TOKYO -- NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NYSE: NTT), and Virtela Technology Services Incorporated (Virtela), a leading global managed and cloud-based network services company, announced today that NTT Com’s acquisition of Virtela has been completed.

The acquisition creates a single provider with sophisticated platforms and global network services capable of fulfilling not only current enterprise connectivity needs, but also emerging requirements for hybrid MPLS and Internet networks to establish more flexible, secure and high-speed access to cloud services. Service and operational integration will be completed this year, while customers will continue to enjoy NTT Com’s service quality and Virtela’s award-winning customer support, without any service migration or changes.

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.
