  • Manufacturing the Cloud: Fore!

    Yes, it’s that time of the year again – The Masters is over and the golf courses are starting to get busy again. Depending where you live of course, the golf courses may be open year-round: but that would spoil my storyline… Being from Scotland originally, I started golfing when I was around 6 and a couple of years later became a junior member of the golf course where my dad played: Hilton Park just a bit north of Glasgow. One of the things that I like best about golf is the concept of it being ...

  • 2012 IT Services Survey: Startling Links Between Data and Financial Performance

    We surveyed 300 managers at IT services and software companies in the UK, US and Australia to map out where they see opportunities for growth and efficiency in 2012. The results blew us away. Early this year we released the results of an ambitious survey we commissioned from an independent agency (Loudhouse Research) into the inner workings at IT services and software companies; the report was called "Managing Growth: A review of the global software & IT services industry".

  • Implementing at the “Speed of Cloud”

    When I started out at NetSuite, I was faced with a daily grind of educating CFOs on the virtues of running their business in the cloud.  In those days, the conversations quickly moved to the issue surrounding data security and it took a particularly forward-thinking CFO to take the leap of faith.  I have since met many of those that did, and as they reflect on those decisions, most acknowledged that it was the first step in a complete business transformation towards cloud computing. Fa...

  • The Shared Vision of NetSuite and A Billion + Change

    The saying "money isn't everything" rings true in so many ways—even when it comes to corporate citizenship. That's why NetSuite.org was created in 2008—to put our product and our people to work on behalf of charities and social enterprises. For four years, we have matched worthy nonprofit organizations with talented NetSuite employees willing to provide pro bono assistance.

  • Manufacturing the Cloud: The Scheduling Myth

  • Channels’ Choice – The NetSuite Cloud

    One of the things I like best about working with channel partners is that they are not zealots. They make decisions that are best for the success of their business and their clients' business. Successful partners go where the demand is.

  • Where Do Microsoft Great Plains Users Want to Go Today? To the Cloud.

    Remember the old Microsoft ad slogan, “Where do you want to go today?” If that question was asked of Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) users, you would hear the answer: “To the Cloud!” Great Plains users are fed up with business inefficiency, poor visibility and ongoing maintenance, integration and upgrade issues with Microsoft’s on-premise software. They are migrating to NetSuite, the world’s leading cloud ERP system, and you can hear why at theTuesday, July 24 webinar, “Why It’s Time to Upg...

  • SuiteWorld 2012: A View into the Best Conversations on Services of the Year

    NetSuite hosted SuiteWorld 2012 in San Francisco this past May, and once again our customers demonstrated the enthusiasm, creativity and passion that drives success in their business—and drives NetSuite to continue delivering solutions that improve business performance. In the Services Vertical, that energy was especially evident in the many presentations our customers gave on their use of technology and their success in optimizing business performance. Customer sessions at SuiteWorld were a gol...

  • Yogi Berra and the Wholesale Distribution Industry

    Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame New York Yankees catcher, might be more famous for his nonsensical aphorisms than for the .285 batting average, 358 home runs and 13 World Series rings he accumulated in the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. One of my favorite Yogisms: “Ninety percent of the game is mental—the other half is physical.” Why is that a favorite? Because my role here at NetSuite covers the wholesale distribution industry, and Yogi’s blithe remark describes wholesale distribution to a tee.
