Re: Funhouse mirrors
But predators are hunters by nature -- although thinking of Randy Stephenson as Oliver Wendell Douglas is pretty funny.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
As Jeff Lewis from Comcast said here this AM, they'd rather hunt than farm. That means they are constantly hunting for new business. By definition, the incumbent isn't a hunter. 

I give cable guys credit for seeing the opportunities and going after them aggressively.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
Being first is nice, but I'd say the cable guys are putting more energy into what they're doing. That's a big change from where the industry was just a few years ago, when Alan B. started this event series.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
I can't disagree with cable's energy here but in fairness, every major telecom incumbent had an SD-WAN service ahead of the cable guys.

Cable operators are bringing a ton of energy to the business services sector, while incumbents seem mired in lethargy. We live in interesting times, indeed.

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.
