Well, just as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. After many years with Sprint, I have decided to take on a new challenge outside of the company, and must leave my post as a regular contributor to the Seamless Enterprise blog.
While it was only two years ago that we first started the Seamless Enterprise blog, it is amazing to see how far we have come. When the issue of a blog focused on IP, managed services, wireline, and convergence came up, some at Sprint wondered why it was needed, especially since it was going to be about more than *just* Sprint. After all, Sprint was already sharing our story through numerous other media ... and had spent a lot of time and money there.
Needless to say, those naysayers were wrong. Not only have we found a great following of people interested in this specific perspective, but Seamless Enterprise has become a great vehicle for sharing, collaborating, and communicating with like-minded telecommunications and technology professionals in the market. Those insights have been revelation, and I must thank each and every one of you for your participation, commentary, and friendship.
So, it is with a touch of sadness that I post this finale. I am sure I will be back to blogging someday, but for now, I will leave you in the more-than-capable hands of Heidi Gigler, Steve Coker, Dan Jacobson, Christopher Glenn and @UCVoices. But before I go...I did want to point you to three of my favorite past blogs. I hope you will find them just as interesting now as when they were first posted.
1) VoIP’s Death Debate is Missing the Point
2) Why MTIPS is a Big Deal
3) Unified Communications 2014: Six Predictions
