In this informal evening chat taped on on a Google Hangout, Jon Reed of diginomica chats with Frank Scavo of Strativa about services industry disruption. First, the guys dig into "punching above your weight as a services firm" and Frank shares how his firm has been able to have success even against the biggest services firms. The guys then turn their attention to the value of independent advisory on enterprise software projects, and why it matters.

In this very informal evening chat, Jon caught up with the inimitable Dick Hirsch to share what cloudy SAP insights they learned from their meetings and backchannel digging at Sapphire Now and ASUG 2014.

UPDATE: here's the link to slides that go with this audio on slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/jonerp/digging-into-hana-roi-and-biz-case-analysis

In this informal but focused talk, Jon Reed talks through a HANA business case methodology with Tony Guetersloh of TekLink. The guys review how to move beyond HANA "speed hype" to build a project finance use case - informed by process owners. There will be a companion audio slideshare version released with the slides. Jon has no financial relationship with TekLink, this was just for fun because the content was worth a hard look.

In this (very) informal discussion, John Appleby and Jon Reed reflect on their 30 minute blogger conversation with Bill McDermott on the future of SAP and the departure of Vishal Sikka. (Den Howlett blogged about the call, as did John). During the podcast, John and Jon pull out the main themes from the call, and look ahead to the challenges SAP must tackle at ASUG/Sapphire - including cloud, HANA, and the field issues customers are facing, which may not be solved via HANA or cloud talk.

In this frank and informal - and informally taped - presentation at Western Mass Podcamp 2014, Jon Reed conducts an interactive discussion regarding the impact of (free) content and the limitations of social medial without such content. The impromptu title of the session was "Create (free) content that matters - before you do any social media".
