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....

...It must be a goose.

While that might not make much sense, take a look at Tim McElligott's blog from the TMF-Nice show.

There are lots of organizations who believe that they are "every down players" ( ie great defensive linemen and linebackers in American Football ). However, they are really good pass rushers or good run defenders, but not both. How do you tell the telecom service provider industry:

"You're a good pipe provider, but not an end-to-end player...."

ABI Research has a new report out on location based services (LBS). I agree with them that LBS is getting ready to blossom as a wireless technology and service offering.

However, I didn't like how they were assuming that most of the value would be flowing from the application developers via telecom service providers. I believe that the Google ( ...and other yet to be determined "open garden" providers... ) version of LBS will be a much stronger play than those offered by the established telecoms. Google was not listed as a part of ABI's competitive landscape. That is something to be considered when evaluating this particular piece.
