FSN ~ BI, BPM & CPM ~ Why second time around software entrepreneurs are worth listening to!

Over last few years I have had the privilege of interviewing the founders of some of the most vibrant, innovative and rapidly growing software houses in the business. These are the ones attracting tens of millions of venture capital funding, that are doubling their staff rosters, that are reaching out globally and are disrupting the status quo. And behind each of these phenomenal success stories is a second time around entrepreneur – somebody (sometimes more than one) that won their fame and fortune the first time around but are driven to do even better this time.
Pierre Castelain's insight:

The article stresses that CPM softwares such as Anaplan benefit from the past successful experience of their founders.

Five criteria for choosing a solution for strategic financial planning.
Pierre Castelain's insight:

I 100% agree that the first criteria for selecting a strategic financial planning tool is owning a solution that can be self-managed by finance users so they can build and maintain models themselves. This is a promise Anaplan holds way more than its competitors.

Pierre Castelain's insight:

La définition du e-leader de Nils Fonstad me parait pertinente: c'est un leader sui sait créer de la valeur en s’appuyant à la fois sur les personnes et sur la technologie.

En effet les entreprises qui s’équipent en nouvelles technologies pour innover et conquérir de nouveaux marchés ont besoin de dirigeants «IT savvy» pour retirer le maximum de valeur de leurs investissements IT.

The MIT and Capgemini Consultling share views on that strategic imperative.
