Hurd's Resignation and HP's Odd Half-Decade

August 7, 2010

Some big news yesterday in the world of technology had to do with Mark Hurd and his resignation following a sexual harassment investigation where he was not found guilty. The woman allegedly involved with Hurd was a former contractor and according to a close source there was no romantic or sexual relationship between the two. What is unusual though is the company on a conference call characterized their relationship as "close" and "personal."

I am at a bit of a loss to understand exactly what I just wrote means.

Book ITEXPO Now to Save Hundreds

August 4, 2010

Today is the last day to save hundreds or thousands on registration

We have been seeing an incredible stream of registrations for ITEXPO and related events and as is always the case, my team has done its absolute best to make this show better than ever. At TMC we take education extremely seriously and in a trade show market where companies regularly fold up and go away, we are proud to be putting on industry-leading events for 24 years.

What I have personally learned over the years is if you provide the best education to your customers with a wide enough array of topics, your attendees walk away very happy.

Sorry to my Readers

July 20, 2010

I have been preoccupied with a host of initiatives which have kept me from writing today. Not only that but I owe my editors columns for Customer Interaction Solutions Magazine and I believe Unified Communications as well. We also have a number of companies visiting TMC tomorrow so I expect to be spending time with them digesting new products and absorbing the latest happenings.

If that werent enough I am also deeply involved with my team in helping to produce the best ITEXPO ever with collocated conferences which are all related to tech and telcom and should be a perfect attration to the thousands of show attendees who want to keep up with the markets in this ever-changing tech world.

As a reminder, ITEXPO is going to be held October 4-6 in Los Angeles, CA and you may register here.

Stay tuned, I will be back soon.

June 29, 2010

OK - it is kind of weird to call it "invitation only" if I am blogging about it but somehow it doesn't seem right to not let you know that TMC will be on-hand in Silicon Valley performing a host of video interviews with the best and brightest minds in tech and communications at the San Jose Marriott Tues, JULY 13th - Thurs, JULY 15th.

A sample screen shot of an interview which took place just outside of Washington DC

Thanks to cloud computing, cloud-based storage, cloud-based contact centers, cloud communications and a mix of other services hosted in data centers worldwide, the data center market is booming. A solid article about the market comes courtesy of David Gross at Seeking Alpha.

Coincidentally I will be moderating an Interactive Intelligence sponsored webinar focusing on cloud communications at 2:00pm EST today (don't worry; it is archived if you get to this post later or are busy at this time). I hope to see you online- in the mean time here is an excerpt from the above-mentioned article.

TMC Gets Written up in Norwalk Hour Newspaper

June 4, 2010

I am fortunate that I get to speak reporters about my company from time to time and whenever I do I always worry until the article comes out. Reporters are busy (speaking from experience) and they don't always get all the facts right. I always blame myself when this happens - after all if you communicate in a clear, concise manner with an organized, structured system of segueing between topics, it is much easier to follow.

Personally I have sat in briefings with charismatic tech leaders who spend 30 minutes talking and when I look at my notes, I wonder what the heck was said.
