Cloud-based ERP software company NetSuite has just finished their annual user and partner event, SuiteWorld. This year's event is significant as it's the first one after the company's acquisition by Oracle last year. That US$9.2B purchase is Oracle's largest ever acquisition and will drive some changes in how NetSuite operates.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


I'm currently attending SuiteWorld. This is the annual customer event for cloud-based ERP software maker NetSuite (which was acquired by Oracle late last year). During the opening keynote today, given by Executive Vice President of Oracle + NetSuite Jim McGeever, it was announced that a new piece of the NetSuite product pie would become available this June. The new HR module, SuitePeople, brings HR functions into the suite. But this had me thinking. Is a single software solution that brings everything to you in one neat package the way to go? Or should you buy best-of-breed apps for each function and integrate them?


As you read this, I should be somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, en route to Las Vegas. I'll be attending SuiteWorld. This is NetSuite's annual event where the company shares what's new, gets customers to tell their stories and tells us what's we can expect from their cloud-based business software in the coming year.
