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....

If you are a long-term reader of my writings, you know that I have degree of respect for the work of Michael Porter and his thoughts on competitive advantage. In particular, I like the "Five Forces" model that describes the competition in an industry.

Carol Wilson talks about a recent study that shows how even if you are a first mover in industry that your competitors can still have an advantage. The CFI Group study talks about how traditional telecom providers (ie Qwest, Verizon, etc) have a higher "trust" factor than cable providers (ie Comcast, TimeWarner) for the same services even though the cablecos have been providing those services longer.

While I have an irrational dislike of any organization that owns the remains of TCI Cable in Colorado ( read not one thin dime of pay tv budget will go TCI... err... AT&T Broadband... err... Comcast ); I find it interesting that other consumers have the same opinion from their cableco experiences.... It shows how far cablecos need to grow to provide their bundled services.
