February 2018

by Dave Michels

I’ve always thought February was a light month. After all, it’s the month before the EC news blitz and it’s the shortest month.

Now that I’m compiling these Quipz newsletters, I can definitively say a lot happened in February. I’ve condensed and analyzed the top EC stories, and it’s still 12 pages.

I used the first page for Enterprise Connect 2018, and shared some of the changes to look for this year.

These newsletters can be yours. More info here.

The Feb Quipz report looks something like this:

More: 3 under Emerging Tech, 2 under Miscellaneous and 4 Acquisitions, and Financial Quipz for 6 companies. and 19 recommended Goodreads for the month.

The Full Subscription includes TalkingPointz Research Notes.

Research Reports: Embedded video with Vidyo, and Avaya 2018.

Admittedly, 12 pages is a pretty long summary. No one has more incentive than me to get these newsletters shorter. In the meantime – they are highly designed to be easy to skim.
