Black Swan Telecom Journal is a professional zine and on-line community for people active in or responsible for managing telecom business assurance functions.
That includes service provider people as well as those who sell software, services, and consulting to the telecoms. “Telecoms” are communications firms offering services such as: mobile and fixed telephony, messaging, data/broadband, cable/video/satellite, cloud and virtual network services.
Business assurance is an evolving term that encompasses many fields, most notably: revenue assurance, fraud management, cost/margin management, security, and revenue maximization. The emphasis of these disciplines is operational excellence and business protection through superior analytic, auditing, and process improvement techniques.
Where we differ from other communications industry zines is that we will not cover breaking industry news. Our focus instead is on professional learning through case studies, how-to advice, and perspective on current telecom trends and best/future practices. In this respect, the Journal mirrors the professional content you’d find in medical or technical journals, except our writing style will be plain talk like Fortune Magazine.
Since 2012 is the first year of the Journal’s publication, our key goal is to establish Black Swan as the quality information provider for managers and professionals in our niche. Here are our more specific editorial goals for our first 12 months of publication:
We welcome contributions by executives, managers, and analysts who work at communications service providers.
If you believe you have something interesting to contribute, please contact us.
The ideal contribution is a case study where you talk about program implementation, management and lessons learned. Another area of keen interest to us is advice on a particular practice in revenue, fraud, cost, or security assurance. For instance, lending some advice on the hiring and training of revenue assurance analysts would be a good topic.
In any case, Black Swan will be happy to lend our writing knowhow to help bring your perspective to the community in a professional manner.
We highly value the contributions from professionals at software, services, and consulting firms.
The simplest and low-cost way to get coverage is through byline contributed articles and hiring Black Swan to help shape your story for the community. Please refer to our advertising page for more details.
