EXTON, Pa. -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced the launch of a comprehensive training and certification program that is designed to support the rollout of higher-margin business services by cable system operators. The Business Class Services Specialist (BCSS) course and certification have been created to address the need for experienced field technicians who can perform and troubleshoot installations for the fast-growing business services market. According to Heavy Reading, total business services revenue was more than $7 billion in 2012, a $1 billion increase from the prior year. “The intricacies and service assurance demands of business services have created the need for a new category of cable technical professional,” said Steve Harris, senior director, advanced network technologies for SCTE.

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.
