A new name and a (slightly) new direction. Telco talk will add Business Process Management within the Telco OSS/BSS arena to the potential subjects we'll cover here. The old Industry Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) team's role remains an important part of IBM's Telecom strategy, so I will probably still cover partner capabilities and content here. I know the blog is pretty much about telco, but I reserve the right to comment on other industries as well :-) I plan to talk about resources that are available to IBM Business Partners, some of the latest issues we are seeing in Telecom, some discussion of IBM software technology and some thoughts on IBM's Smarter Planet initiatives.
Funny sign at Celcom Malaysia
I've met with Celcom (a Telco in Malaysia) a few times this year, they have a funny sign in
the lift well of every floor... So much for all the IBM sales staff
that were with me!
Apologies for the quality of the photo - I only had my phone camera with me at the time.
