José Valles is on a mission to help bridge the divide between mobile operators and the app developer community and is harnessing much of BlueVia's energies towards that goal.

And, as part of the recently created Digital division of operator giant Telefónica SA (NYSE: TEF), BlueVia is in a great position to develop relationships and bring together the different people and companies that could, and should, be working together.

As Valles explains in this video, a greater degree of understanding between developers and the communications service providers can help expose their applications and lead to benefits for all parties, including the end users.

See Valles, a big Otis Redding fan, explain what BlueVia has been up to in this regard from about 1:00 into the interview.

And later in the video you can find out what Valles thought was hot at this year's Mobile World Congress and which team the Spaniard believes is going to win the Euro 2012 soccer championship this summer. (Clue: It isn't England…)

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
