Each month NWMAP Telecom likes to feature Telecom events that made it in the news or pertinent info to your need-to-know Telecom info. We haven’t updated this in a couple of months now so we’d like to start anew this month by sharing WHERE we get our news from.
Many sites have frequently updated Tech and Telecom info in abundance, but not all of it is pertinent to everyone. We focus on widespread news that benefits or affects many people. Lately we’ve been focusing on business, sales approach, and other aspects within the Telecom industry itself.
Some great daily info for CIO’s and even CEO’s is at the Harvard Business Review site under the “Blogs” section: http://blogs.hbr.org/ There is a lot of info here from leadership, sales approaches, innovation, and all the other buzz words of the day. Some of it is based largely on opinions, making it subjective in nature, However, there are some gems here so keep on the lookout. Our favorite this month was: http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2013/07/want_to_raise_prices_tell_a_be.html
We also like our Telecom carriers’ blogs. NWMAP has over 40 carriers we represent. These are specific to the needs of our agents at NWMAP and people in the industry. We like Intelysis Blog and Telecom Channel Blog:http://www.intelisys.com/press . Another good one is 8×8: http://www.8×8.com/AboutUs/8x8Blog.aspx
For the daily grind: http://www.networkworld.com/topics/unified-communications.html and http://www.infoworld.com/news. Oh, and one more:http://www.fiercetelecom.com/news . You’re going to find company specific news here and news on the big ones like Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and Google, etc.
