For podcast 5, I was joined by not one, but three guests. Mike Willett, Director of Fraud and Revenue Assurance for Telstra, President of the Australasian Telecommunications Fraud and Risk Association, and fellow talkRA blogger, put the kids to bed and dialed in from Australia. Glenn Hovey, ex-Global Revenue Assurance Manager for Vodafone Group, took time out from packing his possessions before he moves home. Last but not least, Guy Howie, Director of Business Intelligence And Assurance Solutions (BIAAS) managed to find a precious half-hour slot between conference calls with his clients. I am grateful to all three for making the time to talk with me. As ever, all opinions expressed are those of the individuals participating, and need not represent the views of their businesses or other organizations they are affiliated to.
For the first debate, Mike, Glenn, and Guy discussed a perennial topic, but one that still causes a lot of disagreement: if, when, and how should RA utilize an enterprise data warehouse? Half an hour was barely long enough to hear what they each had to say. To compensate, I hope they will all participate in many more panel debates for talkRA.
