eBay & PayPal Combine Strategy on Open Platform Push (API’s)

PayPal announced it is launching a new open platform business for third-party developers made up of the assets of both eBay and PayPal platforms. Welcome to "the new eBay," as executives called it last week during Analyst Day, when they told analysts PayPal would become bigger than eBay in the next 3 - 5 years. eBay had signaled such a move last week when eBay Chief Technology Officer Mark Carges outlined a vision of the future of retail, both online and offline, and said the synergies across eBay's businesses were clear. "We believe our ecommerce and payment platforms together can enable retailers to grow their businesses," Carges said. "An open ecommerce platform means that we have more opportunity than ever." When asked whether the merging of the eBay and PayPal programs would mean eBay would open its platform to a greater extent, spokesperson Johnna Hoff said today's announcement was meant to provide context to the new joint platform business unit and the joint eBay/PayPal Innovate 2011. More news to come as this important project proceeds further over the next couple of months and information about future investigative paths arise from these unique synergies.

Agreeing to give a reference on someone is a serious obligation and responsibility because that executive is now depending on you to provide a favorable account of their work performance.  Most often executives who ask you don't ask what are you going to say about my weaknesses or mistakes.  They naturally assume that your long-term friendship and desire to see them succeed will rule the day and in some cases they're legitimately right.  However, when making this commitment you also have a responsibility to make sure you don't overextend your support and help put them in a position to fail.  And if the executive conducting the reference is extremely thorough, then you will be reviewing the executive’s weaknesses and strengths.
