Doug Kaye's thoughts on web services, web hosting and managed services.

OO May Not Be the Best for Web Services. In a report entitled Building Web Services - The Future, Jonathan Stephenson writes, "It may come as a shock to read in the CBDI Journal that components and objects may not necessarily be the best future development platform for services."

Web Services Boon for Customers, Not Investors. "According to the findings in a new Deutsche Bank Securities report, it may be difficult for investors to profit from Web services because of how they commoditize the traditional bread and butter markets of IT consultancies and systems integrators." [Source: SearchWebServices.com]

The VC's keep asking me. I tell 'em "security appliances," but that's about it.

Information Technology in Context. "Nicholas Carr's article in the Harvard Business Review has stirred up a firestorm of controversy about the relevance of IT to business strategy. Datamation columnist George Spafford says before people completely discard what Carr has to say, there are some issues to take into account." [Source: Datamation]

Of the many dozens of articles in response to Carr's, this one is interesting because, like mine, it includes a graph showing the relationship between competitive advantage and the phases of technology adoption.
