Salesforce Service Cloud CEO, Clara Shih on the Importance of Account Based Service

"Wanted to share three things. I wish i'd known done five years ago. Which i'm now making sure that our team sales for spills into the product tell other company leaders in sas not make the mistake that i did. The first one is what. I call account based support. We've all heard of abm. We did that in hearsay. Abm didn't help us with bob. Abm actually made bob madder because every time we try to nurture him with thought leadership or up sell him on a new product. He was reminded that we were working on things other than the thing that he asked for three years ago. So if we take a step back right first let's talk about what kinds of support cases usually get resolved. I throw the quick and easy ones. The ones that you're tier one support agents can do first call resolution. Everyone's happy restart device reset your password. Reauthenticate burlington account then. There are the high severity cases. You're step one step two your psychos down. Everybody from engineering is no rushing into the proverbial office pulling all nighter to get the site backup asap l. Hands on deck. Third category are the issues that lots of customers are complaining about. Good pm's in pm one-to-one we're trained to focus their into the the rest. Lets you become accustomed development shop that leaves the risk zone. The ever elusive important. But not urgent quadrant in this is where bots ticket was waiting for us. He really needed it for how they are enterprise. It environment was set. Up wasn't a quick fix. Didn't qualify as one by any means it would have benefited other customers to but to him. It was an enormous pain not to have it but it got lost in the mix. So i've been thinking about this pretty much nonstop for the last five years and this notion of account based support it's meant to solve issues like box and if you think about all of the different customer facing functions be have enterprise sales it's inherently account based marketing has gone based in the last few years. Now it's supports ternan services. Turn so that we can factor in whether someone is a strategic customer which is whether there's an open opportunity which his company did have whether they issued in rfp which they had this data we know exists in our companies that existed at hearsay. But it was all over the place siloed

Bitcoin Mining With North America's Largest Miner

"Our guys bang bang. Got fred here. Thank you so much for doing this. Thank you great to be here absolute. Let's get started with marathon in kind of your background. So marathon is one of the largest. Bitcoin miners in north america. What did you do before you on the board and then became the see you so twenty. Five plus years running technology companies across a variety of sectors. Fintech was a big one. Matter of fact my first programming job was at a bank so grew up really understanding the friction. The financial markets was had the good fortune taking some companies public. Doing a lot of a and then switch to the dark side became a private equity managing partner and did leveraged buyouts tech companies and then started advising really large funds and tech companies. I had known the ceo. Marathon merrick former ceo now executive chairman for many years socially or kids grew up together and i joined the board in two thousand eighteen. Really that help him with kind of the transition to bitcoin. Mining and blockchain always been fascinated by blockchain. I think it's a great leveler. If you look at kind of how the internet developed and brought kind of the democratization of information i think people exposing data on the blockchain is going to change. How businesses operate imagine companies like salesforce. Who effectively hold your crm data hostage. If all that data around the block chain not only could use salesforce taxes and gained benefit from it. But you could use other applications. I think there's just a were so early in this blockchain development. Bitcoin cryptocurrencies. Just one part of it. I'm a big believer in the bitcoin. Blockchain foundation for financial institutions very secure fully decentralized network. You know you can say other things about ethier. Money has some great benefits. But it's still is less decentralized than the bitcoin blockchain and there's just so much you can do so. I was very excited at the opportunity to step into more of an operating a marathon. And i think now's the time where you'll see. The miners become more professional. Companies were real enterprises. If you just look at the build out plans most of us have you know. We'll be billion dollar revenue companies within the next year and a half to two years and those become big companies and they need to be run in a proper way with good

Building Success From Anywhere

"And today i'm joined by lisa. Lisa could you go introduce yourself. My name is lisa. Marshall i head up a team within the technology products organization. That's focused on overall employees success at engagement both attracting technical talent to come to salesforce as a technology destination but then also what someone joins making sure that people have great experiences and have the skills that knowledge that they need to be successful. And as part of that. I get to lead these success from anywhere program for the tech in products organization within salesforce and i assume success from anywhere is something about like remote work and something like that. It's kind of a mix. It's really everything it could be remote. It could be people who are what we're calling flex could be. People are office. It's really about the overall health. Can we make sure our employees are successful. No matter where they are or what their situation and the way we're looking at it is what i mentioned the flex remote or in office. We're thinking about it. In kind of a few different ways so traditionally of course we had what we believed was mostly office employees around the globe and then we looked at our data and said maybe. It's not so much that people weren't coming in full-time is expected head tim kits. Obviously we're all now working from home but in this past few months we've been thinking about. Well what will the future look like. What our employees want. What our leaders want for our Kind of what. It looks like from what we just call. Things like worker types. So of course we'll have people who will be in office mostly full time if not full-time and then we'll have a group of people who were calling flax which is people who will come to the office. Maybe one to three days a week to work with their scrum teams. Or maybe even one day every other week really. It's that flex idea where you could come to an office to work together when it makes sense for you and your team for collaboration in other

It plays in inflammatory conditions and one hundred and eighty life. Sciences develop new therapies that target. Tanf i'd like to start with a little history though early in your career you served as chief scientific officer and senior. Vp of research and development center core and led the team that developed remedied. The firsthand inhibitor. When you were doing this at what point did the raw potential for tanf. Inhibitors become clear. Will the it's fascinating story in that When i joined santa are chief scientific officer. They had a very very large substance program going on treating patients with sepsis and they had a gm antibody against endotoxin and The day initial data was a little unclear and the fda required them to do in all comers sepsis trial and that failed and senator gore was in big problem. Because of that lot of people it actually hired a salesforce to sell this stuff so We were talking with the clinicians who treat substance patients. They were convinced that it really was tian out. Tumor necrosis factor that was causing the inflammation and the death of these patients. And so we did have an antibody against tanf that was made and we humanized.

Interview With Gideon Mendels, CEO Of Comet

"We're so excited to have with us today given mendel. Who's the ceo and co founder of comet so high gideon and thank you so much for joining us today jeff million. Hey you're on. Thank you so much for having me. I'm super excited to today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at comment definitely so as you mentioned. I'm the ceo and co founder of comment For the listeners. Who don't know comet provides a self hosted in college based missionary platform essentially on data science teams to track impair explain and optimize experiments models company support some of the biggest and best enterprise machinery teams in healthcare attack media financial services and other industries Her son who actually started maker of software engineer but she sixteen years ago. And i shifted do working on an applied machine learning about seven years ago. I was a grad student whilst work work on speech processing natural language processing after that i had my own start up again in. Nlp space. And after that. I was google Where i was working on deep learning research specifically we were working on detecting hate speech on youtube comments using the malls. Yeah that's that's really a great application. In general for automated systems is very hard for for humans to just manage the mountains of tasks that are needed for moderation. So great use of of a and a great applied use of ai. It's cool that you bring into that so let's sort of bring us into now. I know what you're doing with commented lot of it's helping people make these better models and and iterative battle and manages models so maybe you could tell us a little bit in our listeners. About what are some of the challenges that organizations face today when they're trying to build machine learning models into production That's a great question. And i liked it. Use the word build rather than deploy because from our view comments in working with these like very business focused engineering teams the biggest challenge in getting them. All production isn't the actual deployment or devops problem behind. It's really a building model. That's good enough to justify deployment right so when we think about machine learning it's actually buried their friends. Offer engineering both from a process perspective. The dodgy the tools everything about different machine learning iterative process tres many pitfalls in the way and now whether it's your optimizing for the wrong metric or you're leaking your target or you're just working on a data set. That doesn't have enough signal so eventually it's really comes down to building a model that meets the business. Kpi in most of the teams out there are really struggling with that point Like i mentioned. There's a lot of things that can contribute to that but a big part of it is the lack of processes and tools of doing these things in a safe and a predictable way. you know. it's it's great that you gave that explanation. I know that a lot of companies are now starting to bring their starting to build models and think about how they can incorporate machine learning into their their company. So why is it. Important to have a tool for data scientists and teams to track explain in optimize experiments in models. That's an excellent question. And i think a lot of companies learned that the hard way but really impossible to run a team successfully without a system of record of your work. I mean that's true for most job functions. Not just machine learning. You know whether it's gets hub for after themes or salesforce for cell students hub spot for marketing and so on you really need a central system of records manage these processes and and again like other system records. Another jobs luncheon. Once you have that like. In our case on experiment and a model management platform it provides value to anyone was in walden engineer. Works so whether it's data scientists that's looking to track their experiments compare and understand. Why one models being better than the other is bias or issues with a model through the software engineer that's needs actual binary defer deployment all the way to the manager that wants to track and have visibility of a team progression and eventually maintaining all that institutional knowledge about research experimentation metrics and models within the organization and non people's personal notes for example.

Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?

Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?

"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home

An End to the Tech Rally?

"We'll rising rates kill the tech rally. Guy what do you say yes back to. You melt absolutely so much of this has been predicated on on this low interest rate zero straight environment when you have tenure yields go from fifty three basis points in august two one point four percent today i understand rates are still low but the velocity and the speed of the move has been well. It hasn't been historic. But it's been noteworthy. And i think we're headed to one and a half. We've said it for a while and that's your line in the sand you start getting significantly north of one and a half percent and the entire thesis in my opinion behind a lot of these high flying tech names starts unravel and you're starting to see it now in the big hans christian andersen fan. I know euros well. Mel and a lot of people mistakenly call the that little vignette that he wrote. The emperor has no clothes. It's the emperor's new clothes. But i got to tell you the close at the fed is wearing right now are not fitting and i think they're going to be revealed for what they are in the coming weeks. They think they can control this out of their control at this point. Yeah karen i. I'll go to you on this. Well i mean obviously we have been in this environment of close zero percent insurance for so long and so when we move out of that. Something's gotta give now. Yes i think. So but i think a few things are happening at the same time. So there's the higher rates that guy talked about. We always talk about the risk premium. What should the equity risk premium beaten as rates go up. The risk premium should be higher therefore valuations lower. But the other side of. It is a rates going up because the economy is improving. And i believe that. Yes that's the case. But i also think that the earnings of a lot of these high flyers and let's talk about something like google for example. I think those earnings are going to be actually much better so on long those. It's a painful day. One thing that. I have on as a hedge which is not nearly enough to hedge how much i would lose him. A day like today is the gb which is the it's tech software and its high fliers. The biggest position is microsoft. But it's really expensive. Names salesforce service now zoom video. Docu sign crowd strike. Those are all going to get hit. Against what i think of as my more value tech today wasn't value at all on sale again and again but i think that if the rates move up slowly because the economy improves. I'm okay with that. I know we'll have a rotation into more cyclicals. But i'm sticking with what i've got. Yeah and obviously it's highest wires on. They'll probably take the hardest hits at this point carfax. North cornerstone macro makes a very good point in that is their alliance the s. and hunt five hundred on information technology. More broadly and in terms of down days and information technology eighty percent of the time the s. and p. five hundred trades lower as well. This is since nineteen eighty nine. Dan and i know you like carter's work. So i mean his point basically is you can't hire overall without technology that being said though if you look at the mag accomplish the microsoft apple google amazon. They've gone sideways for the last four months. Or so as we've seen that rotation into more cyclical names so we did move higher without their real participation and now it's interesting on a day like today that you see the nasdaq down two and a half percent or so to me. I think what karen laid out is really smart. I mean you look at the mega caps and you see their value tech yes. They benefited from low. Interest rates. For a whole host of reasons most notably. They raised a ton of money and they put on their balance sheet and they really not paying a whole heck of a lot and i think as it relates to interest rates. You have to ask yourself who really wants. Interest rates to go higher at this point and guy makes a good point that yeah they're going to they're going because the economy is getting a little better. Look at the ten year chart of the us treasury. You'll we thought we had generational lows at about one and a half percent back in two thousand twelve then again in two thousand sixteen then again in two thousand and thousand nine hundred then you consider yourself or you consider how much negative yielding sovereign debt. There is in the world about fifteen trillion and you think about the corporate been john debt and even consumers you yourself who wants rates to go higher then you look at it over a thirty year period and i think we have that chart and it's just upper left to bottom right so maybe you get through that one and a half on the ten year treasury. Maybe you get to that long-term downtrend which would be about two and a quarter. If that is the case then yes equities. You're going to have a very hard time in this environment. Given the state of deficits right

Jeremiah Owyang - Social Audio Analytics and Constituent Groups - Voicebot Podcast 195 - burst 07

"I want to come back to this idea social audio analytics and maybe the social audio management system this is going to be near and dear to the heart to a lot of the people who listen to this podcast because their space is accustomed to taking raw audio content transforming taxed analyzing it Actually putting it against other services and potentially returning information. So i wanted to explore that with you. A little bit we. We haven't seen that publicly yet and any of these social audio spaces you expect. People are actually doing it today. How do you think that that's going to play out. Do you expect this to be predominantly the platforms are going to try to control it and use this as a feature and trying to block other people or do you think it's mostly going to be third parties coming in and somehow getting the feed whether through direct. Api or from a rogue angle and then being able to provide that data to people who are interested in it. Yes so. I think there's maybe four constituent groups to think about here. Let's try to break this down. And i don't have all the answers here. I'm speculating so there are the platforms themselves twitter spaces and clubhouse and facebook. I think they are so twitter. Spaces already has real time voice to text translation into english which is on the lower third for some speakers. It's a three second delay about ninety percent accuracy. Ucla right yes okay. The second group would be the Government agencies and spies They're probably already doing it. But we'll never know. Group will be the traditional social media Analytics companies like salesforce and adobe salesforce acquired radian six In two thousand eleven ten years ago For three hundred million and their job was to grab all of the text based social media content. That was being produced at a rapid pace and make insights out of it and sell to brands for seven. Figure deals annually on what is being set in their market and give them analysis on share voice sentiment byproduct by region by country by network by individual by they produce. I was involved heavily with that industry now. The fourth group the fourth group i think is the one that will deploy so i. I don't think salesforce. And adobe wanna risk breaking the terms of service against twitter and risk that access that they already have in their. Api I don't think they wanna be scraping that content and also risk privacy concerns especially when a democratic administration is very concerned about privacy when it comes to social media as well as on the right hand side of the government as well they're even more concerned about suppression of so i don't think those big giant tech companies Adobe salesforce and oracle to do an ibm want to do that. So i think it's gonna be the fourth category which will be roguish punkish startups that are going to rip the content off with botts at a recording. The information then conduct voice to text analysis. And then do the other things that i already mentioned with sentiment in mining and influence analysis network. So i think it's going to be done under the covers of darkness fair enough and do you believe that the botts will be listed as users and basically some sort of fake user or are they going to be attached to a real users use. The system could be both. I mean there are. People are reporting data out of social audio by using. You know i rig systems and connecting to their ipod to other systems as well and just you know exporting that data. That's already happening.

And in fact i went to cal state long beach so i used to be in the la area for a long time so it's good to reconnect with lovely l. a. What i used to call the center of the universe at that time. So let me introduce you to the audience for those people. That don't know eric. He is the ceo of content intelligence software. click flow. Which helps you grow your traffic while looking like a genius and who doesn't want that also owns an ad agency single grain and work with companies such as amazon airbnb salesforce and uber to acquire more customers. He hosts to podcasts. Marketing school with neil patel and leveling up which combined have over forty eight million downloads to date. He's also frequently around the world of marketing and software as a service and he's recently publishing a book called leveling up. And i happen to tell you. Eric doesn't know this. But i've managed to get an inside person to give me the first copy of the book. Let me find it and there. It is whoa. They sent it to you know. Just kidding i made myself. I made included on a little book that i had. But that's what it's going to look like folks and it's called up and right now you can get chapter number one which i've been through and i'm really excited. So maybe you can just tell the audience a little bit about yourself and what they're gonna get from this book and what they could do now to get some of that in wednesday coming out all. Here's the fiscal copy. Here's what is gonna look like boom. This is what it looks like. It's coming out february. Twenty four th. But my name's eric su. So you know to your point couple of businesses. I kind of my go-to level at the world through marketing. So the business you mentioned but we also have any events business. We have an education business and we also invest other mar related sass and to podcasts. You mentioned i just love learning. I love teaching to articulate my thoughts. And i'm here on this podcast to talk about my worst investment. I think there's a there's a theme here. I'll try to tie everything together without me too. Wordy that's great. You know it's interesting. Because when i read through the first chapter and also i'm a listener of your podcast. Both of them. What i get from us that we come from a slightly different generation. Let's say i graduated from university and cal state long beach in nineteen eighty nine. And i didn't really. I wasn't in the gaming realm at the time and i wasn't when it started really hit. I wasn't that interested in it. So what i notice about about you. And i suspect that this is what people were going to get out of the book instead. You focus on some really short actionable things and it's feel like whether it's your podcasts. Or when i read your book. It is a lot about getting to that next level in little steps. And that's the way i was brought up. I was born with heavy big content redes- whole book and then tell me what you learn. Is that correct to think of it that way. Or how do you think how does your mind. Yeah it's so. I have this turtle in front of me and i got from puerto rico and i visited puerto rico for obvious reasons but it reminds me to slow down and to understand that you leveling up one percent everyday just trying to get a little better every single day. That's what it's all about because if you think of decades that be results in decades you'll be amazed by what you accomplished and you have short term hustle and long-term outlook. It's the same thing as investing at the end of the day. So i think it's You know. I'm glad that you noticed that we'll actually never thought of it that way but yeah that's exactly what it is. Yeah in fact before we get into the question. I just quote one thing out of the book and that is you say just because you have struggled in pass does not mean you're entitled anything to play at the next level you'll have a new set of struggles and that's something that really hit me because first of all at the age of fifty five. Life's supposed to be good and easy and all that no no. There's still struggles that you gotta face. That's the first thing. But the second thing that i took away from that this again this kind of incremental way that you look at things focus on the struggles in that one little level and there's always going to be those new struggles so that's a big thing that i've taken away from it. I'm looking forward to getting to the whole book someday. I'll have it by the way. Like i noticed a little warm buffet character in the back. I think that's what it is and so if you think about it. Eighty four point. So i think he's worth eighty five billion eighty. Four of that didn't come until after his sixty fifth birthday. So you talk about patients there. You go right there.

Salesforce won't force workers to go into office post-COVID

"We'll good news from salesforce. Everybody we don't have to work anymore. Oh that's awesome. It's only personally choose salesforce posted to its blog. Tuesday a headline that got a lot of attention titled the nine to five workday is dead so sales wars is gonna give employees three categories to choose from for their work schedule while still being employees at sales worse. They don't just get to kick up their feet. They still have to work but flex one of the options would see employees coming in one to three days per week into the office. Salesforce says it. Huge huge headquarters in san francisco but they have employees all over the world. The other categories are fully remote. You don't go anywhere at all. You just work remotely and office. Based office based is expected to be the smallest category with employees like building maintenance or other roles that just require them to be an office five days a week so that part makes sense. Sometimes you just can't be remote but salesforce is saying the majority of our people can and have and we don't want to change your back. Yeah we were wondering all last year like after the covert is over. How much of this work from home. We'll stick and this isn't necessarily the typical response but we have a responsible with very large companies. Saying what we're gonna do is let a lot of people stay home. I know some companies have already made work from home permanent but salesforce is is interesting saying we are going to let you pick the category. I imagine you have to pick it with your boss. Obviously if you're in the maintenance department they're not gonna let you work from home. You have to come in and do that job. But but yeah they're going to have these multiple categories and it shows that this great experiment we were all forced into has certainly had effects that you now realize a working from home isn't trying to shirk duties. Working from home can absolutely work in various roles but also we may have some rules. That really do need to be in the office a couple of days a week. And that's what i think is kind of interesting about this from sales forces. They didn't say it's fully remote or in the office they said there's also this category of like man you need to be around sometimes to mix with each other and do some face to face brainstorming or whatever But there's some rules that you only need to do that a couple of weeks a couple of days a week and if you'll need to do a couple of days a week while then we don't need as much office space for you so the rest of the

Molecular Therapeutics Hopes to Reshape Gene Therapy

"So the first rail on a touch on today is from arena pharmaceuticals. The ticker symbol is a u. p. h. And they're sitting in a market cap. Now veron two two point one billion dollars and what we heard about a week ago is that they received fda approval for luke kindness for adult patients with active lupus nephritis and for those who haven't been following the company too long. They showed really really powerful phase three data. The stock shot up really well and then it's been kind of slowly selling off into you know around the thirteen fourteen dollar area and what we heard with this. Fda approval is the stock shot up to around twenty bucks and since then it's trading at around sixteen dollars now. I took a position around thirteen bucks and then sold most of it at around eighteen. And now i'm just sitting at around ten shares in anticipation of the future. And so we'll talk about that right now. But basically what the fda approval there are few details and one was that there was a black box warning but it was pretty much in line with cyclosporine. So it's not really anything to be concerned about. The other real benefit is that the patent protection is likely until the year twenty thirty seven so there were some concerns that the patent protection for arena in this drug was not gonna last that long and that could cut into the profits given the fact that they would lose exclusivity after a while so the other thing we heard is that arrhenius set the pricing and they said it at a price of three thousand nine hundred and fifty dollars for sixty capsules and then they estimate that the net revenue per patient per year is gonna sit at around sixty five thousand dollars so i did some quick math. Here to look at the prevalence of lupus and in general has around twenty to one hundred fifty cases per one hundred thousand people so in the united states that works out to around sixty six thousand two four hundred ninety thousand in the usa. And i know that's a pretty broad range but these are the These the publicly available stats. The corporate presentation of iranian says. That around forty percent of lupus patients have lupus nephritis so the actual problems in the kidneys that would benefit from this therapy so that brings us down to around twenty six thousand one hundred ninety eight thousand total addressable patients in the usa. So we have. Here's an estimated total potential revenue between one point seven billion to twelve point eight billion now again. That's a. It's a huge range. When there's an order of magnitude in there but at least there we get a sense of the kind of revenue. The company is going to be able to bring in sitting at around a two billion dollar market cap. It's definitely on the lower end. Even though this is the total addressable market and we know that arena isn't gonna be able to penetrate the whole thing. But i think the reason why the stock is of depressed is because of the bear narrative in regards to launch concerns so often with these smaller companies. Because they don't have an established salesforce they don't have necessarily those established relationships with either. Kol's or doctors space. It's difficult for companies that are small to really ramp up and deliver when it comes to the sales numbers so the bare narrative is saying that well they're going to really struggle with the launch therefore the company should only be expected to do the lower end of their expectation. Now on the both side. They're saying that well arena could be an emanate contender. And there's reasons to suggest that given that the risk is so low with this drug now. The data looks good and it's already fda approved so they could be being looked at by larger pharmaceutical companies. Who already have those established sales and marketing pipelines to just include this into their portfolio products. And start selling it so. I'm not sure what's going to happen. I'm going to relatively small position. I don't know how much i feel like diving in here. Given the the launch is going to be complicated. But i could miss out on a a merger acquisition deal. That could come as well. So that's really i think. Obviously it's very positive for the company and very positive for patients that are suffering with lupus nephritis but for me. I'm happy with my small position and just seeing what happens with the start with that. Let's move onto rhythm pharmaceuticals ticker symbol are ytm and they're sitting at a market cap of around one point three billion dollars and what they announced. It was positive data from semolina tied in additional emcee for our pathway deficient related. obesity 's so semolina tied was recently approved for hamas egas recessive mutant obese conditions related to pompey pcs k. One and leptin receptor so what that means. Is that patients that for this need to have a knockout in or a mutation in both copies of the gene whether it's policy pcs k. One or leptin receptor. Now what we weren't sure of is whether or not similan tide had an effect in hetero zayas patients and what this is is patients that have one functional copy of this gene so if their drugs sent. Milan could have an effect. In hetero zygote significantly expand the patient population that would qualify for treatment with this drug and with an expanded patient population. Obviously the revenues could be substantially higher than what we expect if it was only the home. Zygote

An open doorway, a conversation with a friend

"Hello it's ron today. We don't have a regular meditative story instead. I've written a special meditation based on stories from my own life. It's just something. I want to share before we start. I'm sending appreciation to salesforce for their sponsorship of meditative story while you may know them for their role in bringing companies and customers together. Salesforce office works to improve the state of the world by sharing the stories of leaders who are making positive changes. They believed in meditative story before we had first listener. Okay let's get going. So i'm thinking a lot about transitions. The temperature dropping seasons shift winter starting to bite one year clicking into the next closer to home the city where i live moving from one level of restriction to another class. He's still my son no longer just a child but a school child. He's just finished his term in school. Having transition seamlessly into the routine of monday to friday life he's loving the lining and it's a daily delighted to see him soaking tolan but part of me dismissed the naivety of by excitement when i dropped him off in the morning. It's the right kind of infectious. Had already ruffled and blue school blazer. Size too big for him. His little body alive and upright is smile ready his head loose on the top of his spine looking for the best friend to run up to watch out. We're going to make some mischief daddy. So let's start a meditation time together by embedding on's little big energy back upright bring alertness and vivacity the head sitting soft hosting a smile. Soft open but alive and ready for connection I've made a thing of transitions in my day. Especially the big ones. If you arrive home from work in our cafo you can pick all the stresses and drama foam your workplace into the first conversation you have with your partner or your first interaction her. At least i can act of walking through the doors reminder to reset to give my family the gift professionals like i suspect many of you this year. Many the thresholds which allow these transitions to happen have collapsed. Going from work to home is now just a spin of the home of his check space. We work workout. Eat out for much of the year has all been the same though. Natural transitions of the commute. The school run the front door. I guess much. Those transitions thresholds. There's limited amounts. I need them. My winds of change spaces starting again spaces where i find dressed and without the crash. Avoid being on where. I find my best ideas. So i've taken to building them engineering thresholds halls walking out of the house at the end of the workday. So i can enter it again as a family space a little rituals invisible to the naked eye the holding of a cereal bowl into hans votive along glass of water. And you start each to away in my house portal. So let's pay attention to the small transitions. The ones whose potential is always hair sometimes overlooked the place where the in breath and the out breath meet. Yes it's subtle but there is a spot a moment a no thing Breathing switches directions. In fact there are two. Let's see if you can find one the one at the end of the in breath and before the out breath is easiest to see if you can put your attention here at the turning point of the breath after the knbr fans and before the ad breath begins

Sweet spot the pandemic is made formerly useful tools utterly essential without videoconferencing document sharing the light corporate productivity would ground to a halt when we all began working from home now that more and more big companies are telling employees. They can work from home forever. It appears that teamwork may never go back to the way it was before remote teams. Could well be the new normal.

Said he believes. This is the most strategic combination in the history of software with the purchase salesforce could expand beyond the realm of sales and marketing and into all corners of big companies according to observers like box ceo aaron levie and slack could expand its user base something. It's apparently been struggling to do. Despite remote workers needs for better communication tools slack has one of the best brand names in the business who in the corporate world hasn't been slacked at one point or another surprisingly though the brand may be bigger than the business itself last october. The company said it had twelve million active daily users but it has an updated those numbers sense slacks sales jumped almost fifty percent in the second quarter of the year but watching as the corporate world began laying off workers butterfield warned investors that sales growth was likely to cool down. It felt a forty percent of the third quarter the new york times reported. That's all in contrast to what's happening at slacks and sale forces biggest rival. That would be microsoft. Microsoft teams competes directly with slack. Some say microsoft copied slack when it debuted teams in late. Twenty sixteen but microsoft has a built in advantage it bundles teams for free with its office suite. Microsoft three sixty five that strategy was rocket fuel for teams taking it from zero to one hundred fifteen million users in four years. According to urge reporter. Casey newton that bundling is such an obstacle for slack that the smaller company filed a complaint against microsoft with the european commission in july according to the new york times quoted in the times edward jones analysts local perk observed that the salesforce deal is an admission that slack can no longer compete against the eight hundred pound gorilla that microsoft. This is more or less saying we need more firepower. Logan told the times under butterfield's leadership slack at previously spurned other suitors including google amazon and yes microsoft itself. Sales forces pending purchase of slack is the biggest in its twenty one year history. What it represents is nothing less than the potential reordering of the silicon valley universe with this move mark. Benef- is going after enterprise sales up against microsoft directly. That's a bold move and an interesting one given that. Benny off tried unsuccessfully to sell salesforce to microsoft five years ago. What happens next should be interesting for everyone involved especially employees simply trying to be productive in stressful remote interrupt driven circumstances as the pandemic rearranges. Our work lives. It's also rearranging challenges and opportunities for makers of collaboration software. This won't be the last matchup. We'll see for companies that help us get work done together.

"And i really felt like ever notes. Integration with salesforce was their strongest angle building stronger connection to microsoft and building their user base. That way right because You know greater integration with salesforce salesforce has deep integration with lincoln. Lincoln salesforce evernote. More users and i saw a lot of opportunity there and things changed in had to rewrite their application. So obviously that's Got put on the backburner. Lincoln was purchased by microsoft. All of these things have happened in in in real time so But here you know i. I don't see them as that grand of a challenger two teams in the long run and And so i think i'm going to stand on the side of nothing's necessarily going to change productivity wise for a lot of folks who weren't using slack and were salesforce users a but for those who are slack users and now salesforce Coming onto the pipe becomes something distasteful to them And then there's a change management decides. We want to integrate more tightly with her or with another You know Crm and they wanna move away from slack. Then we should all be mindful of that. If you're in that situation and you're watching or listening start to think about what that transition looks like for your company and how that's going to impact your productivity even if it's going to another Chat platform that requires some level of of transition process. Aiming to think that through final thoughts gentlemen on slack being purchased by salesforce seven billion dollars if had heard three billion billion fucking change. Yeah yeah. I don't use either one Familiar with slack The don't use of a regular basis. Don't you salesforce at all so. I really don't have much in the way to not to worry not to worry that i mean you know. There's there's just a there's a lot here in the productivity ecosystem and what. I consistently try to remind myself is that productivity is of vague term To the point where it encompasses a lot of different ecosystems that are blended together and so some of us may use different parts and some of us may not use complete sections components of the ecosystem by virtue of the way in which we work So this has been a wonderful conversation. And i thank you gentlemen for that takes us to some announcements and then closing out I just wanted to make a quick announcement that i put out today as some of you watching may know where some listening may know i run a podcast and a virtual book club called productivity book group and Today i announced. And if you're listening to the podcast yesterday i announced we are going to be doing a group reading and discussion of getting things.

"Affiliation of slack is going to happen. But they're gonna try and do it very very slowly. I presume over time so that so just like a frog boiling in water. If you just raise the temperature there is over time. They don't know but i don't know because they can. They can integrate that communication immediately into sales into salesforce. And we'll have more seats than what they are going to lose so artisan. Just wait until sauce for tried to improve the you i on a slack and yeah that's exactly what i think is going to happen but i mean reality. Is that cycle ready. Integrates fairly well with salesforce. They have a an integration. They connect they do everything. I can think of cells force doing with slack reasonably right now. And so the real. The real purchaser was the user base. Right sales force was buying userbase and guessing. Now i used surveys. I think more than to use survey sorry francis more than two user base. It's also the fact that now they can have this external up that is going to be approved for communication because communication inside of salesforce is great but for a lot of companies. Even the day integrate. Men's another app to approve. Now it comes was suffer package so for. Dan probably was cheaper to buy them. The speedwise unreturned wise. I combine those benefits. I don't see twenty seven billion dollars value in solving any other problems that we've talked about so far i don't get i don't get twenty two million at all it it i i read. It boggles my mind. I i couldn't. I read a little bit about it but i couldn't understand. Where twenty seven billion dollars could be allocated to solving the problems that they're i guess gonna solve by putting the two together. I just didn't get it doesn't add up at all for me way off and if it's gonna as said it was going to pass out in two years time then you spend twenty million dollars to get a bunch of people who aren't salespeople to use salesforce but yeah but if you have if you have a lot of folks who are interfacing with the sales team and you need that tighter integration. I can see here Them converting to customers over time so Actually art is noting this that slack customers are potential salesforce customers and i. I absolutely agree here. I think that that they they bought a user base and in essence overtime they wanna slowly but surely turn up the heat until Some of those people become salesforce customers and the rest of them can stay happily in the slack environment until they ultimately either die out or migrate to other platforms. That's that's just a natural a point of reference. Here that i think is is makes sense in the grand logic of things. I'm with you francis. Though i am boggled at the at the twenty seven point seven billion dollar price point But they they know things we don't know right so it could be things about the code base or the talent that they acquired the purchase. That really made them jump up that number. So i don't. I don't want to cast aspersions where i don't have enough data to know this They're they're now a public company so we will see all of this in some way shape or form in the future and be interested in in diving this more deeply because this really has a profound effect on the productivity app marketplace and it is something that companies like evernote which at one time had very deep integration with salesforce and and has other integrations with any other tools. I'm fascinated by how these companies play each other in order to be able to gain greater user adoption and otherwise Said this multiple times..

"Mentioned yesterday that salesforce had agreed to acquire slack which pits salesforce more directly against microsoft teams. That is the big competitor at this point. Microsoft and salesforce compete in a few other areas as well but they also partner up a lot. Salesforce is slowly building a business software. Stack that replicates what already offers and salesforce has a twenty percent market share in crm back in two thousand eighteen at bought mule soft which connects legacy it systems to the cloud and twenty nine thousand nine about tableau data analytics platform which up until now was one of its most direct competitor to microsoft and now salesforce also has slack slacks big advantages integrating with enterprise software.

"I mean, it's it's kind of interesting because having been there so long and seeing the change from the inside first of all I can say that personally, I continually impressed from day one until now quarter of reporter in terms of the execution from the company's perspective and just in terms of kind of the evolution of that. I think it was built on the premise that. We were like any startup, you know. Born to rapid innovation. Keenly aware of our customers needs and listening to our customers, and then as you grow. I think that there's just this kind of natural kind of lag that develops within the company itself in terms of being able to effectively turn out innovation. I must say that. I'm very proud of being a Salesforce being such a large company still at a very if you wish high clip in terms of delivering innovation release after release three major releases a year. But when you think about it in terms of what startups are doing in the agility that startup has is that we can't deny the fact that startups is where innovation really is key. You know, and that that we really see it. So we use our relationships with startups from startup relations, perspective ventures and also strategic partnerships on the product side really to help drive that innovation from solution perspective. And so at the end of the day, it's not really about us in terms of you know. How many features we have per release. It's about how much of a solution. Are we actually putting into market around the customer need? I mean, looking outwards and started working with startups at Salesforce, formerly. And obviously you've done startups yourself way before then like Buchan mid noughties you start at Salesforce working with startups. And what would you say has stayed the same till now for you know, if you look at the the startup cetera. Now, we're seeing a lot of changes in terms of tax and business models. Also, what's what's fundamentally stay the same? Do you think? I think even if we go back, you know, even fifteen years, I think that the fundamentals are there a little bit beyond that and it gets a little fuzzy. But I think that Salesforce help to establish if you wish kind of the business optics if not the metrics and KPI's that are needed to actually effectively run a business that hasn't changed so effectively running assassin business is fundamental to success. And that's something that you know, you can teach you know. But ultimately the. The founders need to be receptive. To one of the things that we do in terms of the prior question that you had in terms of what we're looking for in terms of companies that we bring into our program is that we're looking for the balanced team. You know, it just can't be, you know, a guy or gal with a great tech vision. In terms of you know, here's my product it needs to be well, how are you going to execute? And that's why that that initial stance. If you wish in terms of what we're looking for intrinsic customer traction is so important, but those fundamentals are still there, I think what we've really seen change in the last five to ten years is the economics of ultimately getting product out to customers. So that has dramatically fallen. I mean, just from a platform perspective. I mean, we can look at it. You know, everybody knows from the WS perspective. In terms of how inexpensive it is to go to market. We have similar programs with her Oku. And also on the Salesforce platform side of things if you wanna bring a solution to tomorrow with Salesforce platform, you actually have zero carrying cost from. The time of conception of.

"Free at trail, head dot Salesforce dot com, and so trail head over the last four years has started tracking some of the job growth in areas. And one of the stats day came out with is in the last four years, Salesforce, technical architect jobs have grown forty one percent. However, according to our research Salesforce, technical architects in established markets are only one point seven percent of the sales force related profiles on linked them. So there's been a ton of. Growth in demand for these roles. Not not as much a ton of growth in the actual people who can do those roles, and especially when you look at something like Salesforce technical architect. It's not something that you can necessarily just go take a couple of classes. And now, you're a Salesforce architect, right? This is a role like in many other technologies. It's a combination of both very advanced technical skills as well as business analysis skills presentation skills leadership skills, and so as the demand for that has grown the supply has not grown quite as fast, which I think is really a part of what's helped drive those salaries north of one hundred and sixty thousand dollars a year. And and really, you know, again from my own anecdotal experience quite a bit more than that for folks that are really senior in that role from the source development standpoint, easily one hundred and twenty thousand dollars plus a year salaries established markets that is a more Chiba -able type of type. Technical skill a lot of those. Skills transfer wealth from other development technologies other object oriented development technologies like Java dot net as well. As with Salesforce lightning which is kind of their their new development platform, a lot of Java scripts skills from other popular platforms now job scripts car on quite a bit. Now, that's transferring its way over to Salesforce as well. And so I think that's why you've seen a little bit less gap in the Salesforce developer role a little bit easier to quite a to achieve that. But really, the pinnacle is Salesforce architect, and that's where a lot of folks who have made their way into some of the adamant and developer roles want to achieve to really, you know, number one kind of claim their mastery of the platform and number two kinda reach that pinnacle of the Salesforce career stack. I'm curious did a report on the gender gaps in the high technical rose is problem. Still exists. Yeah. Absolutely. And you know, something we wanted to look at again based on some. Dole experience. You do see a very much more diverse. Population in this Salesforce community than a lot of the other technical communities that I've been involved in. And so we did look at that. And you know, one they're a couple of interesting things that came out of that one was from our research, we've found that forty eight percent of Salesforce, administrators are female and that compares to kind of a seventy five twenty five male female split in IT roles in general. So, you know, that's actually good news. We we like seeing that. And you know, I think that again is attributes itself to the fact that a lot of folks fell into this not by going and getting a computer science degree a lot of them potentially. Just had jobs doing other things within a company and Salesforce got thrown onto their plate. And then they build a career around it. But when you get into the more technical roles, I'd developer and technical architect. You start to see a very much more. Stark contrast, socio sports developers. We're finding eighty percent male. I'll see us second co architects ninety one percent male and with sales forces push around diversity. It's one of their core values as one of the things that they really invest a lot in in push a lot. We wanted to understand how that trickle down to the ecosystem. So this was a way for us to again quantify the the the problem here and understand, you know, how stark is this contrast. So, you know, there are actually several initiatives within the community in the Salesforce community is very, vibrant and Salesforce community is unlike really any technical community your technology community. I've been around people are very passionate about the platform that very passionate about helping other people, and there are two groups specifically that are really working to help close. These gaps one is one called pep up tech, which was. They were actually recognized quite a bit at dream four steals horses annual conference this year in in highlighted quite a bit in their job and their goal and their existence is to really help folks that are in under represented categories.

"Role with him for about six years. We grew a small consulting company and Salesforce forces growth was tremendous even back then that company was sold to a larger consulting company called the Perio where I spent a few years and then about four years ago. You know, I saw an opportunity to really take. A lot of the experience that I gained through those those consulting companies and now help other consulting companies and other Salesforce customers kind of do more. And so that was really the Genesis of tin K. And you know, it was kind of the combination of the demand growing Salesforce economy, which has just been tremendous as well as this kind of gig economy, which you hear a lot of people talk about are the future of work. And so really that's what we do at ten KFI is we are trying to really bridge that gap between the companies who so desperately need, Salesforce talent and can't find them. And then a lot of the freelance CEO's worth talent that's out there that may have a hard time finding customers or finding study business.

If you're in the right direction is everything happens for raisin almost isn't it. It does. And you know, as I mentioned, this is not an uncommon story in Salesforce ecosystem, you know, this young technology in the grand scheme of technology the company's been around since ninety nine so it's not quite twenty years old yet. But not many people went to school to learn Salesforce. Right. You don't set out on your career saying I'm gonna grow up to be a Salesforce professional. So a lot of people have fallen into it by accident. Right. You know, their their sales team bought it and kinda got thrown into their lap. Or they were the secretary or executive assistant that the executive said now you own this or you know, someone like me who had maybe done other technologies and this had fallen onto their plate and looked promising. And so you know that it's not an uncommon story. Lots of stories like this, which I think is also one of the great things about Salesforce is it has really helped empower a lot of careers for people who you know, may have reached a dead end in another part of their career or help supercharge.
