Microsoft and Oracle: Strange Bedfellows | Ammirati on Innovation

1619 0

Each month, “Ammirati on Innovation” episodes will look at ways that the disruptive-startup mentality is spreading beyond young entrepreneurs to big established corporations. Serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and Carnegie Mellon B-school professor Sean Ammirati, who sits at the intersection of these high-change dynamics, provides insight.

Episode 3

In this episode, Sean and I talk about decision-making, from a couple of angles. First, we explore the choice that giant global corporations have to make when a new opportunity comes along. Namely, do we do this ourselves, or partner up to make it happen? We also affirm that companies can walk and chew gum at the same time— meaning that they need to care about customers AND users at the same time. Sean has a podcast called “Agile Giants,” where he interviews guests ranging from CEOs, CTOs, and VCs to authors. With that unique POV underpinning his thoughts on the subject, Sean tells us that Oracle and Microsoft teaming up together makes for strange bedfellows. Later, Sean reveals that knew he wanted to be a programmer from the age of seven (!!!).
