If Software Is A Commodity...Then What?


Many, if not most categories of software have become commodities. Vendors hate to hear it, but most of the products in a category produce the same results, pretty much in the same way. If this is true, how do user select the right vendor? How does a vendor get selected?

What CRM Should Have Taught IT (although not getting the message is not entirely IT's fault)


IT hasn't properly supported CRM because it hasn't understood either its importance or its requirements. The advent of CRM exacerbated a serious, pre-existing condition, rather than CRM creating the condition. Bottom line-gathering business requirements for technology support should no longer be IT's problem. It's up to business to gather and communicate business requirements for technology support.

That's the opposite of the current state—business trying to live with what IT wants to provide, and IT able to control what it has to provide by controlling the requirements gathering process. So IT still only gets half a loaf. PS: Not to forget, business still has to learn how to gather its own requirements. But that's Read More
