Deconstructing the Software Business


The disruption of the IT and software industry by the rapid rise of cloud and SaaS continues to take a toll on the biggest players in the business.

Heating Up the Platform Wars


We’ve seen a rapid progression from conventional software bought through a license to cloud-based solutions that sell for a song — and in theory could sell through barter at some point. I am not a big fan of zero marginal cost economics, in which prices drop to zip because buyers take into account only the cost of the marginal good and not the time, effort, and other resources that went into making it No. 1. That said, the story of economics is ever-declining prices and costs, as product innovations take on ever-larger markets.

The Emergence of Managed IoT Services


With every market forecast predicting rapid growth of the overall Internet of Things, industry and investor focus shifts to specific market segments that will experience the quickest adoption. While most of the attention is on particular applications and technologies, I think managed IoT services will be one of the biggest market opportunities.
