The ITSP Polycom Problem

March 28, 2014

I was at the Dali Museum to see the Andy Warhol exhibit. Great piece of history, btw. The Dali rotates the art, so it was my first time seeing this painting called Telephone in a dish with three grilled sardines. It got me thinking of a couple of things.

No More Paying For Attention

March 25, 2014

The overall view of the Hosted VoIP industry is not unlike the aspirin aisle at the supermarket: lots of choices that all seem the same. [see photo below] How do you get the attention of the channel partner or the customer amid that noise?

Every booth at every trade show says the same thing. Many even have similar colors.

Is Mark Cuban Right About the NFL?

March 25, 2014

The owner of an NBA team and start-up shark on Shark Tank, Mark Cuban is no stranger to controversy. This week he made a comment about the NFL's greed will lead to their implosion (in ten years).

A few posts this month from trade shows where I just wanted to point out some unusual marketing, like TelePacific having pop-a-shot basketball games in their booth. Swoosh!

Telesphere and BroadSoft are unveiling a massive 8-foot-tall, 3,200 pound aquarium developed by the creative team of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing from Animal Planet's hit show, "Tanked." Representatives of Telesphere tooke part in filming an episode of "Tanked" that will air on the Animal Planet Network in April. So telecom hits reality TV.

What Can You Learn from Target?

March 17, 2014

The credit card breach at Target will be a multi-billion dollar debacle for Target. So many people don't even realize that it wasn't just target; Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and other stores also were hit. Lesson 1: consumers are usually misinformed.

In our text based society, people have no attention span.

When IT Skills Outrun Your Staff

March 17, 2014

Today, technology is not only changing so fast, but it is becoming pervasive and specialized. We have come a long ways from Novell networking and Windows 95. Today, a Cisco certificate or a Microsoft MCSE doesn't begin to cover all of the subjects that the IT department has to handle. Not just Linux and Apple O/S, but how many versions of Windows do you have to support - XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1.
