A 'hidden asset' at Citigroup has given the bank a dominant position in the fastest-growing business on Wall Street — but challengers are knocking at the door

We sat down with Evan Goldberg, founder and executive VP of NetSuite, to talk about life three years after the company was acquired by Oracle for $9.3 billion.  NetSuite is arguably the first cloud software company, ever, narrowly beating out Marc Benioff's Salesforce.  Goldberg talks about how a 5-minute phone call with Ellison two decades ago set everything in motion, including a game plan that it's still largely following today.  Today, NetSuite is seen as one of Oracle's biggest growth sto...

The new CEO of Intuit says the rise of artificial intelligence will be as big a challenge as the company's shift to cloud computing (INTU)

Sasan Goodarzi stepped up as CEO of Intuit — the company behind products like Intuit and TurboTax — in January, replacing 11-year chief exec Brad Smith.  Smith gets a ton of credit from parties inside and outside Intuit for helping the company successfully navigate to a largely cloud-based, subscription-based software model.  To prepare to replace such a prominent figure, Goodarzi spent much of last year shadowing leaders like NFL legend Steve Young and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, trying to g...

Google is staking its claim in the next big thing after cloud computing with a new line of AI-powered hardware for developers (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google introduced Coral, a line of hardware to help hackers build and experiment with AI-powered gadgetry.  It's similar in principle to popular minicomputers like the Raspberry Pi, but with some Google special sauce — it uses a custom Google processor, customized for AI, and is designed to run the Google-created TensorFlow AI software. This could help Google spread the word of the already-popular TensorFlow, while also staking its claim in edge computing. Edge computing refers to the concept...
