In this live recording from IFS World Conference 2018, Jon Reed and usual podcast suspect Brian Sommer review the first two days of the IFS World show, explaining to listeners why this industry-focused ERP solution is worth watching. They kick around the IFS push to modernize platform and partners, and look at whether this approach will work for existing and net new customers. The guys also hash out Brian's Twitter beef with new IFS CEO Darren Roos, and why the two of them differ on IFS' emphasis on the servitization of manufacturing. They hit on what IFS needs to accomplish this year, and finally, the guys share a few quick anecdotes on their failed quest for good BBQ and their successful/problematic TexMex achievement. Note: Jon and Brian also taped a "halftime show" of the spring enterprise software conference season - look for that one next week. Yes, you can get Busting the Omnichannel on iTunes.
