September to November brings many enterprise events – Oracle OpenWorld, Workday Rising, Salesforce Dreamforce and others. I am looking forward, this year, to updates on core ERP, HCM and CRM functionality, but also hope to hear more around:
a) Use cases around emerging technologies
Sure there will be plenty of talk around Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. I am hoping to see customer use cases and plans to productize apps in these areas
b) Vertical functionality
Hope to see more specific feature sets aimed at specific industries not just presentations on “plans”
With my new book, Silicon Collar, I have a heightened interest around automation, so hope to hear from vendors about business processes they have delivered standout automation around. From their partners I hope to see concrete steps to automate their own labor intensive operations, not just talk about what they can do for clients.
Should be an exciting season. Look forward to seeing you at some of these events either in person or on social media.
