Why Your Marketing is Hurting Your Sales

October 18, 2015

I registered for a white paper and got dumped into the email automation bucket. And then the phone calls started.

I registered a domain and the emails poured in. I mark them as a spam and delete them.

Really Big Mergers

October 16, 2015

Dell-EMC, Charter-TWC-BHN. Anheuser-Busch InBev-SAB Miller. Big mergers usually amount to nothing good for customers. It is really about getting bigger, scaling up, too big to fail, but too big to execute.

So Much M&A to Keep Up With

October 15, 2015

I cannot keep up with all the merger and acquisition activity happening right now. Here is some of it.

A big one for me is that Accenture acquired Cloud Sherpas. Sherpas was one of the largest Google integrators.

News Tidbits Part 2920

October 15, 2015

Alan Percy at Dialogic has a nice write up of our panel about Open Source for service providers from ITEXPO. The panel discussion with Dialogic, XO and Netsapiens was so good that I am sorry it was not recorded. Read it here and at the end of the post sign up for the study data.

Fiber to the Tower is still driving growth for RLECs. Fairpoint is even seeing a need to start a construction division.

Gender Diversity Benefits

October 9, 2015

The panel I moderated at CVX Expo last week in Anaheim was original. Women in the Channel presented a discussion on Gender Diversity with Nancy Ridge (Vice President, Telecom Brokers and President & Co-Founder, Women in the Channel); Nicole Hayward (SVP of Marketing & Product Management at OnSIP Business VoIP) and Michael Oeth (CEO of OnSIP Business VoIP).

The slides have been published on Slideshare. Take a look.

Is Mobile the Answer for UC?

October 9, 2015

I moderated a session at ITEXPO West on profitability for VoIP Providers. Mind you, one panelist was Voxvalley who is a mobile app provider for ITSPs, but it seems that everyone thinks the only way to make money in VoIP is tied to the mobile phone. I disagree. If you think that the saving grace for your UC service is mobile, you are screwed.

As A Service

October 9, 2015

We have seen UC as a service, software as a service, Infrastructure and Platforms as a service, Desktop and even Disaster Recovery as a Service. What is next?

WAN as a Service seems to be popping up as the next synonym for dynamic bandwidth or SDN (software defined network). It is the name for SD-WAN or the replacement for MPLS.

A Couple of Things

October 6, 2015

While at the ITEXPO in Anaheim, I wanted to share a few things that happened.

Birch bought some of Sage Telecom's customers. From the Sage page, it looks like Residential base but there are probably some small business too. More inorganic growth.

Juniper is a Cable Pusher

October 6, 2015

Juniper Networks is now pushing its VAR partners into the cable channel, getting them to sell cable services. It is pitched as cable is the cable to connect to the cloud. [see webcast video here] Comcast Business was on the webinar but they pitched their sisters too.

"One of the first integrated programs is the Cable Business Service Program.

The Cable Triumverate

October 4, 2015

At a master agency, Microcorp One-on-One, the Cable 3 Sisters gave a presentation together. They have been sharing booth space for a couple of years - and presenting together for a while. This was my first view of it.

The push is on to fiber.
