SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Ruckus went public Friday morning at $15 per share, and employees celebrated with a party to watch CEO Selina Lo ring the NYSE opening bell.

That happened at 6:30 a.m. California time, but that didn't deter several dozen employees and some local media from coming to Sunnyvale to enjoy a hot breakfast, a little champagne and the rare excitement that comes with an IPO. And then a little more champagne.

For Ruckus, founded in 2002, it's been a long road. You can't blame them for celebrating.

Thanks for inviting me in, Nancy. I only wish I could be back there about now (lunchtime) to photograph the hangovers and fatigue.  :)

After all the hard work to get to IPO it is great to see the team celebrate together. Looking forward to more innovation from the industry and more IPOs to come.

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.
