SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Curvature, an innovative IT infrastructure services provider, today announced its approach for transforming the delivery of multi-vendor, global technical support services. Formerly known as Network Hardware Resale, the company has unveiled a new name to better identify its evolution in becoming a global provider of independent IT infrastructure services.

Since its founding in 1986, NHR has become a strategic partner to more than 10,000 customers worldwide, spanning Global 1000 enterprises, small and mid-sized businesses, telecommunications service providers, financial institutions, government entities, educational institutions, and healthcare organizations. Over the last 28 years, the company has partnered with clients to consistently offer the best IT solutions to meet business needs, resulting in the company’s transformation from a basic reseller of pre-owned Cisco equipment into a leading, independent supplier of vendor-agnostic IT infrastructure and operations services. Curvature is uniquely positioned to help CIOs regain control of how they procure, maintain and upgrade multi-vendor IT infrastructure.

According to Mike Sheldon, president and CEO of Curvature, the new name reinforces a long-standing commitment to offering customers choices and solutions that allow them to excel in meeting ever-increasing business and technology demands. “We firmly believe that our customers need to be in charge of their own IT destiny and not feel forced to depend solely on OEMs to guide crucial lifecycle management decisions,” he said. “We chose the name Curvature because it represents a change in direction from the norm. The cornerstone of our approach has always been allowing our customers to dictate their own terms in their IT purchases. In doing so, our value and services offering long surpassed our former name—Network Hardware Resale.”

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.
