ROA and Moore

October 11, 2010

A new metric for Wall Street is Return on Assets. A company spends money on infrastructure, equipment, etc. (Assets) to produce goods or deliver service. Recently, I have been reading where the return on assets is decreasing sharply (and has been for some time).

Wasted Ad Dollars

October 11, 2010

So we have television ads running constantly from auto insurance carriers. State Farm, GIECO and Progressive are running massive ad campaigns that I have seen on TV shows, the NFL, web, and direct mail.

It's basically become too annoying. How can they all be cheapest?

Net-Heads Versus Bell-Heads

October 6, 2010

So I gave my talk today about Net-Heads versus Bell-heads at CVX (Channel Vision Expo). There is a shift happening in the telecom world. Not only is the world of IT and the world of Telecom blending, but technology is becoming even more pervasive in the business world. More technology means more problems and much more support is needed.

This Week at ITEXPO

October 6, 2010

I have been busy at ITEXPO so have not blogged this week. There are lots of familiar faces that I only get to see at ITEXPO East and West.

There has been a lot of content at ITEXPO: at least 13 sessions going on at any given time. 4G, SmartGrid, ChannelVision Expo, MSP World, Social CRM, and more, including the usual ITEXPO tracks. A lot to take in.

What if HP Became an MVNO?

October 1, 2010

All the talk about the Android versus Apple platforms has been interesting, but it leaves out the Blackberry, which actually puts out some rugged, well-liked devices. And there is a sleeper in the corner. That sleeper is HP.

EarthLink Acquires Deltacom

October 1, 2010

I had to check the calendar to make certain it was October 1 and not April 1 when I read the headline that EarthLink bought Deltacom.

Deltacom has a lot of fiber in the Southeast - 35 metro rings and 16,400 total route miles of fiber across 14 states - that generates about $440M in annual revenue. That revenue comes from 32,000 SMB customers. EarthLink will combine this with its New Edge Networks subsidiary.

What to Ask Your Prospective VoIP Provider

September 29, 2010

If you are a VAR or telecom agent about to pick out a strategic partner to be the VoIP Provider that you work with, here are some things to ask the execs.

Are you a CLEC? It isn't a requirement to be a CLEC to deliver VoIP. However, if not, E-911 and porting will be done by a third-party.

The Channel and IP Comm

September 29, 2010

I presented on a webinar for the Technology Channel Association today titled How to SELLECOM Hosted PBX. We had a good turn out and many questions (which I appreciate).

One question was why I would suggest that the agent NOT ask for the bill. When selling IP Communications, it isn't about cost savings.

The Mobile Ecosystem Battle

September 28, 2010

Just finished recording a webinar for COMDEX-Virtual on Mobility + The Cloud = Convergence in Telecom. Khali Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of Phone+ magazine was on the panel with me. I shared this article her because it was relevant. Now I want to share it with you along with my thoughts.

Americans Agree the Internet is Working

September 23, 2010

"Hart Research Associates conducted a national survey finding that opposition to government Internet regulation remains high with more than 75 percent of respondents agreeing that the Internet is currently working well and over 55 percent stating that the federal government should not regulate the Internet at all." From Broadband for America.

A couple of things:

Sample size: 800 voters. Not much of a cross-section of "225M registered voters.
