Synopsis For Monthly Features
December 2015 issue of Comms Business
Preview of 2016
Preview of 2016 Comms Business takes a peek over the horizon at what we can expect to see in the channel next year. We seek to hear from key players on their views on how markets will fare and what applications are likely to be hot in the next 12 months. We are not seeking product mentions – just opinions on markets and likely trends.
In articles this year Comms Business Magazine has taken a close look at supplier provisioning portals. Everyone tells us they have the best portal on the planet so we tested some of them. Those we tested were very good. Others we asked to test out became suddenly ’not quite ready’. In this article we will comment on those we have examined and highlight the best elements and features from them. Additionally, those channel suppliers we have not spoken to are encouraged to provide us with details of their portals and let us know why they believe their portal is so special.”
Clearly we would love to hear from resellers about their experiences with vendor portals. Who do they think has got it right/wrong and why.
The Mobile Office – How practical is it?
We used to talk a lot of hot air about fixed mobile convergence (FMC) but that became yesterday’s news with the rise and rise of the smartphone and other connected devices such as tablets. Let’s face it you can do most things and access most data sources whilst on the move these days – provided you have a decent connection.
So we ask the questions…
• What do you lose by having a Mobile Office?
• On the other hand – what do you gain by having a Mobile Office?
