151 Advisors, a global strategic consulting firm for mobile, wireless and web-based software and technology companies, today announced that Laurie Lamberth has joined the company as Associate Partner. With over 20 years of experience in mobile, M2M, the Internet of Things and digital media, Laurie will help accelerate 151 Advisors’ new M2M practice.
“Laurie’s depth and breadth of knowledge of the IoT and M2M, backed with her proven success helping early and growth-stage companies drive connected products and services to market, is a strategic compliment to our leadership team that will result in bottom-line results for our clients,” said Steve Brumer, Partner at 151 Advisors. “She’s execution-focused with rich experience and contacts in mobile, M2M, enterprise mobility, location-based services (LBS) and mobile marketing.”
151 Advisors recently announced specialized consulting services to help companies in today's rapidly evolving global IoT and Industrial Internet ecosystem solve critical business problems, seize new market opportunities, and accelerate results. 151 Advisors offers industry-focused strategic, business and financial planning, as well as execution support such as go-to-market strategy and execution, product and business strategy, market entry, distribution and channel development, strategic partnerships, corporate development and M&A.
“I joined 151 Advisors because we see an opportunity to provide quality professional services to an underserved and rapidly growing market: connected devices and the services they connect to, also known the Internet of Things, M2M and telematics. There are new and growing companies in this space, but not many, if any, business focused consulting firms to serve them. I look forward to applying our experience and global business networks, along with 151’s rich set of strategic and operational resources, to the task of helping companies in the connected device and cloud services sectors increase their top lines and optimize their operations,” said Lamberth.
Recognized as one of Connected World Magazine’s “Women of M2M” in February 2013, and named “Power Player in Mobile” in October 2013 by AlwaysOn Networks, Lamberth regularly publishes, speaks, and is interviewed for print, radio, and TV on topics related to wireless, location-based services, privacy, the Internet of Things, and next-gen telecom. Over the course of her career, she held a number of leadership roles with Nextel and Sprint, launching U.S. tier 1 mobile operator Nextel Communication’s first market, propelling Nextel’s growth in various marketing and strategic partnership positions, and leading the enterprise business development team at Nextel and Sprint for seven years, including five years leading the M2M business development team.
Lamberth holds an MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from California State University, Long Beach. She’s extended her education with workshops in strategic negotiation and leadership at the Harvard Business School.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
