You need to optimize what is most important to you

There is an emotional and deep-seated need behind the concept of optimize. If you really care for something, always look for how you can optimize it. To succeed, you need to look past the obvious and read the hidden signals with no confirmation bias - let the data guide you.

OSS and BSS User Group taking over Paris next week

Next week we’re in Paris for the 2017 OSS/BSS User Group, where the community of Ericsson customers using Ericsson Operations and Business Support Systems will be sharing their successes and learning.

5G network slicing: the economic opportunities for operators

With 5G on the horizon, the Internet of Things (IoT) offers great potential to transform industry and society. That said, in order to capture the opportunity, operators will need to carefully consider the new demands being placed on their networks and make strategic investments in order to deliver high-quality, efficient IoT services.

"Instrument" and be Healthy

To "Instrument" is the scientific approach to infrastructure and applications.

The top three stumbling blocks for cloud transformation programs

Operators, globally, are rapidly embarking on their evolution towards being digital service providers. If you’re one of them, it’s high time to begin your own digital transformation so that you are positioned to help your customers achieve theirs. That means updating your services, network, infrastructure, and operations to become agile and accelerate innovation. The cloud, in all it fuzzy definitions, is an integral part of achieving the digital transformation. A successful Cloud Transformation will create the necessary foundation for the digital service provider of the future.

Data-centric design: Building relevance for future digital

Is your infrastructure architecture network- or compute-centric? Actually, both architectures miss the point. You can compare them to a failure to identify the user experience as the most critical part of mobile phone design or the failure to see passengers being the center of design for cars and roads. 

Ericsson Cloud Blog becomes Future Digital Blog

It’s sometimes hard not to get whiplash due to the speed by which industries and markets are evolving. That’s why so many of us turn to blogs to help keep us informed. And that’s why we’re pleased to announce that the Ericsson Cloud Blog and the IT/OSS/BSS Blog have joined forces to create the Future Digital Blog, where we’ll discuss all things digital.

Distributed Systems — challenging but necessary

In a world of billions of IoT devices producing data — which in many cases must be acted upon within milliseconds — distributed network, compute and data capabilities become increasingly important. 

Orchestration beyond your four walls

Every day our conference rooms here at Ericsson are filled with white board sessions and enthusiastic debates on how we might help operators to maintain and/or regain their relevance in the era of the digitally-savvy consumer. How do we help drive digital transformation across disparate organizations? What application modernization will be required to participate in emerging platform ecosystems? How do we manage the potential onslaught of network slices? 

Why continuous improvement is more important than technology

Most of us have the desire to continuously improve. It can be about being a better parent, a faster runner, a nicer friend, or a smarter student.

Multi-SIM: One Number, Multiple Devices

Would you like to be able to be reached on your mobile number, independent of where you are and which device you are using, for example, via your smartwatch or other wearables when you are out jogging or doing other sports—leaving your smartphone behind? Or would you like to be reached or make a call when you simply have forgotten your smartphone at home or when the battery on your smartphone ran out?
