In a few weeks, I'll be writing an article entitled "Software Executives Who Should be Fired". I'm looking for executives at Independent Software Vendor (ISV) companies who want to be featured in that article.
Not everyone can be featured - there are certain requirements. Read on.
Would You Like to be Featured in the Upcoming Article?
I'm looking for executives at companies that make "business" software. Executives at SaaS/Cloud software companies as well as on-prem software vendors are fine. Specifically people with C-level titles, VP titles, or people that report to the CEO.
Does that describe you? Great. There's still one more hoop to jump through - it's key that you reject some (preferably all) of the six following benefits as desirable for your product lines:
- Faster "first contact to close" times.
- Increased close rates.
- Improved competitive stance.
- Improved market share.
- A more valuable product.
- Decreased sales effort.
What to Do Next?
First, read my article on ebizQ's Integration Edge entitled "Fast ISV Success Through Cloud-Integration: Migration Services". If for some reason you still feel that you:
- Are uninterested in the benefits listed above
- Want to be featured in the "who should be fired" article,
Please contact me , and include your email address, phone number, company name, the benefits listed that you think are undesirable (you can just list them by number - no need to retype them). It'd be great if you could include the email addresses of their Board members too.
Oh, if you are an executive at Netflix or Bank of America, you don't need to respond - you'll be automatically included in the article. Even though you don't fit the "ISV" categories, your recent blunders are sufficiently legendary to merit inclusion into any "should be fired" list.
