FORNEBU, Norway -- Telenor and Microsoft have signed a global syndication agreement which means that collaboration and office solutions for companies will merge into one in the cloud.

The agreement, between Microsoft and Telenor Group, gives Telenor the right to sell licenses for Office 365 as well as the company's other services. Telenor is, therefore, one of the first telecom operators in the world to offer a telephony service within Lync Online from Microsoft Office 365.

Telenor Norway will, in cooperation with Telenor Business Internet Services (Telenor's cloud services company), be the first to offer the solution to its business customers. The agreement means that they will receive two professional business solutions as a single integrated package: Telenor's mobile business network "Mobilt Bedriftsnett" and Microsoft Office 365, with voice included. Telenor will launch Office 365 in January 2013 and expects to have the solution for voice integration ready for the market during the fourth quarter of 2013.

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.
