NEW YORK CITY -- Verizon and Unisys are teaming to offer Verizon enterprise-class cloud computing solutions through Unisys’ Public Cloud Hosting contract with the Western States Contracting Alliance-National Association of State Procurement Officers (WSCA-NASPO) cooperative purchasing organization.

WSCA-NASPO provides cooperative purchasing contracts for use by all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories to help spur innovation and competition in the marketplace. Counties, cities and towns, K-12 public schools, colleges and universities, public safety agencies and authorized nonprofit groups in member states can also leverage WSCA-NASPO purchasing contracts. Under terms of the agreement, Unisys and Verizon will collaborate to leverage their respective capabilities to offer cloud computing solutions for IT transformation and more efficient delivery of agency and constituent services.

"Cloud computing is transforming the business of government," said Brian Costello, vice president of public sector cloud, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "By joining forces with Unisys to offer advanced cloud infrastructure planning, migration and managed services to participating WSCA-NASPO members, we are combining our unique capabilities to enable public sector organizations to harness the power of cloud to drive efficiency and fundamentally change the way services are delivered."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
