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this blog which started as a team blog for the IBM Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) Telecom team no longer represents IBM in any shape or form.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. Now as an independent Telecom architect, 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.
Guilty of not posting what I should have over the past few weeks. First a quickie - IBM's nominations in the TeleManagement Forum excellence awards for this year have dropped down to two, that is to say, IBM has made the finalist lists for two categories:
- Business Innovation award
- Industry Leadership award
While it's a shame we didn't make the cut for the Solution Excellence award (I am not sure which solution was nominated) I am still proud that we've made the finalist cut for two categories. If you are a TMF member - please go and vote at http://www.tmforum.org/ExcellenceAwards2010/Finalists/8647/Home.html#1
(you choose who you want to vote for, you can probably guess who I voted for!
I have been working on a post about our newly announced Industry Framework for the Media & Entertainment Industry - you should expect that post to come along soon! (oh and don't forget to vote in the TMF awards!)
