Dave Duggal, Founder and CEO - EnterpriseWeb

Design of next-generation virtualized networks for the digital service provider has largely stalled as telcos struggle with the complexity of the task before them. Conventional approaches don't support key strategic objectives (service velocity, DevOps automation and business agility). The degree of hard-code and manual integration to make anything work at all is not scalable; initial solutions are simply too static and bloated to be practical. CSP transformation initiatives are in desperate need of technological innovation. The industry requires new "middleware" between the products and user experiences they want to deliver and the underlying applications, services, resources and processes that fulfill them.

In our webinar, we'll interview Dave Duggal, founder and CEO of EnterpriseWeb, which ran ETSI NFV PoC #1, "CloudNFV," led six award-winning TMF Catalyst projects demonstrating advanced standards-based use cases and recently won "Best NFV Interoperability" at Layer 123's SDN & NFV World Congress. The company's suite of cloud-native products provide for secure, scalable, zero-touch operations with policy-based management.

The webinar will feature a product demonstration showing how customers using EnterpriseWeb can onboard any heterogeneous VNF or PNF, compose them into any arbitrary network service, and deploy them with any diverse target environment (multi-VNFM, multi-cloud, multi-VIM) – with no hard-coding or manual integration! The demo will go on to show how their software dynamically responds to events and how services can be reconfigured using simply metadata.

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.
