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! Advertisements

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 […]

IBM and Avaya and Cisco, Oh My!

On a recent episode of the public radio program, Marketplace, the host, Kai Ryssdal, asked his guest to describe her job in five words or less.  I can’t remember what her response was, but it made me think about what mine might be.  My first reaction was something akin to “Waiting until retirement day,” but […]

SIP Certificates for Avaya Endpoints

As busy as I am these days, I have a hard time saying “no” when asked to write something for what I deem to be a worthy publication.  Case in point is the article on SIP Certificates that I wrote for IAUG Insights.  “Flip” to page 22 to find me. IAUG Insights  

Cisco, Meet Avaya. Avaya, Meet Cisco

Come together, right now over me Lennon and McCartney   If you are as old as I am, you have almost certainly been asked this question at least once in your life: “Beatles or Stones?” While that is an easy answer for some folks, I happen to really like both bands.  No single Beatle had […]

Avaya CPaaS – A Communications Platform for Today and Tomorrow

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now… Joni Mitchell It wasn’t that long ago that ownership was everything.   I bought CDs for music and DVDs for movies.  I went to bookstores for the hottest summer reading.  I filled a filing cabinet drawer with disks to install TurboTax, Photoshop, Windows and Mac operating systems, and […]

The Internet of Things Comes to Legoland

Avaya has been very busy creating Breeze workflows with my IoT software and the most engaging uses of my work can be found in their Lego Smart City.   It’s impressive how little blocks of plastic can be so successful at presenting IoT in ways that everyone can relate to. Here are two videos that demonstrate […]

Visualizing The Internet of Things

It’s important to know one’s limitations.  For example, I consider myself a pretty good computer programmer.  I love problem solving and turning abstract concepts into lines of code.  Over the years, I have written everything from SIP-based communication services to hard disk interrupt processors. However, I am not good at writing software that people can […]
