Oracle's Industry Chowder
Oracle's Industry Connect show in Boston aimed to highlight the various industry segments it covers with its products. Light Reading was just there for the communications though.

a major force
Oracle has become an important player in telecom industry. I think its mostly by acquisition. The CRM our company is using, and so many other service providers also using, is Siebel. The parent company was acquired by Oracle. And now they are a major player.

Not enough food photos
I love this: "The event was a fast-paced series of keynotes and break-out sessions and they frequently had to replace the coffee that you and your tired correspondent don't see here."

Now that we have to submit every receipt for expense reporting, I shudder to think that accounting will now be aware of the depth of my Starbucks addiction when I'm on the road. I almost never touch the stuff when I'm home, but when I'm traveling on business that green mermaid is like a siren to me.

Re: Graying Society
I think I'll go for the 'Do Not Resuscitate' model. It's much cheaper and the batteries last much longer.

Graying Society
I'm looking forward to the day when my life is saved by a robotic personal assistant giving me CPR. Hopefully, it downloads the correct instructions.

Live Digital Audio

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.
