    24,101 views - Posted September 18, 2018 by Shashank Venkat Consultant - Cerillion

    23,772 views - Posted August 29, 2018 by Drew Jordan Solutions Architect, Director - Sigma Systems

    Sigma’s recent experience where we won the right to partner with Liverpool City Council has gotten me thinking a lot about Smart Cities.  Allow me, if you will, to clear out the messy desk drawer of thoughts I have on the subject.   Intelligent versus Smart When we tal...

    A study from Oracle and Future Workplace shows that 93% of people would trust orders from a robot at work, while all the respondents agreed that artificial intelligence (AI) will have a positive impact on their organizations. This comes on the heels of my last blog, in which I discussed w...

    Creating unique customer experience design with digital twins

    19,243 views - Posted August 2, 2018 by Deren Akpinar Marketing Director - Etiya

    When we hear the term “good old days” we imagine the “simpler” times with no smart phones or social media, when consumerism was at its lowest due to the limited choice of goods and services on offer.   During that period, when the options were limited and preferences w...

    Making the Platform-Play Pay

    19,835 views - Posted July 23, 2018 by Richard Doughty Business Development Director - Cerillion

    Digital transformation has a lot of interpretations. For some businesses it means digital delivery of products and services, for some it translates to offering a digital-first, omni-channel experience, and for others it is a way to save costs through automation.

    Stop with the fear and embrace the opportunity of AI for Ops

    18,217 views - Posted July 4, 2018 by Aaron Boasman - Patel Vice President, AI & Customer Experience - TM Forum

    There has been a lot of scaremongering about how many jobs will be lost due to artificial intelligence (AI) as well as how robots will control the world and man versus machine. This sounds very reminiscent of the Luddite movement of the 19thcentury, but the fear is unfounded now, just as it was then...

    Realizing Smart Cities in the Home of the Fab Four

    I have had my first chance to visit Liverpool a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been to Manchester, Preston and even Blackpool (several times, in fact) but never Liverpool. I did not visit just to go to find Penny Lane or snap photos in front of The Cavern Club. I was there do something a bit...

    How innovative is your AI?

    31,575 views - Posted June 8, 2018 by Ali Durmus Founding Partner, Executive Committee Member - Etiya

    As we discussed in our previous blog, it was hard to avoid the topic of artificial intelligence (AI) at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As happens with all new technologies, AI has certainly become the victim of hype, with companies of all shapes and sizes, and from all types o...

    Customers love unlimited data, but is it a sustainable model?

    5,346 views - Posted May 1, 2018 by Dominic Smith Marketing Director - Cerillion Technologies

    As someone who has championed simplicity as being key to the success of telecoms services, I find the debate about unlimited data plans a very interesting one.
