The year’s biggest consumer technology show wrapped in Las Vegas earlier this month, and just like the best digital products are always evolving, so is CES.

We’re on the Edge a Software Boom. We Owe It to the Digital Products, Not Just the Productivity They Create.
Last week’s article in The Wall Street Journal, “If the Economy Booms, Thank Software,” highlights the rapid shift towards software investment to spur business growth. The article focuses mainly on productivity as the driver of this growth. In doing so, it misses the point that the software itself is now the product – the company’s… Read more »
Upon returning from CES last year, I declared IoT dead. When smart razors and connected breast pumps litter the showroom floor, I think it’s safe to say that connected devices just aren’t all that unique anymore. The connected buzz is gone.

We have hired a top-notch team to collaborate with our clients, and we have earned accolades in everything from being named a top service provider in Forrester’s 2018… Read more »
I recently wrote on my blog – and spoke at Outsell DataMoney – about data becoming a commodity in the digital economy, just as oil was in the Industrial Revolution. I mentioned in that talk at DataMoney that while the commodity is of some value, it’s the ecosystem around the commodity and the things that… Read more »
CIOs today face a daunting challenge. The vast majority of them are failing to be leaders in technological innovation within their companies. For years, analysts have warned of the CIO’s coming demise. Gartner claims that within five years marketing departments will outspend technology departments on information technology. According to a 2012 survey of technology leaders in… Read more »
