CPQ: Boost Selling Performance and Accuracy

They say it can take a product idea 10 years to go from concept to mass-market appeal but that might be only an optimist’s viewpoint. Some of the best ideas in CRM right now have been marinating for at least that long — and some for much longer. Two great examples are analytics and CPQ, which companies like Oracle, Salesforce and others have embraced with passion. Interestingly, each technology has traversed a path that needed other technologies to become fully mature. “Analytics” is an old term for what we now call “machine learning.”

Supreme Court to End Samsung, Apple Patent Brawl

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from Samsung regarding its patent dispute with Apple. The case stems from a 2011 lawsuit by Apple that alleged Samsung copied certain design elements and features from the iPhone and iPad and used them in Samsung Galaxy phones and tablet computers. A jury in 2012 awarded $1 billion to Apple, finding that Samsung had used some of Apple’s tap-to-zoom technology. The award was later reduced. The companies reached a partial agreement in December.

Uber Loses Crucial California Court Battle

Uber on Tuesday filed an appeal of a California Labor Commission ruling that is widely viewed as a threat to the company’s business model. The ruling resulted from a claim filed by a San Francisco driver against Uber last year. Details of the earlier action emerged when Uber moved to appeal the commission’s decision handed down in March. The commission found that the plaintiff was an employee of Uber rather than an independent contractor, as the company had maintained. It ordered payment of $4,152 in reimbursable expenses and interest.

Supreme Court Turns Deaf Ear to Google's Street View Appeal

The Supreme Court has declined Google’s appeal of a lower-court ruling in a class-action lawsuit that alleges it violated federal wiretap laws with its Street View cars. The court left in place a decision the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down in September. The appeals court declined to dismiss the case, ruling that Google was not exempt from liability under the federal Wiretap Act after it inadvertently gathered usernames, passwords, emails, and other information from private WiFi networks while collecting data for Street View.

Can Ivy Ross Make Google Glass Haute Couture?

Google Glass, whose appeal so far seems limited to uber-geeks, may be taking on a new image, thanks to Google’s hiring of Ivy Ross, known for her work at Calvin Klein, Coach, Gap and, most recently, Art.com, where she was CMO. Ross will assume her new post as head of Google Glass May 19. “I look forward to answering the seemingly simple, but truly audacious questions Glass poses,” Ross wrote in a post on Google+. “Can technology be something that frees us up and keeps us in the moment, rather than taking us out of it?
