Verizon provided more than 80 tablets to the Super Bowl XLVII Host Committee to support volunteers with guiding, helping, directing and entertaining fans visiting New Orleans for The Big Game on Feb. 3. Equipped with 4G LTE connectivity and specially-designed apps created just for the occasion, the tablets will be deployed with volunteers across the historic French Quarter and Central Business District.

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.
