Powerful Quotes by Chip Delany

  • If you’re doing your job properly in sales, you’ve got to be offering education when a new product comes along. You’re not just saying, “This product is amazing,” or “We’re doing this new thing.” You’re telling the full story of why this is important for someone’s business in the long term.
  • Being able to sit down with people inside firms is the biggest thing that I’m hoping comes back because, ultimately, that gets us all back on track to the status quo.
  • The ultimate [eDiscovery] platform is something which is an organism of intelligence inside a corporation: You don’t have data silos.
  • Data is a capital asset.
