One response to “The coming Enterprise Software Hurricane”

    The undertone that on-premises is bad and cloud is good does not add-up. Consider new SaaS-cloud business productivity collaboration products such as Slack nearly always publish Android or iPhone apps for personal (on-person) productivity and data collection. In effect closing a feedback loop for cloud analytics and any machine learning. Step this data flow up a notch to IoT, ecommerce or underlying real-time business control systems depends on a distributed system. We can already see this in semi-autonomous cars where the productivity of driving gains a huge lift in productivity. Let’s circle back and recast the coming disruption is vendors adapting to distributed systems computing with trusted product management delivering customer value over probably at least 10 years or shorter time span if vendors can move to multi-party vendor computing. If peel back the covers at Google/Microsoft this is the computing nearly all front business systems R&D is focused on.
