LONDON -- Azzurri Communications, the UK’s leading provider of managed communications services, has today announced the launch of its new Mobile Business Unit to lead innovation in mobile operations. Richard White, formerly of BT and O2/Telefonica, has been appointed as the head of the new division.

With mobile devices becoming the medium of choice for many aspects of IT within the business, such as internet access, web browsing, email, collaboration and conferencing, organisations are quickly having to adapt. This new approach requires organisations to integrate their previously disparate mobile and client computing strategies in new ways to combine smartphones, tablets and PCs under one cohesive infrastructure. Recognising this shift towards mobility, Azzurri has founded the new Mobile Business Unit in order to take the lead in developing complete ’connected workforce’ solutions for its customers.

The Mobile Business Unit will leverage Azzurri’s extensive portfolio of mobile solutions and specialist convergence skills to deliver the specific solutions required by the connected workforce, such as application and document security and containerisation, mobile application management and enterprise content management and file sharing. It will also include an application development capability, providing Azzurri’s customers with a completely integrated mobile offering from the devices through to the network, the platform and the applications.

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.
