Is HTML5 Disruptive?

The impact of HTML5 on the Internet and communications will be significant due to its extensive features, cross-platform and browser compatibility, and because it is standards-based.

It will be instrumental in closing the web vs. native app debate as HTML5 provides a convenient bridge between the two worlds. Of course, legacy plugins, such as Flash, Silverlight et al won't disappear immediately and are likely to benefit from further enrichment.

BSS and OSS Innovation Must Include the Customer

Despite the considerable interest in emerging innovations in policy, billing and customer experience management, it can sometimes seem that the needs of customers remain overlooked.

Kapsch, Openet and others show the way

In order for policy-based networks to really take off, network operators must think holistically – based on what they want to achieve (a personal set of rules and services for each customer) and the inputs / outputs they need to deliver this. Some vendors, like Kapsch and Openet seem to recognise this. Judging by TMW this year, more need to do so and to discuss the collaborative role they share in creating policy-driven networks.

The best thing since sliced bread? Well, that’s a bold claim. But, within the context of the telecoms industry, perhaps. What’s interesting about it is that policy is as much a philosophical approach as a set of tangible objects. You can’t touch it per se, but you can experience it and, if the network operators and vendors have their way, we may each be doing so in the not-to-distant future, whether we are aware of it or not. And then, perhaps, people will start to talk like the lovely Moll – of their personal policies.
