Many of you may wonder why I would title a post “Dynamics 365 vs. SharePoint”, as though it were an either/or decision. But many customers, particularly in the SMB space, seem to grapple with “deciding” between the two. Pliers and the Screw If I worked at it long enough, I could probably remove a screw with a pair of pliers. Granted, a screwdriver would clearly do a much better job, but what if a screwdriver cost way more than a pair of pliers? I might be tempted to stick with the pliers. I know that by using pliers, removing a screw will take me about 20 minutes, and a screwdriver would take seconds, but I count my pennies. The time that me and my team spend using pliers for this? Hmm, yes, I guess there is that. Reaching in the Toolbox I am trying very hard to avoid the cliché of “Using the Right Tool for the Job” here, but it is unavoidable. I am assuming, and t... (more)

Dynamics 365 – Pivoting Sales for Account Based Marketing

The other day I wrote a post about Account Based Marketing “ABM”. This was prompted by a short blog post I read on ABM, and it resonated with me as a pretty cool idea. I received a lot of responses from people “in the know”, and I quickly realized that this was not some “fringe concept”. After three days of reading up, I am even more convinced that this is worth a serious look. Bone Up There are quite a few great resources on what this approach is, and why it makes sense.

Are you ready for the transition from Hardware-Centric to Software-Centric?

Forceworks Are you ready for the transition from Hardware-Centric to Software-Centric? Do you ever talk to an “Old” IT person? You know, like 40ish. Man, do they have some stories about how IT used to be back in the day. Things sure have changed a lot. You probably think to yourself “Man, they have no idea how things are now”. How about a “Middle-Aged” IT person? You know like 30ish. They have stories too, and things have changed a lot since then as well. You may be thinking “That guy is really losing touch”. It seems to come in waves… change that is. Well another wave is crashin... (more)

Damn you Microsoft!!!

I can hear it, can you? A popular podcaster, Jason Calacanis has advised companies in the past to be wary of launching a technology product on top of someone else’s platform. Many great Facebook and Twitter apps have simply been knocked off by the platforms, and subsequently knocked right out of business. Calacanis himself fell victim as his business at the time was largely dependent on YouTube, and while Google did not knock off his content, they simply made a change to the search which orphaned his content… same result. And now here we have Microsoft. Talk about being dependen... (more)
