Good discussion guys. A big warning to my respected friends on OS. This is not your CS OS. Done well in enterprise-wide context intellectually (considerably) more difficult than an analytic engine or ERP, and immeasurably more difficult to do in a transition from anything else I can imagine, have observed, or exists, than from scratch free from pre-existing systems or business models. Careful about chasing slogans that aren't real. Agree the KPI herding went over the edge long ago.

Great discussion Den; good of him to share in public. If I had my old VC hat on I would immediately assume if like most OSS models the trade-off is in margins and with the service model, the double whammy often being both a service model and high S&M spend (and churn…). Regardless, no one should underestimate the drive, effort and sacrifice to achieve as described in this industry. Congrats, and well done. Great quota btw :)

Story

Curmudgeon kicking the hype out of enterprise s/w vendors.
Introduction
A 40+ year IT enthusiast who likes to talk about innovation for professional organizations. I bat for the buyers in the IT vendor/buyer equation with the subtext:"never knowingly under-opinionated." For my sins, I'm an SAP Mentor and surprise many by declaring I used to be a partner in a British firm of Chartered Accountants.
