Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Belated Comments On Workday’s 2-27-2017 Earnings Call

[This should have been written and published in early March, but that’s when our kitchen remodel project went into what’s called demolition, and life at Bloom & Wallace has been pretty disrupted ever since. It’s going to be gorgeous when finished, but first we have to survive the process. And I can tell you from […]

SaaS Economics, Competitive Moats, And Interrogatory Configuration

[You may also enjoy my “Firing Line with Bill Kutik” episode on this.]

There’s been a lot of discussion across the enterprise IT and financial analyst community about the long term economic viability of the SaaS business model. And the enterprise IT community continues to debate the merits of the various flavors of SaaS architectural […]

If You Don’t Ask The Right Qs, You Get The Answers You Deserve!

To get maximum value from attending #HRTechConf and/or #HRTechWorld, prepare your questions carefully and gather different points of view on possible answers. Be an investigative journalist in order to get useful answers to your important questions.

Introduction

It’s conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re not going to be “Trumped” during […]

Women In Tech, ‘Firing Line’, And Naomi’s World

And We Still Need A “Village!”

Some of you may know that I started my professional career in 1967 as a programmer trainee at then John Hancock Life Insurance in Boston. I was part of a trainee class that was made up primarily of new grads from Ivy League universities with degrees in such […]

Home Remodeling, Moving To SaaS, And Life Lessons

Familiar Vendor Is NO Excuse For Short-Cutting Due Diligence!

In the last year, I’ve relearned a valuable lesson in vendor research, short-listing, evaluation, selection and management, and it’s been a very painful, expensive, and embarrassing lesson for someone who should have known better. Yes, there’s no fool like an old fool, especially when we […]

Grand Passion Is Essential To Both Great Wine And Enterprise Software

Hunter Valley, Australia

Ron and I spent mid-Feb to mid-March 2016 traveling in New Zealand and Australia, spending most of our time visiting with much-loved friends in both countries who we see far less often than we’d like. Although we have tons of modern ways to keep in touch, there’s just no substitute for […]

Workday’s 2015 Tech Summit: What Hasn’t Been Reported Widely Enough

There’s been a ton of great coverage out of Workday’s 2015 Tech Summit, a preliminary list of which I’ve included below and to which I’ll add as others bring their coverage to my attention. But having attended this well-run event and after reading the coverage below and more, I was struck by how little […]

Reprise: A Great Miracle Happened Here!

Chanukah 2015 HR Tech Wishes For 2016

Take Your Chances, Win Some Gelt

Have you ever played the Chanukah game of spin the dreidel? With or without the modified rules derived from “spin the bottle?” Did you know that the four letters, one on each side of the dreidel, make up a phrase that […]

Prepare Your Questions For #HRTechWorld and #HRTechConf

If you don’t ask the right questions, you sure as hell won’t get useful answers!

It’s HR technology conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re going to get the maximum value from our time spent at these conferences. That means knowing what questions we’re trying to answer before we’re bombarded with […]

In Enterprise Software And Luxury Accommodations, Details Matter And No Disappointments Accepted

St. Mawes, the quintessential south Cornish coast village.

Ron and I have been spending a lovely holiday in England, treating ourselves to very high end accommodations in London and the Cotswolds, and now on the south coast of Cornwall. We’ve been having a wonderful time, including visits with friends, lots of theater in London, […]
