DSEI: Meet the military fast attack boat that sails itself

If you have seen a Navy SEAL movie or TV show, then you’ve definitely seen a RIB – Rigid Inflatable Boat – used on “missions” where they rapidly insert from a warship to land and execute a secret, intense mission.

Blockchain: CRM's Next Frontier


We’ve seen a parade of technologies coming into the front office since 2000, including browser-based cloud computing, social media, mobile technology, workflow, journey mapping, and big data and analytics. It’s typical that at first there’s only a tenuous relationship between the technology and CRM’s original mission, but over a short time innovators adopt and commercialize the innovation — often by rethinking business processes that leverage the technology’s attributes. I think the next invasion of CRM will be blockchain technology.

Amazon Echo vs. Google Home in a virtual standoff

For decades, we have seen people talk to computers in science fiction movies. Dave spoke to HAL. Michael Knight was assisted by KITT. Captain Picard directed “Computer.” The computers were smart and personable, and they (usually) did what they were told.

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.

That said, the story of economics is ever-declining prices and costs, as product innovations take on ever-larger markets.
