What Do Buyers Want?

January 18, 2017

I have written about retails troubles before, but this KPMG global survey asks 18,430 consumers about their most recent online shopping experiences.

"Today's consumer no longer goes shopping, but is shopping, all the time and everywhere. And in a truly global online marketplace, competition is no longer limited to local shops during regular business hours. Consumers can easily buy from retailers and manufacturers located anywhere in the world - or from those with no physical retail locations at all," comments Willy Kruh, Global Chair, Consumer Markets, KPMG International.[KPMG]

Women in Tech at ITEXPO

January 17, 2017

On Wed., 2/8 at 3 pm, I will be moderating a panel on Women in Tech at ITEXPO in Ft Lauderdale. Why is a guy moderating this panel? Probably because I wanted to see this session at ITEXPO. When I took it to TMC, Dave and Erik told me to run with it.

The Fight to Make a Living in Cloud

January 17, 2017

How many articles and keynotes have been about how channel partners aren't jumping into cloud? I find it funny that it is mainly vendors and "consultants" saying this. It's Microsoft. It's every booth at CP Expo. It is the channel magazines (like here) and the channel consultants.

2 Lessons from Politics

January 13, 2017

At lunch today with a political consultant, we discussed the presidential campaign. Here are two things that drive me crazy about HRC and DNC that you should think about for your own company.

The first thing is that the same team that lost four years ago (in a primary) was probably not going to win you this election. While I understand loyalty, we are in politics and business to win.

Normalcy Bias

January 9, 2017

One of my favorite authors is Marcus Wynne, who is CEO of a cognitive neuroscience firm. On his blog, he espoused: "There's this thing from psychology ... which is called, I think, "normalcy bias." In sum it's the thinking that goes like this: "It hasn't happened to me, therefore it cannot happen." It's a presupposition which provides an unconscious (as in you don't even know you know/believe it) foundation for action and planning. The cure for it generally is a harsh one, when reality sticks it's sometimes ugly nose in and says, "Hey Sweet Cheeks?

Disruption Everywhere

January 9, 2017

Two articles demonstrate that no field is free from disruption. The first is about the Big Consulting business practice that is changing fast. The legal professional is also being disrupted and used as an example of why the consulting world will soon fall fate as well.

"Management consulting's fundamental business model has not changed in more than 100 years.

Two New VoIP Offerings

January 5, 2017

IDT is an international LD company doing about a billion bucks globally. Last year, it finally entered the Hosted VoIP world through its Net2Phone brand. Net2Phone launched in the channel. Net2Phone also launched an inbound service (like Google Voice or Citrix's Grasshopper) called PicUp.

Tidbits #2444 (Telecom and Otherwise)

January 4, 2017

There are too many VoIP and UCaaS providers. Consolidation is required in this space. I think UCaaS has to shift into Voice/Dial-tone (POTS replacement or SIP Trunking with some features) and some collaboration platform. The way it is now - replacing an on-premise PBX with a hosted one - isn't selling very well.

The Beginning of 2017

January 3, 2017

Wired has two articles about Amazon becoming an ISP; and Google FB Amazon taking over for the telcos.

"Put it all together and you can see a day when you're watching content that Google produced disseminated via infrastructure that Google owns on a phone that Google made using wireless service Google brokered." Amazon tried it and failed. Google's phones are nice, but the Fi service has done about as well as Google Fiber.

The opposition - the cellcos, the RBOCs, the ILECs - don't want to be just dumb pipes.
