“Giants are not what we think they are. The same qualities that appear to give them strength are often the sources of great weakness.”

Todays quote is picked up from the English author Malcolm Gladwell, (1963-).

The Swedish daily business newspaper, IDG, had an article the other week where they said that the major vendors are loosing impact as well as presence among CIOs.

IDG was referring to a Gartner report.  One of the more notable findings in that report is the fact that 70 % (out of 2399) of CIOs want to change the relationship with their suppliers within two or three years. According to the article approximately 50% of the companies will be working with new types of partners, in areas such as mobility, cloud, digital delivery, big data, business intelligence and social media.

New small vendors will increase in importance on behalf of the giants.

Barium is a small innovative, cloud-based vendor with mobile capabilities so if you want to work with a company for the future give us a call. If you by any chance will be in London March 19-20 and visit the Gartner BPM Summit you will meet us in person.
