Ain't A New Thing....But
Great lunch with +Phil Buckley today. He sold me +PrecisionLender and I'm not a banker. We disagree on one thing. Phil sees entry into CRM space by Hubspot as no big thing.
I think it is a HUGE thing and may be an even bigger opportunity for team at @Scoop.itsince few have experience in what it will take to manage MASSIVE data sets controlled by nested algorithms in near real time.
Email marketer such as Bronto have that experience so do large social nets. At http://www.Curagami.com we see an interesting A BOMB about to explode possibly disrupting the moribund CRM space and actually creating publishing tools that would eliminate the need for the content publishing and curation roulette we play now.
Interesting times. This link outlines a lunch conversation with Phil Buckley. Phil took the "no big thing" stance. In the short run he is right. In the long run maybe not.
