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 […]

Workday’s 8/24/2016 Earnings Call — Non-Financial Thoughts

There’s been some great coverage of their latest earnings call, to include from Dennis Howlett at Diginomica and Larry Dignan at ZDNet (and please do point me to other high quality coverage). Now I’m neither a financial or IT analyst, but I do think there are a few items from that earnings call which deserve […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Modest Rant — No HCM Pain/Rethink/Disruption, Then Little Business Gain

Don’t Even Think About Getting Innovation Without Disruption

[This post evolved from my Twitter reactions to a range of marketing messages and advertorials which make it sound as though their current on-premise customers, as well as the on-premise customers of other vendors, could get all the benefits of business innovation enabled by next generation […]

Modest Rant — HCM SaaS Economics — One More Time!

With a huge shout-out to Brian Sommer from whose wonderful blog post I “borrowed” this graphic.

[The impetus for this post, first published 2-21-2015, was some absolute nonsense online which sort of equated SaaS to “cloud” (and faux “cloud” at that), then suggested that, while customers might save a little in the short run […]

A Great Miracle Happened Here! — Chanukah 2014 Wishes For HR Tech in 2015

The Elegant Dreidel I Always Wanted

Take Your Chances, Win Some Gelt

Have you ever played the Chanukah game of spin the dreidel? Did you know that the four letters, one on each side of the dreidel, make up a phrase that translates to “a great miracle happened here.”

Chanukah celebrates the miracle […]

Reprise 2014: SAP, SAP, Wherefore Art Thou SAP?

SAP Founders 1988 — Klaus Tschira On The Left

[The first version of this post was published May 25th, 2013 during the run-up to SAPPHIRE NOW 2013 and very shortly after SAP announced Lars Dalgaard’s departure and Vishal Sikka’s increased responsibilities — and very important responsibilities they were. Now here we are, nearly […]
