I just completed an extensive e-book for customers and prospective customers, which should be of interest to all senior management teams in all sectors as the content impacts every aspect of individual and corporate performance.

When you find yourself working long hours and buried with critical tasks, perhaps even behind schedule, it might just be the perfect time to spend a day volunteering. We did so this weekend and wanted to share while still fresh. My wife Betsy is participating in an employer-sponsored health management program. Although not new for… Read More

In reflecting on the current workforce, global economy, technology, and labor markets, I revisited the origins of the U.S. Labor Day, which is celebrated on the first Monday in September, similar to the International Worker’s Day on May 1. While the tipping point for political winds appears to have been the Haymarket riot in Chicago… Read More
I just wanted to point to a nice conversion of our Kyield Enterprise description to Strategy Markup Language (StratML); an XML vocabulary and schema for strategic plans. The work was performed without solicitation over the weekend by Owen Ambur, Chair AIIM StratML & Co-Chair Emeritus xml.gov. The human readable version (styled) of Kyield Enterprise in StratML can… Read More

Just a quick note today as I wanted to share a new section of our web site that briefly describes sectors of our economy that our research suggests would be well matched to Kyield enterprise. These ten sectors will be expanded to twelve in the near future with more detail on each, but we’ve had to restrict our published use cases due to the competitive nature of our industry and use of the Web. We will continue to develop specific use cases for clients in each industry to help them understand the functionality, value, and assess needs. Read More
We enjoyed a pleasant surprise this week in the form of a new Forrester report that named Kyield as one of the interviews. The topic and content was certainly appropriate for introducing Kyield to Forrester clients—Future of BI: Top Ten Business Intelligence Predictions for 2012, by Boris Evelson and Anjali Yakkundi with Stephen Powers and Shannon Coyne. –I have reviewed the brief paper, finding that I am in substantial agreement with the direction and predictions so I recommend the product. The accuracy of any prediction is of course dependent upon many variables, however, so I wanted to follow up and share a few additional thoughts. Read More
A very interesting development occurred on the way to the neural network economy: The interests of the software vendor and the customer diverged, circled back and then collided, leaving many executives stunned and confused.
The business model in the early years of software was relatively simple. Whether an individual or enterprise, if the customer didn’t adopt the proprietary standard that provided interoperability, the customer was left behind and couldn’t compete. This was a no brainer—we all adopted. By winning the proprietary standard in any given software segment, market leaders were able to deliver amazing improvements in productivity at relatively low cost while maintaining some of the highest profit margins in the history of business. This model worked remarkably well for a generation, but as is often the case technology evolved more rapidly than business models and incumbent cultures could adapt, so incumbents relied on lock-in tactics to protect the corporation, profit, jobs, and in some cases perhaps national trade…….
