Dan Aldridge's insight:

"Ask yourself this question. If Elon Musk could improve battery technology so he could get the price down and increase the range of a Tesla, would you ever buy a gasoline-powered car again? Maybe not.”

I for one can’t wait to get my hands on a beautiful, fast as hell, virtually maintenance free vehicle running on juice from my home outlets or free charging stations. And bonus – it’s basically zero emissions, and I want to be green!

 

Imagine how many big corporations would be on their heels if us little ole middle-class consumers had a Tesla Model S as a viable choice in our price range. BAM!


Oh wait, according to Techcrunch the new Tesla Model S 70D may be just  what I want. Mommy, Daddy’s going car shopping.

  

 

“Even if I never buy a Tesla or fly in a Space X rocket, I’ll always cheer for Elon Musk as he continues to take on the heavyweights of business and government. Like Ali, Musk is truly shocking the world.”

How Amazon Crushed Big Competitors (And You Can Too) | I Love Enterprise Software | Scoop.it
Amazon is currently a $95 Billion in revenue company with over $250 Billion in market cap. Does anybody remember when Amazon just sold books? Not long ago, brick and mortar retailers like Borders and JC Penney dominated the U.S. economy. Now with mobile devices and online platforms, innovative startups are conquering their fear and slaying established giants with increasing speed. Why?I believe the secret lies in the philosophy of Malcolm Gladwell’s book David and Goliath. The book has been an inspiration to me as an entrepreneur, both professionally and personally. My goal wi

Infor LN and Baan hold huge storehouses of financial data. The problem in the past has been that getting real-time financial statements with “drill down” capabilities out of the system has been difficult. Fortunately, in LN you can now design and build many financial reports using the new Financial Statements module. This new module has drill down and export capability directly to display sessions and Excel.


Infor LN Financial Statements can be run in real time at any point during the month. The detailed financial statement account, GL trial balance with 12 dimensions and finalized transaction data can be exported right to Excel. Then you can run the reports you’ve been dreaming of, such as product line profitability, departmental expense reports by financial company, full P&L and balance sheets by plant and so on right out of LN.


Baan and Infor LN users can learn what is available directly out of LN and Baan. Hear from Baan & LN Consultants who have help dozens of clients implement the latest versions of Infor LN and Baan.

You are invited to a free Webinar on Infor LN/Baan Financial Reporting, BI and Dashboards. In this 60-minute session you will learn how non-technical and technical people can quickly and easily create reports and financial statement exports to Excel.
