  • The late Douglas Adams wrote these words just over 9 years ago in August 1999. These comments could be applied to social media and social networks today. Many of the people I meet each day don’t understand the importance, impact or value of social media or networking in our lives today – both in our private and more importantly – our professional lives.
  • What many businesses have not realised is that these communities are working together to help each other in all aspects of life. And that includes advising each other on your products and services. Their experiences are now being told to everyone and holding you accountable.
  • This was the camera in 1888. The instructions to take a picture require many steps and rather detailed complex instructions. Rather like some business processes you have to use today.George Eastman invented roll film. Instead of trying to put his roll film into the camera of the day, he invented a camera that could be operated in 3 easy steps. This camera and approach arguably put Eastman (or rather the Kodak Eastman company) in the forefront of consumer products for nearly 100 years….
  • When we released Siebel 8 – we took the same approach – designing simple screens and navigation that decomposed a complex process into a series of simple steps. Filling the screens was easy – as we highlight the most important fields. Navigation uses forward and back arrows. As task panel allows you user to jump in a non-sequential manner between the steps.This user interface and flow based approach is great for all manner of uses – but is not a universal solution for all users.
  • Eastman was successful because he made use of a system. Customers would take pictures, and send the camera off to be processed at the factory. The factory would then refill the camera and then return the camera to the customer. The complexity was managed back at the factory.
  • Almost 100 years later, Apple launched the iPod – with very much the same approach. Their music player was not the best music player on the market. It wasn’t the smallest either. The competitors such as Sony and Rio had been in the market for some time and had been focusing on putting more features into their devices. This made the devices incredibly complex. Apple changed that model. The iPod was the device to browse and listen to music. The focus was on the tasks you do the most – and making that experience a simple one. All the complex tasks are carried out in Apple’s iTunes. This was their factory, where a user could acquire and rate music and create playlists.
  • We took the same approach with the CRM gadgets. We focused on the tasks that the sales person does the most. People often ask whey we did not focus on creating and updating contact information. My response is “Why? We have an application for that.”The gadget is a great way to browse and call your contacts (or email or tag or search). In addition – whenever you make a call or send an email we capture that transaction and write that back to the CRM system for you. This is something that none of the CRM products on the market will do for you today. We focus on the things you do the most – and leave the complex stuff (like adding contacts and updating contact information) in our system – either Siebel CRM, or Oracle CRM OnDemand or Peoplesoft CRM.
  • OK So we have talked about the Siebel task based user interface and the CRM gadgets we have been building. It was clear however that the next generation of Enterprise applications needs something more that just a task UI or a gadget. Over the last year and a half we have learnt something else as well. That users want a richer, more functional user interface. Aesthetics alone are not enough. The User interface must be practical as well. Google pulls this off perfectly – it’s blend of the utmost minimalism and the sheer power of the search engine – and deliver of simple concise results – keeps it at the top of user destinations when looking for something. Compare that with other search engines that allowed their products to become advertising real estate on the web….and lose sight of their most essential purpose…
  • To understand the motivation for this, as developers and makers of software – we need to understand that there are fundamental differences in the way that we and our users view the world. As application developers or providers – we tend to think of everything from the data upwards. You have business logic and then a user interface that exposes the data and logic to a user.
  • We are the first generation that has largely been served by non-interactive media. Since the dawn of time, all of our media experiences have been collaborative and engaging. Whether it was story telling around a fire, plays at the theatre or rock concerts at a stadium, we have all participated as a social group in the experience. Think back to the best concert you ever went to. It was probably one where the artist engaged and talked with the audience, rather than just turned up and played. For the last century, cinema and television have dominated media and we have been disengaged, passive spectators. Rich internet applications capture the spirit of collaboration and feedback. Using animation and motion delivers a rich engaging experience that carries the user from scene to scene. Providing feedback to the user – either as the user progresses through a task – or to give added value to the user based on data he or she provided – will drive up adoption – because the user get’s something out of the experience. You get nothing for updating a database field.
  • Based on this understanding, there needs to be a shift in thinking – from a technology/data/logic oriented view of the world to one where experience dominates the overall design process. We are not saying that data/process and technology should not be considered – but that there should be equal if not more focus on the experience as seen by the user. I have heard all too often that X or Y had to be done some way because of a limitation of the technology or process. That’s not good enough today.
  • This is an application that James Ward and I built last year for Openworld 2007. The radar is a simple concept. Imagine that the radar shows all of your contacts and those contacts are placed on your radar screen by the date that you last talked with that person (we could use other criteria). The center of the radar is the current date – and as you move out (in any direction) you are moving out in time. Eventually – some contacts will fall off the radar – meaning that you have effectively lost touch with that person and the relationship has gone cold. So the basic idea of the radar is to identify those contacts – and call those contacts from the application – so that you can bring the contact back close to you.We have updated it to make it much simpler for the user to view selected contacts, filter contacts by any manner of attributes and when you change the timeline – the contacts that fall off the radar – automatically fall into your call list.
  • A fundamental tenet of Enterprise 2.0 is the notion of sharing. This flies in the face of conventional wisdom within most businesses. The saying goes “knowledge is power” - and yet when knowledge is shared – the community as a whole benefits…. Businesses today are facing a time bomb. There is a whole generation about retire – and when they go – their knowledge will go with them. Innovative companies such as GE has realised this and have let their employees create their own Wikis to share this information. GE just manage the infrastructure – and try not to get in the way of the users.
  • The biggest problem that companies face today is that they are not structured appropriately to share information. Here we have a 3500 year old design pattern, made successful by under Ceasar’s campaigns (the army structure was established well before that). Generals gave instructions top down so that the troops on the ground would understand what the direction from the top was.Businesses today are structured in exactly the same way. However – as Lou Gerstner wrote in “Elephants Can’t Dance” – when he got to IBM and started making changes – the layers of management would either misinterpret his messages or downright disagree with the focus/direction/objectives – and so miscommunication occured. Another problem that manifests itself when you have divisions – is rivalry. Just as the Army, Navy and Air forces have a rivalry between each other – businesses often lose sight of the enemy (the competition) and will start to compete against itself – this is what happened with the sales teams selling Wordstar (a DOS product) and Wordstar 2000 (a Windows product). Because these were two separate product sets with differing features and no interoperability – the sales teams competed against each other. As a result, Microsoft, which was at #2 with their product on the market, became the #1 player. Had the Wordstar teams worked together – and collaborated (the fault lies with the management and the development teams) – across divisional lines – features such as document interoperability and upgrades would have been available from the outset.
  • Provide an intelligent method for prompting the thinking of reps about potential affinity And research (lateral thinking - six degrees) Facilitate great discussions with prospects with “mini-stories” and scripts (prioritized by affinity)Nucleus Research On average, reps search at least 5 repositories for information.. 67% of reps are overwhelmed by information.
