FinancialForce held its first big time user conference in Las Vegas last week, headlined by new CEO Tod Nielsen. The company seems to be telling us that it is adjusting course in an effort to create a new category aligned with enterprise resource planning, but very much for this century. The key concept is services, which must be explained.

A new study finds the city’s rising minimum wage means low-wage workers are getting paid more but working fewer hours. Is it right? As the minimum wage goes up in Seattle–with with workers now required to make as much as 15 an hour, and all workers set to make that much by 2021–the city has become a bellwether for other communities that are looking to raise their minimum wage or have one already scheduled. Instead of arguing about economic theory, we can finally look at real data. One recent report found that the changes haven’t led to a loss in jobs in food service, a key industry for low-wage jobs. But another new study says that the effects are more complicated: While the overall number of restaurant jobs might not have changed much, the researchers believe that low-wage workers in the city are working fewer hours.

An on-screen presence makes Amazon’s voice assistant harder to ignore. This is embarrassing to admit, but I probably use Amazon’s Echo speaker to brew coffee more than anything else. Being an insufferable Aeropress snob involves precise timing while juggling a few different tasks–measuring, preheating, grinding, pouring, plunging–so asking Amazon’s Alexa assistant to set a timer tends to be easier than pulling up an app on a smartphone.Read Full Story
