Fellow Enterprise Irregular, blogger and IT/finance consultant Dennis Howlett offers a guest post on the state of business application software, connecting the dots between Erasure, Last.fm, social media, attention, Paris Hilton, James Governor, Jeff Nolan, Oracle, SAP, Freshbooks, thingamy, Eternal Recurrence, Sage, Infor, Larry Ellison and Marc Benioff.
In the meantime, I wonder if Oracle’s marketing department is thinking of gaming Ms. Hilton’s assets. After all, ringmaster Larry Ellison has gone awfully quiet of late. The business apps business could do with a new comedian showperson on whom we could lavish attention. I’m tired of Marc Benioff’s hyperbole. And in any event, the idea that Oracle could game Ms Hilton with a one-liner like: ‘Great ass gets a great ride with Oracle seems almost appropriate.
Thingamy gets a wee mention. Nice one, Den.
