Had a chance for a nice chat with Sam Herb, who, like me and Don Clark and Bob Jones and Peter Martin and Wade Mattar and lots of other people in this industry qualify for membership in the bull elephant lodge…we’ve been around the industry for longer than we’d like to admit, and we’ve seen the elephant…
Sam, who spent most of his career with Moore Products, is typical of the great “retreads” that have been attracted to the job of rescuing Invensys. He’s an invaluable resource, like Clark, like Jones, and others, because he’s forgotten more about marketing automation than most newbies will ever learn.
He is extremely bullish on InFusion, and we debated whether you can’t do it another way. I took the Advocatus Diaboli position, and he darn near had me convinced. What will convince me is to see more than one of the applications they have in the field (about 40 by the last count I heard) and see it working. I am, by profession, a Doubting Thomas.
