CCC-Conventions of Customer Count
Customers who are purchasing equipment for the intent of SDWAN and customer purchasing equipment for other purposes, although capable of SDWAN are two different granularities that need to be defined. If Cisco were to count all customers with ISR 4300, capable of SDWAN, or Meraki, also capable of SDWAN, the customer count could be in tens of thousands. Riverbed, Silver Peak, Citrix, and Fortinet all have large customer bases that are WANop, VDI, or Firewall users. Conversion to a current platform to also continue service of previous functional bases does not merit Costomer Count. In the SDWAN arena, only pure play SDWAN companies can back up customer count and number of units shipped. Beware of the water being muddied by the legacy 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.
