Burning Down the (Messaging) House
"Why is that? Messaging Documents/Houses are consistently:

Narcissistic. They reflect what vendors want people to hear, but rarely provide the context as to why they should care.
Undifferentiated. They have so many messages, without any comparative quality, that it is hard to find what really matters. Even the top level messages suffer from this.
Forgettable. Again, the volume of messages “information’ in these documents is overwhelming. By the time you get to the end, it’s hard to remember anything (see “undifferentiated”).
Ignored. They usually get created around an ‘event’ (e.g. new product). And after a burst of energy, are quickly ignored (see “forgettable”). I’ve yet to find anyone who audits materials against their messaging documents. I’m pretty sure I know what the results would be."

Pluralsight will acquire GitPrime for $170M | TechCrunch
"GitPrime is a great exemplar of a whole class of companies that are waiting to get built: domain-specific business intelligence (BI) tools. And it’s gotten radically easier to build something like GitPrime even in the last year. You can use an automated data pipeline like Fivetran (my company) to centralize all your users data in a single multi-tenant Snowflake data warehouse, and then build your analytics on top of that foundation. Finally, you can sell direct access to the curated data via data sharing as an enterprise feature.

It’s a highly repeatable pattern. There should be a GitPrime for every industry. " -
