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....

For many years, there has been a move toward "one throat to choke" when it comes to implementations - both hardware and software. Software companies have been either building their implementation teams or tightly integrating with a systems integration partner. Now the telecom network hardware vendors are joining the game.

Michelle Donegon details a report from Caroline Chappell about how the hardware vendors have been making moves to take the service activities ( and associated revenue ) back from the systems integrators. The hardware vendors, via Chappell, claim that this move will enable service delivery.

I think this is more about improving their revenue numbers for Wall Street. :)
