Since 2005, JAA’s Analyst Blog has served as the chronicle for Jon’s involvement with – and thought leadership about - the telecom/tech sector, and more recently the smart grid space. With the advent of social media, Jon’s blog is now just one of several conduits for his work, but remains the primary channel for staying current with JAA. Signing up to follow the blog is easy – just provide your email in the box in the right margin of this page.

If you’re new to JAA’s blog, this is where you’ll find ongoing independent analysis of the IP communications sector, namely Unified Communications, Collaboration, Cloud Communications, VoIP, Telepresence/Video, IT Security, Social Media, Contact Center/Customer Care, User Experience, Internet of Things, Future of Work, Millennials, OTT, Channel Partners and other topics.

In addition, Jon posts thought leadership related to smart grid, such as Smart Homes, Smart Cities, Electric Vehicles and Renewable Energy. Jon also blogs occasionally about his personal passions; namely playing music, baseball, photography and popular culture. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do more personal blogging, but if there’s an appetite for that, make your voice heard.
