Won’t Get Fooled Again: The 5 Worst Buzzwords in the CRM Industry Today » The TEC Blog
Today Filed Under ( TechnoBabble , Industry Observation ) by David Clark  ( see bio )   Going through our article archives , I stumbled across Glen Petersen’s excellent article A Lexicon for CRM Success .

An internationally recognized speaker, writer, practitioner, and thought leader in the CRM and e-business

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane » The TEC Blog
Insane Filed Under ( TechnoBabble ) by TEC Staff  ( see bio ) , Jacqueline Snider   Acronyms seem really convenient, at first. It’s great using ERP instead of enterprise resource planning, for example. You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right? Well, for ERP this may be true, but all acronyms are not as tidy as they appear. What about BPM, for example? Does it stand for business process

This article is part of the continuing education all software demonstrators need to ensure their fundamental skills remain sharp. It points out three common “crimes” made in demonstrations, how to recognize them, and suggests alternative approaches.

TECHNOBABBLE: excited about your software. Technobabble Software demonstrators are the masters of technobabble. We speak in meaningless computer jargon. Those of us in the software industry don t realize how much confusing jargon we throw at a prospect. Every industry has it, but none more so than the computer and software industry. If you think it impresses your prospect to spew this industry garbage, you re sorely mistaken. Assume you re about to spend the day demonstrating your order entry system to a prospect. In

How to Buy an Enterprise Software Thingy » The TEC Blog
Thingy Filed Under ( TechnoBabble ) by David Clark  ( see bio )   Laws a’mercy, now that’s what you call a flame war. The White Paper Pundit has taken direct aim at our Top 10 Most Ambiguous White Paper Buzzwords , decrying our use of the word “tool” to refer to so-called software “solutions.” I won’t address his characterization of TEC bloggers as “fashionably unique.” (Software selection? Fashionable? Whatever. Can’t wait for the catwalk.) I’ll just point out that TEC’s

Taming the SOA Beast – Part 1 » The TEC Blog
1 Filed Under ( TechnoBabble , Industry Observation ) by P.J. Jakovljevic  ( see bio )   Certainly, I admit to not being a programmer or a techie expert (not to use somewhat derogatory words like “geek” or “nerd”) per se. Still, my engineering background and years of experience as a functional consultant should suffice for understanding the advantages and possible perils of service oriented architecture (SOA). On one hand, SOA’s advantages of flexibility (agility), components’ reusability

1 Filed Under ( TechnoBabble , Industry Observation ) by P.J. Jakovljevic  ( see bio )   It doesn’t take an exceptional industry analyst or market observer to realize that SAP HANA has become one of the pillars of SAP ’s future strategy (possibly even a “bet the farm” move).
