Sadly, I am no longer employed by IBM, so this blog which started as a team blog for the IBM Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) Telecom team no longer represents IBM in any shape or form. As I became the Chief Telecom Architect for IBM for the WebSphere brand worldwide, I continued to write posts. The WebSphere brand merged into the new Cloud brand in 2015 and I retained the same role working with Telcos all around the world to design software solutions to solve their business problems. I left IBM in 2017 and am now working for DGIT Systems
, a small IT company focused on helping Telcos be more agile through alignment with TMForum Frameworx - particularly for Order Management and Fulfilment solutions. My hope is to continue/resurrect this blog on Telecom business issues and technology.

Out of frustration with the MIA mobile interface, I am trying Skyfire instead
Ok, this is my first attempt at writing a blog post on the full web interface via Skyfire (a proxied browser for mobile devices similar to Opera Mini). I am using my Nokia e71. The big advantage of doing it this way is access to all the rich text options and images that are already uploaded to myDW. Let's test that by inserting an image... On second thoughts, that didn't work too well. I tried to insert an image, but to do that, you have to move the cursor from the text insertion mode so that I can click on the insert image button and Skyfire got a bit confused at that point... Oh well, just text then. That after all was all I would get with the mobile interface if it were available. The mobile interface is definitely faster though...
I'm off to Impact 2010 in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks time, then a couple of week after that, I am off to TeleManagement World at Nice, France - that's two conferences in three weeks - now that I've tested posting from my phone (without the Connections mobile interface) and I've proved the concept, I have a model that will allow me to post form the conference floors.
