Patent on Lead Management

One of the innovations I was working on the last few years was a better way of getting sales leads to resellers. Rather than pushing them out and hoping somebody will follow up, I developed a pull methodology where Partners can pull them from a pool to make sure that the lead will have a […]

OpenSource 2.0 — Monetizing success

Many people think about OpenSource and where it goes and so do I. One comment stroke me in particular at one of the recent conferences where somebody stated that OpenSource is good for lot of things but there is no TRUE innovation. “OpenSource projects today are pretty much improving what others did before – but […]

The Enterprise Software Chasm

The SaaS Summit in Napa Valley this past week was a very interesting and well organized event by OpSource. I’m sure Amy Wohl and others will cover it and you may also want to read http://boassobusiness.blogspot.com/. Rather than providing redundant viewpoints, I’d like to comment on 1 particular topic: I call it “The Enterprise Software […]

2006 Enterprise Software Summit

Enterprise Software will experience dramatic changes ahead. SaaS is the primary driver for those change. It is not the new delivery model, but three key elements: Benchmarking, User Experience and Reach and Cost & Efficiency advantages.

Executive Blogging

Currently about 100,000 blogs are created every day in accordance to a recent article in Forbes. Yet it still feels like something for freaky insiders. But that may change soon. Executive Blogging (as I call it) may soon be a preferred way for executives to stay in touch with their community of customers, prospects, investors, […]

Innovation

Innovation has always fascinated me – it is something that keeps me going. There is one particular aspect about “innovation” that keeps thinking: the difference between Innovation and Improvement (making great things better). Innovators don’t think about  improving an existing solution. Innovation is about understanding a problem from a high level and then diving deep […]
