Alan Breznick, Cable/Video Practice Leader, Light Reading

Solomon Israel, VP Business Development in Ericsson’s North American TV & Media Practice, Ericsson North America

Even more than before, the video market is undergoing unprecedented levels of disruption from all sides, leaving the traditional pay-TV value chain forever changed. The key question for all players now is how to leverage their strengths and assets to win customer loyalty in the face of shifting viewer expectations and rapid technological innovation.

Please join Solomon Israel, VP Business Development in Ericsson’s North American TV & Media Practice, and Light Reading Cable/Video Practice Leader Alan Breznick as they continue the conversation from our previous webinar, “Winning Customer Loyalty in a Disrupted Video Market” last fall. This not-to-be-missed event will delve even deeper into the disruptive market forces and provide answers to key questions such as: What do today’s customers want and value from their media services? What are the key drivers of satisfaction and what can be done to close the existing viewer ‘satisfaction gap’ between legacy pay-TV services and the newer OTT video offerings? What media delivery options and business models can you employ to increase engagement and delight your customers every day? The discussion will greatly benefit everyone in the TV & Video distribution ecosystem.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
