Joe Lamantia writes about "the death of Enterprise Software". Why is Enterprise Software dead? From an innovators perspective - why sink years of your life, and millions in investor dollars to build great solutions for buyers who don't want innovations from third parties? Right.
A quote from Joe: "It's no surprise then that 'enterprise software' as it is installed and configured in many large corporations is generally massive, anonymous, byzantine in structure and workings, indifferent or hostile to individual needs, offensively neutured in all aspects of it's user experience, and often changed arbitrarily to align with a power calculus determined by a select few who operate at great remove from the majority of the people who use the environment on a daily basis. After all, that is the nature of communication in many large (and quite a few small and medium sized) corporations."
