Incredible phone has a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor in it. That’s faster than laptop computers were just a few years ago. That, and reading the US Air Force story (you have to wait for that a little longer…) reminded me of an interesting conversation with Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu two years ago: Given […]

Image via Wikipedia If SAP holds to its recent suggestions that it may make material acquisitions from a technology perspective, how should customers respond once deals are announced and proceed into the early days of integration? I’d argue very conservatively. Procurement should play a key role in negotiating any changes in contract terms, licensing, maintenance, […]
