When is a software company not a software company?

From the newswire: Atos shareholder calls for chairman to resign. On paper and from a certain perspective, Atos’ business focus sounds great—among many other things, they’re a Platinum SAP partner, with lots of products and services to sell, and a ton of big-name customers. But peel back a layer or two… Years ago, when DBS (Dun & Bradstreet Software, and, yes, I go back that far) started their own consulting arm, a very wise man observed to me that you can’t sell both software and services—your focus and your bottom line have to be one or the other.

Later, Jen and I began to talk shop a bit more after she joined Fuel50, which is where she was most recently. […]

In the past, success was often defined by things like job title, salary, and level of education. While those things are still important to many people, they are no longer the only things that matter.
