NICE, France -- Management World 2013 -- Have you ever seen a massive queue for a Microsoft Corp. Surface RT tablet?

As MW13 attendees queue to pick up their free tablets, at least three of them are getting their pockets picked…
The reaction so far has been very positive -- there are lots of smiling faces as people open boxes and find there really is a free tablet inside the massive box. And there's a team of Microsoft folk on hand to help show attendees get up and running. Tomorrow will be the big test, though. Will people be using the devices around the show?

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.
