In Part I of my MWC19 review, I covered the changes to industrial structure, but no review of MWC is complete without one or two tech highlights from the telco side – one of my main professional loves: - Cloud Telco Cloud – finally seeing some statements of the gob-smackingly obvious emerging around the operator [...]

MWC19 Insights Part I: An industry in motion, but where to?

By |2019-03-22T14:18:57+00:0022 March 2019|Analysis, Blockchain, Cloud, Digital Transformation, Internet of Things, Mobile, Telecoms|

I’ve been in the telco industry in various guises for the last 22 years and attended mobile world congress since 2011 and usually I have left vaguely disappointed – this year I left hopeful for the industry – interestingly none of it had anything to do with the major announcements around 5G. Instead, there were [...]

British Army digital transformation blues, but it’s not all bad news

By |2018-12-15T13:23:31+00:0014 December 2018|Analysis, Digital Transformation|

Can organisations from across the market landscape learn from the British Army?

May 2018 saw Adobe Summit come to London - Adobe's annual event where it shows off the latest capabilities within its Experience Cloud. Adobe’s aim is to enable enterprise organisations to create great Customer Experiences (CX), but as they presented their various products, I couldn’t help but feel a disconnect with the experiences I have [...]

What is Cloud in 2018?

By |2018-05-21T11:57:22+00:0021 May 2018|Analysis, Cloud, Digital Transformation, Uncategorized|

Why are we even asking this question now?  Hasn’t cloud been well and truly defined in the scope of transformation? So what more is there to say?

“What’s at stake in the digital economy?” Tough question, right? Tough enough to keep you up at night? Maybe not.
