Can You Really Build That With Breeze?

For me, business travel has always been a mixed bag.  I don’t like making reservations, packing, airports, airplanes, rental cars, and unfamiliar freeways, but I do enjoy meeting new people and being exposed to new and different ideas.  I also love sharing what I know (or pretend to know) with a willing audience. COVID-19 put […]

Real-Time IT Services in the Palm of Your Hand

I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying Oscar Wilde In just a few days, I get to stand in front of a crowd of Avaya Engage attendees ready to learn all about artificial intelligence and natural language processing.   While I am presenting several other sessions […]

By the Time I Get to Phoenix (And Engage 2020)

I have been going to Avaga Engage (and its previously named incarnations) for many year.  More than simply attending, I have been hosting breakout sessions at Engage.  This year is no different.  If you count “Stump the Experts” (and I do), I am presenting six breakout sessions.  While my Debugging Avaya SIP is a repeat […]

Another Demonstration of my IoT Workflow Software

Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action.  In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!

Using AI and IoT to Orchestrate Smart Parking

I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software.  In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created.  It’s a cool video […]

Engage 2019

Every once in a blue moon, someone is as actually interested in what I have to say.  This happened earlier this week when I was asked about my thoughts on Engage 2019.  If you too are interested, you will find them here: Avaya Engage 2019 — Communications (and Businesses) are Evolving

Digital Transformation — Avaya Breeze and Beyond

“The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.” – Arthur C. Clarke In technology, some ideas take a long time to catch on.  Consider Microsoft’s journey to Skype for Business.  For better or worse, I was there from the beginning — from Microsoft’s first foray into telephony […]

Building SMS Text Bots is a Breeze

As a nerdy guy, I love movies about other nerdy guys.  Give me movies like “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Theory of Everything,” or “Einstein and Eddington” (two nerdy scientists for the price of one), and I am in geek heaven.  Recently, I was thrilled by “The Imitation Game” — the story of Alan Turing and […]

The Easy Button for IoT

I am sure that I don’t have to tell you how the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing our world.  Stop by any electronics retailer and you will find smart TVs, smart lights, smart refrigerators, and smart thermostats.  Open up the brochure for a new car and you will find more space dedicated to intelligent […]

Watson (and me) in the News

This is cool. I wasn’t aware that I was the subject of Avaya’s latest podcast.
