NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology announced today that Globe Telecom has selected them to support its digital transformation initiative and lay the foundation for next-generation infrastructure, including virtualization. Globe will use Netcracker's sophisticated OSS suite and comprehensive Service Orchestration solution, a component of NEC/Netcracker's Hybrid Operations Management solution and Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice.

Globe Telecom is the leading mobile service operator in the Philippines, managing one of the nation's largest networks which delivers sophisticated mobile, broadband and fixed-line services to consumers, small and medium businesses and large enterprises.

Netcracker's OSS suite, comprised of Service Activation, Resource Inventory and Discovery & Reconciliation, and NEC/Netcracker's Service Orchestration solution will enable Globe to lay the foundation for hybrid operations between physical and virtual infrastructure. The solutions will also optimize current service deployment processes and increase the level of automation.

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.
