Posted by Scott Draeger on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 19:21
In reviewing the 2019 Aspire Leaderboard, there are several ways to look at the results. With 23 competitors fighting hard to define the CCM market in a time of change, the lens through which you look at the results is important. Some companies are focusing on doing a simple thing very well at scale. Others are pursuing an acquisition strategy to add capabilities to a growing portfolio.

I am writing today’s blog entry on my flight to Xplor 2019 in Las Vegas, excited to kick off Conference season.
