He makes some great comments on building a team for Saas management.  I'll be interested in his comments on how to transform present IT staff and/or how to build a Saas team.

Re: A Model of Career Reinvention
Thanks for sharing!  The interview is really interesting.  Can we submit questions in advance to see in the transcript if we can't make it to the chat?

Re: A Model of Career Reinvention
Trappler gave a very good interview for the site several weeks ago (go here:  http://www.saasintheenterprise.com/author.asp?section_id=1936&doc_id=241702& ).

I was struck by the common sense he brought to the topic of SaaS contracts. The IT aspect is the technical factor which needs to be understood. After that, you are back to the basics of contract negotiation.

A Model of Career Reinvention
Thomas Trappler is a great example of an IT professional that reinvented himself on the fly. He did not fight the hugely transformational changes the University was making. He adapted and today he is a critical asset to UCLA. He was not wedded to the status quo. There are lessons here for all of us, not just IT professionals.

The automatic feedback loop built in to SaaS is probably its least celebrated feature, but many SaaS providers see it as the key differentiator for SaaS providers and customers.

Where are the apps? Despite the hoopla, big-data is generating little in the way of innovative apps. Data analytics, big-data's crown jewel, is decades old.
