So it looks like all of the talking and predicting has culminated in Avaya acquiring ailing Nortel Enterprise Solutions for a reported $900 millon…but it’s still subject to some final t-crossing and i-dotting which is expected to conclude later this year.
Speed is of the essence though, as whilst this period of uncertainty for Nortel remains, competitors will pillage the reseller base driving FUD in their paths.
It’s difficult to know how this will shape up moving forward and where the impact will be felt the most (both positively and negatively). Technology is the single most talked about area in conversations I have had, as there is a perception of huge overlap. I can see some really fascinating synergies though and areas to leverage in the quest to defeat their number 1 enterprise nemesis. As always in these matters – the HOW will be one of the biggest challenges. I’m sure we will all be watching with great interest.

I have been around a while and seen some stuff for sure. I have experienced some good bad, indifferent and some downright fabulous.
I am still hugely motivated to get up every day and be curious. I love tech and business and most of all dogs oh and people ;-)
Having been in sales most of my working life I have a real interest in the art and science and am a committed lifelong learner - constantly frustrating my kids with my stock phrase "every day is a school day"
Personally, I’m a husband to one, and father to five amazing children (three of them are no longer children, but independent adults) and my golden lab – Archie, who is always pleased to see me.
I was blessed with becoming a Granddad in February 2021 (a very proud and somewhat besotted one) and another grandson arrived in October 2022 to keep their parents busy and for me to spoil.
I am also a mad keen lover of the oval ball game and a lifelong supporter of Leicester Tigers. As an Englishman, that's therefore England at a national level and the British and Irish Lions.
If I can be of service in any way including any area of developing a channel sales and support business or ecosystem partnerships, and or sales coaching or development, you can find me at the link below, and contact me via the form also.
One of my favourite "quotes" is
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!"
