Communications service providers (CSPs) have made substantial investments in video distribution networks based upon solid business models, but nobody could have predicted how radically these models would change in the last few years. These changes, driven mainly by evolving video consumption habits, require CSPs to build media cloud-based service capabilities that can easily adapt to the new multiscreen industry dynamics, thus allowing CSPs to deploy more flexible distribution networks and media offerings while streamlining operations. In this webinar, join the IT industry's iconic media cloud expert Hewlett Packard Enterprise and media and entertainment industry leader Imagine Communications for a lively, informative review of how CSPs can launch and monetize new content management and distribution services and create innovative user experiences to attract and retain pay-TV subscribers and accelerate monetization opportunities. This webinar will be hosted by Light Reading's global media expert, Alan Breznick.

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.
