Barcelona is a beautiful city, and was a great place to host OpenStack Summit. You know what else is a beautiful city? San Diego. It's a lot like Barcelona, and I live here so I don't have to travel ten hours to get to it.

For years, people have been telling me about how beautiful and fantastic Barcelona is (except during Mobile World Congress, when I'm told it's like being trapped in a crowded elevator for several days). I finally had my first visit to Barcelona in late October, for OpenStack Summit.

And it was fine. Nice. Lovely. Mild climate. Palm trees. Spanish influence. Like home.

First thing I did after I got to my hotel in Barcelona and dropped off my bags was go for a long walk on the beach. We have beaches in San Diego. I never go.

I am not complaining. Barcelona is a beautiful city. I had a fine time and got a lot of work done too. And I took a day off work to sightsee before the conference started. Here's some of what I saw.

My hotel was the AC Hotel Barcelona Forum, located a short walk from the OpenStack conference center. It's also a short walk to the beach, and this skate park.

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.
