SubscriberWise®, the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry and the leading provider of analytics-driven subscriber risk management technology, proudly announced today that it has been chosen winner of the 2014 Digital and Tech awards in the category of commercial software. SubscriberWise announced in January that it had been named a finalist.

The Digital and Tech Awards event was held on Thursday, March 13, 2014, at the prestigious Yale Club in New York City. The Yale Club is considered in the elite one percent of all private clubs in the world. The CableFAX Tech Awards are open to all Tech vendors, cable networks and MSOs in North America.
"First I want to thank Mark Hoffer, SubscriberWise chief systems engineer for his critical contributions over the past decade. Mark’s genius evolving SubscriberWise’s software cannot be overstated,” said David Howe, founder and president of SubscriberWise. “I once again acknowledge our technology partners around this country including FICO, TransUnion, American Support, CHR Solutions, CommSoft, GLDS, RR Enterprises, and others. Each is an integral part of the success of this organization. Finally I salute all of the winners and finalists who are indeed raising the bar with their innovative technology and personal contributions to our industry.”
“As an 18 year employee of MCTV, I also proudly acknowledge Robert Gessner who was named a 2014 Digital Hot List Honoree during the event. Bob is the president of MCTV (www.mctvohio.com) and a board member of SubscriberWise. Bob is the current vice chair of the American Cable Association and the former chair of the National Cable Television Cooperative. Bob’s father, Richard Gessner, founded MCTV nearly a half century ago. In 2009, Mr. Gessner was named one of America’s ‘Cable Television Pioneers’ (http://www.americancable.org/node/1108). MCTV has been honored a ‘Top Ops’ and is a leader in innovation and technology among independent operators.”
“SubscriberWise evolved at MCTV with the help of many talented cable professionals over the course of many years,” explained Howe. “MCTV has an ownership interest in SubscriberWise but the operator’s contributions to the nationwide launch and success of SubscriberWise is far greater than its financial stake. MCTV provides SubscriberWise with office space, a training center, cutting-edge network operations, engineers, and access to cable data and statistics among others. Simply stated, SubscriberWise would not exist without the initial and continued involvement of the Gessner family and MCTV,” emphasized Howe.
“Nearly 10 years after its founding, SubscriberWise is today contributing tens of millions of dollars annually to the communications industry through its precision analytics, decision management and rules technology, fraud and identity theft prevention, optimization and marketing technology, Red Flag compliance, churn reduction, increased cash-flow, and operational efficiencies. Combined with effective training, best practices, and highly competent customer service representatives who interact with the software each and everyday, the end result of the technology is a staggering 7500 percent ROI for operators.
SubscriberWise members comprise virtually every leading independent operator in America including: Antietam Cable; BendBroadband; Cable ONE; Comporium; Eagle Communications; GVTC; ImOn Communications; Media3; NewWave Communications; Ritter Communications; Shentel; TruVista; USA Communications; Vyve Broadband; and too many others to list here. I profoundly thank our members for their myriad suggestions and enhancements that continually improve SubscriberWise technology for the benefit of all. In the near-decade of SubscriberWise’s existence, not a single member operator has ever canceled its membership; SubscriberWise requires no contracts or commitments from its members.
I graciously thank CableFAX for this award,” concluded Howe. “This was a very special event for me personally. It was both a privilege and an honor to have gathered with many of the top leaders and thinkers in the communications industry.”

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing perf...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

The idea behind this session is my blog post - 5 Logstash Alternatives - which is unfortunately too short to do the presented log shippers justice. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Radu Gheorghe, Software Engineer at Sematext Group, will talk more about the things that matter: kinds of buffers, protocols, ways of parsing, correlating and de-duplicating messages, as well as supported inputs and outputs. And of course performance. All this should let you know which log shipper...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
