Ribbon Perspectives19 - My Takeaways on BCStrategies

Every industry event is different, and no two companies respond to changing market conditions the same way. My latest conference was Ribbon’s Perspectives19 in Washington DC, and I came away with some strong impressions, but also some questions. My writeup was posted on BCStrategies on Friday, and in case you missed it, here’s the link.

Enterprise Connect 2019 - BCStrategies Podcast Recap

Enterprise Connect 2019 was so good that we’re still talking about it! Well, not exactly, but the BCStrategies team finally found a time last week to share our collective thoughts. Most of us have already said our piece - and my posts are easy to find here on my blog - but talking has a different vibe than writing, especially when we’re doing it as a group.

With that, our latest podcast is running now on the BCStrategies site, and if you’re wondering why Marty Parker says this year’s edition was the “best ever”, you’ll want to give this a listen.

Two New BCStrategies Podcasts - Looking Back on 2018 and 2019 Predictions

Been a backlog getting new content posted on BCStrategies, so I have a double-shot update to share here.

Regular followers should know that we try to do a podcast every other week or so, and that I’ve been a long-time contributor to the group. In late December, we usually do a year-in-review themed podcast, along with our outlook for the year ahead, and the stars lined up for both a few weeks back.

These podcasts have now been posted to the BCStrategies portal, and I hope you give them a listen. Here’s our Look Back on 2018 podcast, followed by our 2019 Predictions. As always, comments and sharing are welcome.

New BCStrategies Podcast - Vonage Analyst Event Takeaways

That was the topic for our latest BCStrategies podcast, and this time around, I was the moderator. Aside from having our usual mix of analysts and consultants, we had views on Vonage both from event attendees, along with consultants who have a working relationship with them.

The podcast has now been posted to our portal, so you can check it out here.

If that whets your appetite for more, the post includes links to coverage from fellow BCStrategies colleagues Blair Pleasant and Dave Michels.

Aside from that, I posted my own analysis of the event here on my blog.

Kudos if you get through all of that, but if you do, you’ll be the biggest expert on Vonage outside our little circle. :-)

Collaboration - The Next Generation - My Latest with BCStrategies

The main contributions I make to BCStrategies are monthly thought leadership pieces, and participating on podcasts when the stars line up. While this content reflects our ongoing insights into the collaboration space, we also produce sponsored content from time to time. This particular post is part of a series sponsored by AT&T, and while it went through extensive review at their end, the focus has remained entirely vendor/carrier neutral.

Of course, your opinion is what realy matters, but I think you’ll agree, it’s a pretty arms-length overview of where collaboration is heading. I hope you find it a good read - here’s the link - and as always your feedback is welcome.
