What I’m curious about is this: What change agents will be present at NAB? My colleague Jack Wenzinger wrote a fantastic blog on this topic at the beginning of the year called “Change Agents to Watch in 2017,” and I’ve been thinking about how his blog might align – or not – with some of the themes at NAB. I asked him if his observations had changed since he wrote the blog post and what he was interested in at NAB. He commented on a few [...]

He liked that idea but thought it was too much trouble [...]

I once had a boss who said ‘(users) can have it right, they can have it fast, or they can have it cheap but you can’t have all 3.’ We at Wazee Digital constantly strive to create a product that makes end-users lives easier at the right moment for the right cost.

In my estimation, it’s more important to look to at the change agents for the year so here’s my predictions of the change agents to watch in 2017 [...]
