Is Sage obfuscating on cloud revenue?
"There is a lack of detail in Sage results that often frustrates. On the whole the numbers look solid. Yet there are several unanswered questions about its actual performance and strategy. Aaron Harris, appointed in 2019 will deliver his cloud strategy at the end of year. It will be interesting to see how that shifts Sage towards fulfilling its vision. At the moment it is not easy to see whether it is actually heading in the right direction. Again, there was no mention of Sage People, which historically has been one of the fastest growing cloud products for Sage."

Ambiguous price lists are common among vendors, but unlike many other ERP providers, Workday’s list prices can vary per product"

The coming Enterprise Software Hurricane
"In the book, I point out that “tilting the bell curve of customers” to move Bystanders into the Risk Taker and Modernizer categories is SAP’s big short term opportunity. The book has several ideas for SAP to do so. Other on-prem vendors have similar opportunities in their own customer bases. And, whoever does it quickly in their customer base will also have a shot at attracting Risk-takers and Modernizers from other on-prem competitors. However, as these vendors introduce new offerings and messages, SaaS, TPM and other vendors won’t stand still – they will update their own offerings to remain competitive."

Polishing brand ERP
"As an industry, we have implemented or upgraded ERP software tens of millions of times. It is absurd that we tolerate the failure rates and cost overruns that has become synonymous with ERP. Every aspect of ERP was a reason to gouge – close to 100% gross margins on software, ridiculous MPLS circuit and storage pricing, you name it. Offshore vendors who could show CMM Level 5 continuous improvements suddenly forgot that discipline when it came to ERP support. Much of what is delivered by SIs and outsourcers can and should be automated – see several ideas here"

The Costly, Damaging, and Futile Myth of Business & IT Alignment Replacing nonsensical ‘business and IT alignment’ with a newer, better environment
"Now is the ideal time to partition business and IT in such a fashion. The emerging viability of what has been somewhat arbitrarily grouped into ‘digital transformation’ assets (Big Data, Machine Learning, Internet-of-Things and Analytics) can only be successfully adopted by an organization with an efficient and credible foundation of integrated business applications. With business stakeholders firmly at the wheel, such efficiency and credibility are more easily achieved than through an alignment effort that has been a dismal failure since the days of manual typewriters, hi-fis, black & white television, and rotary telephones."

Which CRM Applications Matter Most In 2018
"Marketing analytics continues to be hot for marketing leaders, who now see it as a key business requirement and a source of competitive differentiation. In my opinion and based on discussions with CMOs, interest in marketing analytics is soaring as they are all looking to quantify their team’s contribution to lead generation, pipeline growth, and revenue. I see analytics- and data-driven clarity as the new normal. I believe that knowing how to quantify marketing contributions and performance requires CMOs and their teams to stay on top of the latest marketing, mobile marketing, and predictive customer analytics apps and technologies constantly. The metrics marketers choose today define who they will be tomorrow and in the future."

The Most Important Thing about B2B Personas-Common Ground
"The most important persona-style effort a B2B organization can invest in is the development of an ideal customer profile, something we coined as “The Enterprise Persona.” That profile can, and should include psychographics of the enterprise (among other dimensions)–something that Gartner is helping with via our Enterprise Technology Adoption Profiles. You can build 3 personas in this area. You start with the ideal customer. Then identify deviations from the ideal that would be viable as a good target–the acceptable customer profile. And, finally, identify deviations from ideal that would be a signal that a win, or the ability to make sure the client got value even if you win, would be unlikely–the unacceptable customer profile. Understanding this is most important."
