Notes from Metaswitch Forum

May 13, 2014

Day 2 for me at the Metaswitch Forum 2014 in New Orleans. Here are some of the notes and tips:

Bryan Grimm of Metaswitch says that NOW is the time for Hosted PBX sales. The Big Opportunity is now.

What is Innovation?

April 22, 2014

I hear the word bantered about a lot especially by media, C-Level execs and government types. This week it was the "Innovation Economy". well, that makes sense since the USA's only lead globally has been in innovation, but the rest of the world is catching up due to this thing called the Internet (an invention of ours, btw).

New and improved isn't really innovation.

The Wearable Tech Futures

April 21, 2014

Amid all the noise about the growing Internet of Things market comes the announcement that Nike is disbanding its FuelBand team.

Nike and Adidas were at the Wearable Tech Expo / FAST in December. To see this announcement, speculation would be that wearable tech is not promising. I don't think that is it.

The Channel is Shrinking

February 20, 2014

According to a study reported by Channelomics, "A new report by the Kauffman Foundation, a non-profit economic think tank, finds the number of U.S. technology companies five years or younger has fallen precipitously compared to the peak level in 2001."

One reason cited is consolidation. No kidding.

There's No Such Thing as Free

January 29, 2014

There are costs to delivering service. There really isn't a free. I get asked a lot about WebRTC. It's a free client for video conferencing. In a way, yes it is.

Telecom Tidbits Part 133

January 16, 2014

Master Agency Telephony Partners has re-branded as Acuity Technologies. Why the re-brand? More than just the shift to cloud, the industry will be just one - IT and telecom - "a comprehensive technology infrastructure company that can provide solutions covering the entire spectrum of technology." That's what Acuity CEO Josh Anderson is delivering and the name change is just a way to showcase that.

Panterra Networks will be unveiling a new data storage service at ITEXPO.

Coolest Thing about 3-D Printing

If Mobile is Everything

December 2, 2013

Fred Wilson repeats that Mobile is Eating the World. It might be just what I am reading (my influence bias). It's all about tablets or smartphones. Where does that leave your business in 2 or 3 years?

The Future is Now

November 22, 2013

I got to listen to Jack Uldrich keynote the Bradenton (FL) EDC event last night (thanks to Bright House Networks). Uldrich is a futurist and a good speaker.

When you examine all the trends that are happening right now - nanotech, M2M, 3D printing, robotics, computing power & devices, ubiquitous access to the Internet, genomics - we are the beginning of the revolution - not the middle or anywhere close to the end. These things are just beginning.

Big Data is Big Smoke

October 1, 2013

Over 10 years ago, a grocery chain in the Northeast, Stop & Shop, launched the customer loyalty or savings card. You know that card you need to swipe to get the advertised savings. After a couple of years they pulled the card for three reasons: one, the customers weren't happy with it; two, state law required the store to give everyone the savings anyway (if they asked for it); and three, they weren't getting a return on the data.

We didn't have Big data back then.
