SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Joyent, the high-performance cloud infrastructure company, today announced the launch of the Global Cloud Network (GCN), an alliance of Mobile Carriers who run their Mobile Clouds and IaaS on Joyent's data center fabric.

Global Cloud Network responds to the explosive growth of mobile devices in emerging markets like Brazil, Russia, India and China as well as the mobile-first markets of Africa, India and Indonesia. Today, mobile-first carriers in emerging markets are facing unprecedented scaling challenges with billions of real-time, data-intensive, and latency-sensitive mobile transactions hitting their networks. These carriers require the ability to deliver high-performance, highly secure mobile cloud infrastructure services to meet the demands of today's user-intensive mobile, web and mission-critical machine-to-machine applications, all requiring a new class of cloud infrastructure.

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.
