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....

A wise man once said:

Ain't no need to watch where I'm goin'; just need to know where I've been.

Tow_materUnfortunately that was a tow truck from a Disney Pixar movie…. While he was driving backwards… Not necessarily the best way to analyze your business or drive a car….err…tow truck. 

But the concept is still valid.  If you have knowledge of where you have been, you can help to re-trace your steps either anecdotally or analytically.

In this the geospatial analysis market is heating up with ESRI making an announcement to be included within the DataMarket in Windows Azure Marketplace.  Making geospatial  analysis available via the cloud, you can encapsulate both the location services and the location of the analysis.

This can be important in the area of operational business intelligence for the telecom industry when you start to think about optimizing truck rolls and other in person customer facing (B2B or B2C) activities.  This analysis can help with both time and coverage associated with scheduling crew activities.

Does your organization have the ability to analyze ‘truck rolls’ for distance optimization? time optimization? both? neither?
