There is a change a-coming as more enterprises turn to a build rather than buy mode of operation - sometimes including back office functions for which you'd think there's plenty of COTS choice. We discuss this topic with Frank Scavo, CEO Strativa/Computer Economics.
In this candid conversation, Mike Fauscette, who heads G2's data analysis unit talks methodologies and what buyers are looking for in data-driven buying decisions.
My good friend Abesh Battacharjee talks about the genesis of a project designed to support Bloodmates, a non-profit in India that is trying to make access to blood much easier than it is today.

Diginomica Episode #64 - Den in conversation with Mico Yuk and Clive Boulton re: Salesforce acquiring Tableau
This week, Salesforce announced it is acquiring Tableau for an eye-popping $15bn. That was a 42% premium on the previous close. The deal is expected to close Q3 2019.

The Coherence Economy is a new topic for me. Mulesoft has been talking about this for just over a year and in this recording, Phil Wainewright digs into the topic with Uri Sarid, CTO Mulesoft.
As a teaser, Sarid had this to say last year:
An economic revolution occurs not when an innovation becomes possible, but when it becomes practical. We’re on the verge of a new economy.
This week I met with Rose Hayes, VP at JLL. We had a wide-ranging conversation about the impact of change and how Workfront is facilitating fresh approaches to processes within the firm.

Anyone who has created content knows its hard work so imagine our chagrin to find that DynamicsFocus is stealing our and other publishers' content. Here's the story and this is the site.
And here's Stuart's opinion about the person in question:
Well, I got a reply from our content thief. It's not an apology, Opens with "Hey Jackass", goes on to complain about "badgering" about "the stupid articles". Not a shred of repentance, just that he'll take the"stupid articles" down. @alexscroxton @bryanglick @ldignan @bobevansIT
