The Apple Watch is top of my mind, but two new tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies (Sig­nalFX and Layer) have made news this week too. Slack is in the news again. RBC wants to go head to head with Apple in mobile pay­ments. Inter­est­ing sto­ries about Banks and their use of APIs.

Get­ting a new prod­uct or ser­vice to mar­ket depends increas­ingly on the devel­oper com­mu­nity you’ve built. IBM helped illus­trate that this week. I’m shar­ing a model for cre­at­ing exa­clty the right mobile expe­ri­ences your busi­ness needs to thrive. And a few thoughts on blog­ging as an enter­prise employee.

A few thoughts on route to market

Think­ing of the Apple Watch, I can help but notice all the things we don’t know. In par­tic­u­lar, how the heck are they going to sell the thing? It’s going to be fas­ci­nat­ing to watch. I also share some thoughts on Apple Pay and it’s route to mar­ket rel­a­tive to the recently announced Google and Sam­sung Pay offerings.

Apple & IBM’s part­ner­ship con­tin­ues to get rave reviews. March 9th we learn more about Apple­Watch, but I’m really wait­ing to see what IBM says about it. How is work is chang­ing? How impor­tant is your route to mar­ket? Blockchain inno­va­tion is beyond crazy. Read about Swarm, an orga­ni­za­tion where I’m vol­un­teer­ing some time.

What I found interesting this week (#9)

Insight into the chang­ing work­place from Davos, engage­ment at work sta­tis­tics that my (or unfor­tu­nately may not) star­tle you, and a book to read if you want more. Rethink­ing enter­prise soft­ware. Mus­ings about the future of branch bank­ing, TouchID, and some inter­est­ing Apple­Pay sta­tis­tics. Blockchain inno­va­tion examples.
