Lessons from the NGC15

December 10, 2015

At the NextGen Cloud Expo yesterday, Tony Hawk was the featured keynote. Not exactly a prized speaker, he did have interesting vignettes about his life. He kept doing the skate-boarding thing even when he was broke and making no money at it. It was his passion - and he eventually made the big payday.

The Channel Nepotism

December 9, 2015

At NextGen Cloud Expo (what is the nextgen cloud?), we were talking about all of the musical chairs in the channel programs in 2015. So many. Maybe you noticed the changes, but more likely you probably noticed the pattern.

The pattern is that a channel executive moves to a new company and he takes his cronies with him.

Non-competitive Broadband

December 8, 2015

The FCC defines broadband at 25 Mbps by 3 Mbps. At that speed, most Americans have one choice: cable!

How funny is it that telcos had DSL in the Lab in the late 1960s and didn't roll it out until Covad, Northpoint and Rhythms basically forced their hand. They then pushed all 3 into bankruptcy to be the sole high speed Internet providers -- except for a smattering of independent ISPs that they would kill off later.

Host.Net CEO Retires

December 4, 2015

I remember back when it was BroadbandOne, founded in 1996 and mainly sold bandwidth nationally. Then the company bought WV Fiber. Then it became Host.Net with a pretty impressive data center in Boca Raton, Florida. A lot has happened - and now CEO Jeffrey Davis is retiring.

The Butterfly Effect of Cord Cutting

November 30, 2015

Cord cutting is real. It is affecting more than just the cablecos.

The cablecos realize that they have to switch to broadband, voice and other product lines to counter the revenue loss from TV. CableOne CEO, Tom Might, gave a presentation at Wells Fargo that follows a speech he gave a year prior.

News Tidbits Part 2923

November 30, 2015

A lot of lit tidbits popping up. If you follow me on twitter, then you may have seen some of this already.

Cyber Monday crashed Target.com, but Tom Peters' fans crashed dropbox. Tom Peters put out an email to subscribers this morning with links to 14 chapters of Tom's top topics including Excellence, Execution and more.

A Little Channel Conflict

November 24, 2015

I know this happens but I have never seen it in print. Channel Conflict is a big issue. It is basically the conflict between the direct sales team and the indirect sales team. This conflict is so bad that some programs allow for teaming - that is when the channel partner works with a direct salesperson of the carrier and they both get credit/compensated for a sale.

The Move Into Canada

November 24, 2015

RingCentral has a deal in place with TELUS, a telecom company like AT&T in Canada. 8x8 has had its Virtual Office suite in Canada since 2013. Today, Zayo announced that they were buying Allstream, a division of MTS in Canada. Allstream has a 35,000 km fibre-optic network and provides communications services to enterprise clients including the Canadian government.

Collision of Titans

November 23, 2015

As the hype would have you believe, the world is moving to the cloud. Well, it is happening, just not as fast as many say (or hope). For one thing, migrating software to the cloud is not as simple as some make it out to be. It takes planning, testing and executing.
