The “Gentler” Giant’s Value Proposition to Overcome the “Little Guys’” Perception


Since its launch less than a year ago, Oracle’s VAD Remarketer Program has been quite successful in recruiting new value-added distributors worldwide. But the real challenges that remain for this software giant have more to do with its image within the market than with its products.

Do You Want Your App to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 3


In Part 1 of this blog series I admitted to being a late adopter of a sort, in part for not immediately jumping onto the social media bandwagon. In particular, my initial reaction to Salesforce Chatter (a.k.a. Collaboration Cloud) was tepid when it was introduced at the Dreamforce 2009 conference. However, a few months have passed and this period has helped salesforce.com craft the much clearer

Microsoft Convergence 2003 portrayed an Enterprise Solutions crossroad!


Microsoft Convergence 2003 provided a perfect learning experience to appreciate the overall Microsoft Business solutions and the directions that Microsoft intends to take. To that end the word 'convergence' was not an element of pure fate but rather a portrayal of integration between Microsoft back and front office applications. The only discordance with this depiction we felt was the way Microsoft plans to enhance its product definition through a large number of independent software vendors (ISV).
