d+ and content partners
Last year at MWC Shanghai, Kazuhiro Yoshizawa, then the recently appointed CEO, spoke about the d+ strategy, and how a more open, flexible back office allowed NTT to use its network assets, coupled with a range of content partners, to launch new revenue generating services at a faster pace than ever before.

Continuous Transformation Journey
This is probably the most accurately named vendor strategy/product name I've heard in a very long time. I'm curious as to what makes up such a thing, and I'm assuming it will vary widely among different carriers, since everyone is starting their journey from a different place.

DT making progress
It sounds as though Deutsche Telekom is starting to offering more services over the pan-net platform, or is at least now planning for that. What will be interesting is to see (if we can) what impact these have on customer enagement with the operator as well as its own operational efficiency - its targets for cost savings by 2020, for instance, are pretty ambitious.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
