When it comes to mobile data, would you rather 'set it and forget it' or get paid to play?

Great points, nbattson. That seems to be what the vendors are suggesting -- an interactive, real-time dashboard for making these changes. So, it'd be a one-time thing you did on the fly when you needed to access the video; not a permanent change. I'll be interested to see these dashboards implemented.

re: Playing the Mobile Data Game
I like to set and forget, but realise that with data caps in place there will need to be an interactive offering to access massive files like video every so often. Like last week I was working on a video using Dropbox as a common storage site for the team collaborating on the project. Checking the video results was very handy with my phone on the move....but the size of the files was BIG and my monthly plan is 60% used and its day 5.

Such a service would have to be very easy to activate and de-activate though.

I'm coming around to that mindset too. I want the lowest cost and Im willing to work for it a little, provided it's a simple interface and easy process.

I think I'd prefer the interactive model. My data usage varies, so it would be nice to pay relatively little during slow months and to not worry about a cap if I hit a spike in the first 2-3 days of a month.

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.
