  • Mailbag: DCG and Constellation Working Together for Clients Navigating the Disruption

    Scott Liewehr emailed me today announcing that Digital Clarity Group and Constellation Research, Inc. are forming a strategic alliance to better serve their clients. Scott is CEO of Digital Clarity Group and it's no secret CMS Report is an admirer of both him and his company. Yet Scott's email still surprised me. Why would DCG, rising among the ranks among analyst firms, strike an alliance with Constellation?

    The press release that accompanied Scott's email gives reasons for the strategic alliance, but I'll add one observation of my own. Both DCG and Constellation likely recognize they share the same understanding of how legacy research firms are failing their clients and believe a fresh approach to handling "digital disruption" is necessary. An understanding that can easily translates to the buyer seeking out this kind of research that two heads are better than one.

  • Business Agility and SaaS for Small and Mid-sized Businesses

    Business Agility and SaaS for Small and Mid-sized Businesses

    Only big enterprises can afford the high upfront capital expenses of on-premises applications as well as skilled IT professionals to maintain the applications. Since small to mid-sized businesses have to do more with less, SaaS is clearly the best choice for managing growth, and business agility in ever-changing markets. A major reason is because SaaS eliminates the need for an infrastructure investment, platform development or expert manpower, which enables first order initiatives to hold top priority spot. All they need for SaaS is a basic computer with a browser. SaaS is a “pay as you use” subscription delivered to the business.
