Service Provider Information Technology, or SPIT, is Light Reading's term for the evolving set of non-traditional telecom (and data networking) technologies that allow for a greater degree of flexibility in the creation, management, delivery, and monetization of new-generation communications services. In The SPIT Manifesto 2.0, we elaborate on the SPIT concept, highlight its importance in the telecom infrastructure ecosystem and show the impact that SPIT is having on strategies and service/technology developments.

re: Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT)
Thanks to Light Reading initiative on the term SPIT , the various ways by which the Service Provider can monetise,or develop the potential of a Telecom Network.Specifically the Service Provider requires IT and other "para Telecom" technologies to better manage the network function and in modern days it is one of the largest sector consuming these.However one of the important technologies usually ignored is Test & Measurement technology deployed alongside for measuring,test,monitoring and managing quality and interfaces of these Service providers.T&M technologies-from portable test instruments to large OSS/NMS contribute to the success of these networks.To that extent SPIT can include these technologies suppliers as well.Vishnu Goel T&M +919810101238
Light Reading founder Steve Saunders talks with VMware's Shekar Ayyar, who explains why cloud architectures are becoming more distributed, what that means for workloads, and why telcos can still be significant cloud services players.
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.
