re:
The only issue with on-demand streaming is the availability of content when the user wants it. How much content will be available and when. What if I want to watch a Christmas movie in mid-summer. With DVR and a recorded program, I can do that. Streaming may only make those movies available "in-season."

re:
It's incredible and I must say storage is still probably the major cost factor in Video world (excluding the content costs of course). The big question is how long the "DVR" concept going to exist whether it's in-house or in the cloud. I can see the user behaviour moving to on-demand streaming which means it's no longer going to be 'recorded' but streamed whenever wherever on whatever device.

The storage savings or optimization of storage is going to be extremely important in that scenario.

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.
