Caroline Chappell, Principal Analyst, NFV & Cloud, Heavy Reading

Rolf Eberhardt, Lead OSS Service Orchestration, CMS, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

This webinar will discuss the need for an intent-based service orchestration layer, in addition to NFV, to achieve CSPs' service agility goals. It will explain that service modeling is critical to this layer but not all information modeling approaches are equal. It will describe a powerful new service descriptor approach which will enable operators to change the equation when it comes to defining and instantiating services, reducing cost, complexity and time-to-market for service delivery across both physical and virtualized networks.

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.
