I'd take shopping for shoes at Nordstrom's over dealing with my broadband and mobile service providers any day.

I think you nailed it in your commentary--metrics for this,metrics for that, and they really don't tell you squat about customer experience.

Well said.


We get clients coming and asking these things, so I believe they do understand and are looking at the whole picture, whole CEM framework/ecosystem/etc.


We see it as essentially a human nature thing (CS at least). It's not limited to the telecoms space. It's the same in retail, hotel/leisure, gaming, etc. People respond to incentives. For one retail client, we implemented some 'sweeteners' for customer assistants. We then got feedback from shoppers. It showed a marked improvement in customer experience.

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.
