Lippis and Kerravala on the New Communications Industry Structure
Zeus Kerravala and I discuss the new industry structure, which is emerging thanks to Microsoft´s entry into the communications market this past June. Some of the topics covered:
- Avaya has a new executive management,
- Microsoft and Nortel form a bold new Innovative Communications Alliance,
- Mitel plans an IPO,
- Siemens Communications has one foot with Microsoft
- Cisco stays the course for now.
What will be new communications development platform (SOA, .net, SONA?). What should you do if you´re in deployment mode, planning or operating a converged network? Which firms will survive and which ones will wither? As always you will receive straight talk advise when you listen to this industry roundtable Lippis Report podcast.
