Now, the world is demanding a new way to develop software to keep pace with the pace of disruption. The greatest poster child for the brave new world of software-driven business is General Electric. In response to the changing needs of its customers and to fend off growing competition, GE is shifting its operations rapidly to a software-defined business.

The Salesforce Health Cloud


Salesforce is opening a can of snakes with its new Health Cloud, which became generally available this week. I’ve seen the healthcare industry up close recently as aging parents and in-laws make greater use of the system. My overall impression is that CRM could learn a great deal from healthcare providers about how to treat customers. Understanding how professionals provision healthcare is a lesson in understanding moments of truth. At the same time though, healthcare seems constrained by its software.

The traditional smartphone flagship is sinking, but don’t count it out just yet

Smartphones are getting cheaper all the time. Sales of high-end $700 or $800 flagships are generally declining. More people are bypassing carriers and buying directly from OEMs, or picking up unlocked devices from online retailers. Could we be looking at the end of the traditional, expensive flagship phone? Can Samsung, LG, or even Apple keep asking us to pay big bucks for their latest offerings?

Just Showing Up Won't Capture Federal Cloud Business


The observation that “80 percent of life is just showing up,” generally attributed to comedian Woody Allen, has morphed into the admonition that “80 percent of success is just showing up.” However, it appears that vendors who just show up with a generalized approach to marketing cloud technology to federal government agencies likely won’t attract much business. As the market evolves, vendors will need to be responsive not only to various agency mission requirements, but also to the unique procurement practices of the federal government.
