Den scored a conversation with Matt Steiner, newly minted head of product at Neptune (diginomica partner) for his take as a partner with SAP at TechEd 2019
Our personal take on the show
Den listens to Brandon Toombs as he sets out his expectations and wishlist for the upcoming SAP SuccessConnect 2019 event.
There's a lot of talk about payroll.
In this entertaining conversation, Den and Jarret chew the fat about how the SuccessFactors implementation landscape remains something of a Wild West. Bonus points for listening all the way through - and we could have gone on a LOT longer. Extra bonus points for Jarret's tips on using LinkedIn to create a large network of interested practitioners in the field.
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.
While working at Dell Boomi, Rick Nucci, co-founder Boomi and now CEO Guru found that internal sharing systems didn't work. Guru attempts to solve this problem.
Phil took the opportunity to record a conversation with Rick while at a Slack event so this one has the added bonus of being set to music.
Diginomica Episode #65 - Den in conversation with Rachel Happe on the results of the 10th annual CR Survey
Rachel Happe and Den get into a wide-ranging discussion covering the results of the 10th annual Community Roundtable and some of the big issues that community leaders are addressing. Everything from measurement difficulty through to holding raitonal business conversations and on to diversity and the problems of those who are disempowered feature in this near hour long conversation.
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.
There's plenty to like about this deal but we don't ignore the larger market impact, what it means for SAP and BOBJ or Microsoft Power BI and Google.
