The Telecom Management Industry Council concentrates on identifying opportunities within and advancing the "new" telecom management industry. In the past telecom management has often meant telecom bill audits or telecom expense management programs and telecom has been viewed as just an operating expense with primary initiatives revolving around cost cutting. Today, it means so much more. Many types of vendors provide services that impact the telecom environment and how efficienct it is. And the telecom environment is evolving to one viewed as an asset that can be used to drive business results that executive management cares about. This group will focus on advancing the opportunities for the telecom environment, the vendors who support it and the business who can leverage it.
