CRM budgets are less protected. So far, CRM has survived the economic slowdown, but pressure is building. CRM is dangerous. Failure rates are rising, mistakes will be seen by everyone and the impact on the enterprise will be greater. CRM is still a fantasy in most enterprises. CRM done at a department level suboptimizes the customer relationship. CRM can provide a fundamental competitive advantage. Those enterprises that succeed are reaping substantial long-term benefits. CRM should benefit both the supplier and customer. Few initiatives provide any benefit to the customer.

For some years, commentators have been predicting the 'convergence' of the Internet and
mobile industries. But what does convergence mean? Is it just about mobile phones providing
Internet access? Will the coming together of two huge industries actually be much more about
collision than convergence? In truth, there are lots of possibilities about what convergence
might mean, such as:
• Internet providers also supply mobile phones - or vice versa, of course.
• The user's mobile phone is replaced with a palmtop computer.
• The mobile Internet leads to a whole range of new applications.
