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

Collision of Titans

November 23, 2015

The Monitoring Master Move

November 20, 2015

This week marks the second master agency that has decided to get into monitoring. It seems like a bold move to go from back office sales support to resemble a NOC (network operations center).

In the case of Telarus, they bought the company and are pushing it out to their partners. Telarus has some IT skills in the software space - building and running GeoQuote.
