The Why And How Of Building B2B Brands

When we look back at the 2010’s, we’re going to remark that it was a decade largely driven by performance marketing. As an industry, we were obsessed with technology and automation. Endless options online allowed us to instrument and measure everything (though how many organizations actually took the time to draw conclusions from the data). And this over-prioritization to make a conversion has led to a weakening of brands. Now, B2B marketers need to find their way back to brand building to be...

Walgreens Teams With Microsoft as Both Wrestle Amazon Threats

For Walgreens, the pharmacy giant must contend with looming competitive threats from Amazon and other upstarts looking to disrupt the drugstore business. Meanwhile, Microsoft is angling to gain ground against Amazon Web Services by offering back-end computing muscle to retail, grocery and health operators that don’t want to give more business to one of their biggest foes. As part of the accord, Walgreens will begin using Microsoft’s Azure cloud-computing software, moving applications and data ...

Unlocking Creativity: Are These Creativity-Inhibiting Mindsets Holding You Back?

IN AN IBM global survey of CEOs, the overwhelming consensus was that more than rigor, management discipline, integrity or even vision, successfully navigating an increasing complex world will require creativity. In a world where we must adapt or die, we need creative solutions. In struggling to generate a sufficient number of creative ideas, we typically blame the number of creative individuals in our organization or hierarchy and bureaucracy. But in Unlocking Creativity, Michael Roberto takes...

Amazon's latest cloud product is dangerous for Cisco and Dell but really scary for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, analyst says (AMZN, CSCO, HPE, DELL)

When Amazon Web Services announced a new product called Outposts, the tech world stood up and took notice. They saw Amazon entering into the one cloud-computing market where it had no game: "Hybrid" computing, the segment of the cloud where Microsoft dominates. But a new report by UBS analyst John Roy points out that the true disruption of Outposts is this: Amazon will be putting its own home-grown data-center hardware — originally designed for its own use — into customers' private data center...

All of the major tech companies are going their separate ways, making things more difficult for regulators

Investors fell in love with a basket of stocks they called FAANG (for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) and rode those investments up a tall curve for years. Policymakers and regulators found it convenient to paint a single big target on "the big tech platforms" as the spate of privacy- and election-related controversies since 2016 raised calls for government action. But the closer the government looks at the companies' problems, the harder it gets to settle on any one-size-fits-al...

MongoDB stock sinks 13% after Amazon encroaches on its turf — but an analyst says that MongoDB has two secret weapons (MDB, AMZN)

MongoDB stock closed 13% down after Amazon Web Services announced its own rival DocumentDB. Analysts say this needs to be taken seriously because of Amazon's scale and reach — but it's too early to tell if it will affect MongoDB in the long term. MongoDB has two key advantages more capabilities and a loyal developer following — so loyal that when Microsoft offered a competing database called CosmosDB, it had little impact on MongoDB. MongoDB's stock was down 13% at the close of the first d...

Jeff Bezos' impending divorce carries some big risks for Amazon shareholders (AMZN)

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' impending divorce from his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, carries at least two big risks for the company's shareholders, legal experts say. Bezos could become distracted by the divorce proceedings, affecting his ability to run Amazon. The divorce could also potentially lead to a mass sell-off of stock by either Bezos or his wife. Legal experts think Bezos and his wife will work to minimize those risks, since it's in their interests to do so. But divorces don't always go smoothly...

Jeff Bezos' divorce could soon make MacKenzie Bezos one of Amazon's biggest shareholders (AMZN)

Amazon could soon have a large new individual shareholder in the form of MacKenzie Bezos as a result of her impending divorce from the company's CEO.

On Wednesday, Amazon Web Serivces announced DocumentDB — a new document database service that's compatible with MongoDB, a popular open source database.  In October, MongoDB — the $4.4 billion company behind the database of the same name — took defensive moves against larger cloud platforms taking and selling its software for profit without giving back.  AWS, in particular, has a reputation for profiting off of free software from smaller companies, while contributing little code to the compa...

Tesla had a wild 2018 — here's every bizarre thing that happened (TSLA)

Tesla had a tumultuous 2018, full of both major accomplishments and challenges that threatened the automaker's existence. Elon Musk, Tesla's mercurial CEO, attracted attention for his erratic behavior, which led to lawsuits from investors and investigations from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Amazon dominated retail in 2018 — and no one else even came close to touching it (AMZN)

Amazon had a killer 2018 in nearly all respects, but its retail performance defied expectations. The company is projected to close the year netting half of all online shopping done in the US with staggering sales growth online. No other retailer came close, which is why we're naming it the most impressive retailer of 2018. For retail in 2018, there was really only one word that was on everybody's lips: Amazon. Just a mere mention of the online shopping giant sends other companies into a flurr...

Despite Larry Ellison's hype, this Wall Street analyst believes Oracle will have a tough time growing unless it becomes more like Amazon (ORCL, AMZN, MSFT)

Oracle has grown little in the last five years, highlighted by its most recent quarter coming in flat. Now, analysts say that Oracle should take notes from Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure by giving customers more flexibility with how they use Oracle products in the cloud. Right now, it's difficult for Oracle customers to run an Oracle database on other companies' clouds — a problem because customers often prefer using cloud products from multiple vendors. There's hope in Oracle's ent...
