What About IT Automation for Telecom and Mobility?

IT Cost & Asset Automation Business analytics is the fastest growing category of global IT investment according to Forrester Research. This blog was originally written in 2012, at the time; a study done by Nucleus Research from 2012 found that for every dollar a company invested in business analytics it earned $10.66, that’s a 1066% ROI. In 2014, they found that the ratio increased from $10.66 to $13.01. That is 122% more return in 2 years. This indicates that there is an increasing trend for Business Analytics. Not too shabby. A Telecommunications and IT Management system can provide advanced analytics along with a powerful engine to automate tasks. As companies turn to data and analytics they gain significant visibility into the overall performance of the business. The manual process of turning these insights into action can be an arduous management task on its own.

Have you tried Wi-Fi? It can save you unwanted telecom costs...

on November 24, 2011 8:30 AM By | Chris Thierry | 0 Comments | Wireless management Roaming Wi-Fi
Author: Kim Leahy No Wireless Data Plan? Use WiFi... And I thought I only had to worry about the meaning of BFF, LOL or OMG…… I work in the industry but it still took my children to point out the Wi-Fi option available on the smartphone devices.   Sometimes we get too used to doing things by rote without considering changes around us that are transformational.   We are truly creatures of habit and we adhere to the adage; “ If is isn’t broke don’t touch it.”  But when it comes to technology, if organizations do not constantly review the industry changes that are shaping the way we conduct business, “broke” isn’t the issue, but “going broke” is!

What to Look for in a Telecom Lifecycle Management Solution?

on November 3, 2011 8:00 AM By | Chris Thierry | 0 Comments | Telecom Lifecycle management TLM
The Power of Managing your Telecom Lifecycle I’ve read several papers on the subject of Telecom Lifecycle Management (TLM) and about the demands this has on a company supporting this expense. I came across an old article that I found interesting.  After looking at it briefly I found it funny that although technology has evolved over the years, so has the complexity of it.  I live in a world where devices are supposed to make my business life easier but in a lot of ways it hasn’t.  The complexity of the networks behind these devices is taking a life of their own. What has evolved through this complexity is “How to manage the Telecom Lifecycle?”
