For sure, I'm not the only one feeling how fast 2014 is coming to an end. Just the other day I overheard a couple at the grocery store telling their cashier how they saw a Christmas commercial for the first time this season. This made me realize that the Holidays are right around the corner and much preparation is in order. To that end and as it relates to compliance reporting in the telecom world, this is the time to prepare for a year-end gathering of the minds with your compliance reporting personnel to discuss plans for 2015. Past accomplishments, anticipated documents and projected changes should be at the forefront of discussions. Whether your regulatory team is comprised of internal or external experts, aggregating their invaluable knowledge and drawing on their experiences will ensure your organization will hit the ground running in 2015.
