Louis Columbus - cloud in manufacturing, the top 100 cloud-based enterprise software startups of 2015

03 Jun 2015 6:55 AM | Michael O'Neil (Administrator)
I hadn't been to Louis Columbus's excellent blog for a long time, so when I stopped in today, I saw that I was several posts behind in my reading. I thought I'd share the two most recent posts here. 

The first, "Five Ways Cloud Service Providers are Making Manufacturers More Competitive (http://softwarestrategiesblog.com/2015/04/25/five-ways-cloud-service-providers-are-making-manufacturers-more-competitive/) is based on research from Bain & Co., looks at how CSPs are supporting increased agility in manufacturing firms. Inspired by The Phoenix project, I've been writing a whitepaper on the "IT factory" that looks at the parallels between data centers and manufacturing environments, so this post had a particular impact on me - it discusses how data centre-delivered cloud services empower "real" manufacturers! Extra points for pointing out the tie to DevOps, which is at the core of The Phoenix Project, too. 

The second post, "The Top 100 Cloud-Based Enterprise Software Startups of 2015, reports on research co-authored by PwC (represented in TCBC by Matt Ambrose!) and the (US) National Venture Capital Association. (http://softwarestrategiesblog.com/2015/04/04/the-top-100-cloud-based-enterprise-software-startups-of-2015/

In both cases - and typical of Columbus's work - you can get a good sense of the underlying content from the post, or follow links to the source material.

    John Morris: Great catch Michael - this material is very specific and way beyond hype.
