Shares in video processing specialist Envivio Inc. (NASDAQ: ENVI) fell more than 50 percent Tuesday morning after the company warned late Monday that it would miss its revenue target by a wide margin due to slow spending by customers in North America and Western Europe.

The company, which helps operators encode and package video for multiple types of screens, said it expects second-quarter revenues to be in the range of US$10 million to $11 million, versus previous guidance of between $17 million to $18 million. Shares were down $3.06 (53.73%) to $2.64 each in morning trading Tuesday.

Envivio counts Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC) as a customer and Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC) as a major channel partner. But its channel partner Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. made up 18 percent of its first-quarter revenues. On the company's first-quarter call, Envivio CEO Julien Signès said the company closed a deal with a Tier 1 North American operator that is not Time Warner Cable. Envivio is scheduled to post second-quarter numbers on Sept 6.

Why this matters
Envivio's life as a publicly traded company is off to a rocky start thanks to a combination of a tough economy and lumpy sales. After a year-long delay, Envivio went forward with an IPO in late April only to see its stock drop 5.7 percent on opening day. Market conditions combined with Envivio's recent results could keep other similar, private companies with IPO ambitions, including RGB Networks Inc. , on the sidelines.

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.
