    CRM is made and operated by companies that are too far detached from the actual user experience. The “leaders” and “visionaries” are, as you say, hocking out the same product and giving it minor updates to appease users.

    The chart needs a lot more players using innovation and design as their weapons. In fact, we need the players, but get rid of the chart.

    Better yet… leave the chart, but make a huge switch so the big players are at the bottom and see what they can come up with to get back on top.
