    54,880 views - Posted June 10, 2014 by Dave Labuda Founder, CEO and CTO - MATRIXX Software

    BSS transformation as we know it is over – bold statement or fact of life?   It’s time to reassess the hype, mainly led by traditional BSS suppliers, that transformation of the BSS stack is an exercise of cutting and pasting legacy components with newer versions. This is primaril...

    There is no doubt as to the potential value that big data can bring enterprises but some are still grappling with the business case to justify the investment. Calculating the return on investment (ROI) on big data can be likened to sticking a finger in the air to determine which way the wind is blow...
