John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Andrew Farrell has an interesting article about Motorola. Farrell mainly talks about the profitability of the cell phone unit... or lack of profitability.

I believe the underlying message has more to do with companies being content with a product and not innovating. Motorola rode the RAZR for all it was worth. However, the rest of the handset manufacturers caught up and past Motorola. Apple (and no this isn't the mainstream media mandated iPhone reference....) is a good example of a company that does not settle for the status quo. While this probably has more to do with the driven nature of Steve Jobs and the culture that he has created than it does with corporate strategy, I firmly believe that companies that continue to innovate will maintain leadership. Those that allow themselves to rest on their laurels will slip behind the leaders.
