The Business Case for IP Transformation: Is Your Business Ready?

By: Steve Blackshaw, IP Transformation Product Line Management, Alcatel-Lucent

Delivering successful change programs is a significant challenge. Undertaking a Readiness Assessment speeds the launch of new IP services, reduces risks and aligns corporate objectives with your program.

The Challenge of Change…a true story

So your company is planning an all IP network. The CTO is delivering technology roadmaps, the COO is assessing the service portals, and network designers have been architecting for eight months. The program is well underway and people are now starting to plan the migration.

So, you start to scope out the effort required to deliver migration and calculate that it requires hundreds of resources to manage a switchover. You approach engineering to secure the resources, and are informed HR is managing a release program, remunerating engineers to leave the company. The same engineers that you need to deliver your program!

Sound familiar?

ShowStoppers @ CTIA Provides Close Up of Hertz's NeverLost

May 17, 2012

Even businesses who do the best in monetizing IP communications need ways to save time and effort. Even in an age where many of us use video and voice over IP at a desk a majority of the time, tools that help us manage our time on the road are a winner. Hertz exhibited its NeverLost Systems the Monday night before International CTIA Wireless 2012 began, and what a great way to kick it off!

Hertz's NeverLost enables customers to plan trips online and access them from the program in their Hertz rental car. Graham Weedon gives a live demonstration in this video during Showstoppers @ CTIA Wireless 2012 for a media team of Techistan magazine editor, AstraQom and DIDX podcasters, as well as a CED blogger and TMCnet blogger.

Kindle Fire Book Sauder Diaries Written by IP Communications Monetizer

March 20, 2012

 I have a secret. Open source geeks do sometimes monetize IP communications, and when they do it well, geeks and  non-geeks benefit. Michel  Vaillancourt is one of those.  

He is the CEO of JKL5 Group who offer  innovative telephony  services, but he is also a  steampunk book genre author.

ThingWorx CEO Russell Fadel on M2M and the Connected World

March 12, 2012

Last weekend my three-year-old grandson and six-year-old granddaughter helped me complete a CSI face reconstruction kit. Afterward, Simon held up a pan in front of his own face and asked the finished kit, "Why don't you talk to me, Mr. Face?" 

His request was not such a silly one. That is what M2M does. It assists things to talk to each other.

Who Thought of the New Popular Intellectual Property Conference for ITEXPO?

March 9, 2012

How many times have you thought of a better way of doing something, but you were afraid to rock the boat, especially if you are not the boss? Who gets made fun of the most? Those who speak up or those who are quiet? Taking a chance is something I am notorious for.

Monetizing IP Communications May Take Some Special Tweeting

March 7, 2012

LisaMarieDias's blog post "Who to Follow, and Not to Follow, on Twitter – That is the Question" caught my fancy because of what I agree with but even more so, what I don't agree with. The 51 comments she has received so far as just as controversial and thought-provoking as her original post. Twitter is used in serious manner for business, friendship, learning, teaching, collaborating, promotions and giveaways, newsfeed, video channel, photo gallery, comics, and more. 

Lisa's Twitter workshop clients ask her how to get more Twitter followers, and she replies, "Who should you follow?"

She shares concern over following a bunch of people who just spam.

Negative Plus a Negative Equal a Positive

February 7, 2012

"Nobody doesn't like Sara Lee," says the Euro-American conglomerate that sells hundreds of different, well-loved, pre-packaged, sugary concoctions. This means that everyone likes Sara Lee. Maybe not, but that's a cool slogan. Sometimes a negative plus a negative equal a positive. Likewise, negative things happen to us online and offline in business, personal and social situations, whether in our social networks, on a business forum, or in our workplace.

Frank Talk on Telecom Fraud with Humbug Labs' Eric Klein

January 25, 2012

Eric Klein, the VP of sales and marketing at Humbug Labs,is the telecom fraud expert that we interviewed in a recent podcast, sponsored by DIDX and AstraQom. He is one of the brilliant presenters scheduled for ITEXPO East 2012, specifically the Asterisk World and Cloud Communications events. Look in the ITEXPO East 2012 visitors' bag for the Humbug Labs free white paper that describes the evolution of telecom fraud. It includes a free trial code of Humbug services.

Much like business issues regarding infringment of intellectual property that I discussed with Mark Terry, companies are not prepared to prevent or to deal with telecom fraud. Most are too embarrassed to ever admit to experts when they suffer either.

Mark Terry, Esq. on Intellectual Property and Telecom Sourcing

January 25, 2012

Embarrassed that your company needs an intellectual property lawyer? 
It is better to be embarrassed and still secure the services of a lawyer in  cases where your company's intellectual property has been infringed upon or where your company has infringed upon another entity's intellectual property.  After less than a twenty minute conversation with Mark Terry, a patent and trademark law attorney, I am convinced that there are thousands in the IP (Internet-Protocol) Communications industry who need to understand their legal rights and responsibilities in this area of law.

Readers are invited to listen to the recording of a conversation with Mark Terry, a recognized expert in patent and trademark law, Mark Terry is regularly featured in publications and journals.

The attorney is a presenter in three panels during ITEXPO East's SUITS conference which is all about .
