Ray Poynter on a rugby pitch

The similarity between winning at Rugby and winning with a Platform and Service combination

In many organizations, there is tension between the DIY/SaaS provision of software and the provision of services. The conversation tends to rotate around whether we are a platform or are we providing services. However, this misses the point about synergy, a concept often referred to as SwaS – Software with a Service. I want to highlight the synergy by talking about my favorite team sport rugby.
