24 years professional career where i was always looking to take the ICT industry a step forward whenever there is a need for innovative telecom solutions, offerings & automated process for operations & management tools, right competence skill set & tools to enable my organization to sell more, deliver with speed & quality using a simple process and clear organization structure. I would like to be taking it from ideas into strategy, communication & up to delivery with operators launching new services.

I've started my career back in 1995 as a professional programmer focused in innovative technologies moving from development of low level operating system calls to the early internet days developing internet banking systems to NCR RMEA customers.

In 2000 I've been the 1st employee to join Ericsson Mobile Internet Center of excellence in Egypt as a solution architect & system designer in early days of GPRS trying to build & sell Mobile Payment solution and ending up to sell first locally customized WAP Gateway, it was too early for mobile payments.

In 2002 i was leading a team of innovative developers & testers with their dedicated LAB in Ericsson serving operators & application development partners in the EMW days where we built & sold the 1st enterprise WAP stock trading solution in Egypt and sold first Operator portal solution in Northern Africa.

In 2003/2004 i became the SI champion in Egypt when Ericsson started the System Integration business in Northern Africa growing up service layer (VAS) capabilities to build solutions for MIEP, MMS, SMSCs, Multi Activation platforms, Network Management nodes and changing the way operators used to use their classic GSM OSS to new arena of OSS RC SI solution.

In 2007, I've started a new journey in Ericsson focusing back on software development building up a customization center in Egypt delivering world-wide.

Now i'm making, to be the platform of choice to build IoT & M2M applications in few hours.

"Being a speaker on a couple of the Industry Insights Webinars was a wonderful experience. They knew how to make me feel at ease and provided ample opportunity to ensure I was prepared for my part in the program. Considering the care with which the entire staff approached every aspect of the event, you'd think they were producing a full-fledged network television program. These people are top-notch, and they produce consistently great material that is not only educational in nature, but also fun to watch and relevant to their audience. They obviously know their stuff, and they're always striving for excellence. I highly recommend the team at IOT Marketing; they're a class act!"

Erin Holloway , President

“To say that Tiffani Neilson is dedicated would be an understatement; to call her “professional” would not do her justice. I am convinced that any project Tiffani touches will have “excellence” and “success” written all over it. I’ve had the honor of speaking at a couple of events produced by Tiffani and her team, both of which came off flawlessly. She is wise beyond her years and rises far beyond expectations. Her ability to get the job done with a smile, combined with her grasp of the overall picture impressed me from the very beginning. The end result? Consistently high-quality, riveting programs that you don’t want to miss. Somehow, she manages to get it done with just the right combination of determination, grace, professionalism, and style, earning an 11 on a scale of one to ten in my opinion. Tiffani Neilson gets a wholehearted five-star recommendation from me.”

“It was a great experience to participate in a webinar and work with Tiffani and the team at IOT Marketing. Everything about their approach was strategic and professional. Tiffani had done her research and successfully compiled the right information to be presented. She also made sure it was reviewed and edited prior to presentation.
