Vendors argue that office automation tools make employees more efficient. But they also make employees warier about their employers, said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis.
Pour Alan Pelz-Sharpe, fondateur de Deep Analysis, toutes ces fonctionnalités de collaboration sont et seront un ajout très intéressant pour la plateforme. Box, néanmoins, ne cherche pas à concurrencer Teams, Slack, ou Google Workspace – ce qui serait une erreur estime l’analyste.
For balance, Ron also spoke to Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis. “The next year is pivotal for Box,” he said. “It has to prove that it was right to win the proxy fight. To do that, it has to evolve the Box platform and grow steadily but surely and continue to carve out a niche for itself in the market.”
Enterprises focus far too much on simply doing things faster and cheaper, according to Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis. And when AI is used as a blunt force tool for this kind of project it will almost always fall short, he added. “AI when used correctly is similar to RPA (Robotic Process Automation),” Pelz-Sharpe said. “With RPA you can automate repetitive tasks. With AI you can automate human tasks at scale.”

“Data centers are going to be one of the most impactful things on the environment,” said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of analyst firm Deep Analysis. Companies can get swept up in the idea that they need an advanced deep learning system that can do it all, Pelz-Sharpe said. However, if they want to tackle a focused use case, such as automating a billing process, they don’t need an advanced system. These systems are expensive and use a lot of data, meaning they have a high carbon footprint. A dedicated system will have been trained on a much smaller amount of data while likely completing a specific use case just as well as a more general system. “Because it’s highly specialized, that AI has been trained on the most accurate possible data” while maintaining a small data set, Pelz-Sharpe said. A deep learning model, meanwhile, must churn through massive amounts of data to achieve anything.
“Oracle is the enterprise blockchain dark horse,” wrote Alan Pelz-Sharpe of U.S.-based research firm Deep Analysis in a research note. “Its stealthy but deeply funded and well-sourced entry into the market follows Oracle’s well-established pattern: the firm has a history of first dismissing new technologies, only to work quietly and then launch into the new market with full force. That being said, with Oracle’s deep roots in the supply chain, financial services, and government sectors, blockchain always made more sense for it to embrace than for some of its competitors.”
Indeed, Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of consulting firm Deep Analysis, said the Amazon GDPR fine shows a seriousness from the EU to regulate big tech not just for data breaches, but for data privacy practices. “GDPR was designed to protect personally identifiable information [PII] and ensure data privacy; it’s not limited to simply pulling data out of a jurisdiction without consent or in suffering a data leak,” he said. “It is about how you make use of PII, not just how and where you store it. That’s important and something all the big tech firms should have … already been aware of.”
Salesforce’s first foray into robotic process automation follows a major RPA acquisition by competitor Microsoft in May 2020 and remedies a weakness for Salesforce, which has lacked advanced automation capabilities, said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis. Servicetrace is a good fit for Salesforce, as their applications by default involve users undertaking a lot of repetitive tasks, and developers that build on the Salesforce platform often use third-party RPA tools. Alan Pelz-Sharpe Founder and principal analyst, Deep Analysis “Servicetrace is a good fit for Salesforce, as their applications by default involve users undertaking a lot of repetitive tasks, and developers that build on the Salesforce platform often use third-party RPA tools,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “Salesforce will be in a position to bundle this into their platform and most likely also offer it at a very low cost.”
Making the next iteration of a corporate intranet a Drupal website is an interesting way to solve that issue, Pelz-Sharpe said. Companies like Adobe and Acquia have enabled developers to create elegant apps for customers over the last 20 years and doing that for employees is the next logical step. Developers will likely see it as a new avenue to deploy and monetize their skills. “Corporate intranets are terrible places,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “Absolutely horrible things. Everyone’s got one, and no one likes them. Nobody wants to build another one, but everybody wants to build a better employee experience.”
