GENEVA -- Orange Business Services has been chosen by JTI (Japan Tobacco International) to transform its digital working environment by moving its existing communications landscape to a fully managed unified communications solution based on Microsoft Lync 2013. JTI is a leading international tobacco manufacturer headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.

To create a workspace that fits JTI’s requirements, Orange Business Services will deploy and manage a unified communications solution to 104 JTI sites in 40 countries initially. The Lync-based solution will unify communications for 20,000 users with IM, Presence and Web conferencing services while 12,000 users will be enabled with Lync Enterprise voice and desktop video services, integrated with videoconferencing rooms. Orange will manage a hosted architecture and the entire ecosystem, including Sonus gateways and thousands of Polycom VVX Business Media Phones. An additional 3,000 mobile devices, tablets and smartphones will be Lync enabled.

This managed Lync solution enables JTI to bring the right people into the conversation very quickly, improves the speed of decision-making and communication-enables business processes. In addition, JTI’s mobile workforce will be supported with the same powerful unified communications tools no matter what device they use or where they are working.

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.
