One response to “Enterprise software and the curse of vendor sameness”

    Hello Michael,

    Your approach captured my attention. As a former “engineer” I’m put off by marketing language (even the word cloud is starting to rub me oh so wrong), but I think you’re only reinforcing it here by using Wordle. It is designed to strip away any differences which do exist: the associated use-cases, diagrams, or datasheets which have the opportunity to reveal differentiation. Also, the very established market of ERP has “understood” goals, a vocabulary if you will, and people will read those sections where they have problems to solve. Great concept and I would like to see it applied elsewhere. Thanks for sharing.
