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this blog which started as a team blog for the IBM Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) Telecom team no longer represents IBM in any shape or form.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.
Thanks for visiting. Please comment on posts and leave your thoughts.
I will be away on leave, so no posts this week, but as a consolation prize, vskinner should be publishing an interview with me in her blog Yin meets Yang
Responding to Val's interview request has given me an idea for some future blog posts - publish interviews with some of our key Telco partners, those in the Service Provider Delivery Environment validation programme and those that I work with from a NEP or System integrator perspective. if you think this sounds like a good idea, please comment and let me know.
In the meantime, I am going to enjoy some time away from work. See you in a week's time.
