I’ve made the mistake once again: underestimating an enterprise’s business and process flow while looking at it from a conceptual or logical point of view, before hitting what we call the physical layer. Call me an idiot please, yes you can.
Let me use a few metaphors and make this an easy one to understand. I’ll follow the model above.
My client sells candy. Red, green and blue.

I’m not a very vain man, if at all, but every now and then I Google for “martijn linssen” to see what comes up. I only check the first page, and see how the order is for the first five: those should contain this blog (number one), my Twitter account and my LinkedIn account. Currently [...]

I strongly disagree, although we had a nice conversation. It turned out that @MartijnLinssen I’m an average coder at best, but I like clean code. I’ve made [...]

Notwithstanding the huge progress made – getting conversations in writing and saving them for eternity – it gets increasingly harder to make heads or tails of them. Why favour conversation or thread A over [...]

Today I attended the launch of Tibco’s tibbr in London. A perfectly short and great event of a few hours with excellent food, drinks, very interesting speakers and some great panel remarks – not in that order. Ram Menon, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Marketing presented a very clear overview emphasizing the punch-line: when information [...]

And yes, it is a big wet dream to begin with, for all those self-promoters out there overshadowing the few good and helpful answers that are given on the platform. An ingenious tweet from Olivier Blanchard in a rather long conversation with David Armano pushed me to this post: @armano Quora is almost like a [...]

A tweet by Bertrand Duperrin started this post: @ITSinsider @thecr our decision to RT or not should not be made on agreement but on value for our followers. That was an answer to Susan Scrupski’s opinion on what she deems fit to RT: @TheCR I only RT the tweets of members I think provide great [...]

It’s the most widespread lie across IT. Translated from seller to buyer, it says: just buy our stuff, it’s great, pretty soon everyone will have it and then you’ll have the advantage over all the others. It’s how hypes made it in, trends, useful stuff too, but also ERP and CRM trying to take the [...]
