Heavy Reading, working with Cisco, Ericsson, Intel and Oracle, has developed a unique series of virtualization indexes, aggregating input from CSPs around the world to get a detailed, up-to-the-minute picture of the status of virtualization initiatives. The indexes provide all CSPs with a compelling reality check for measuring their own progress in three critical areas: planning, deployment and spending. In this webinar, Roz Roseboro, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, shares the results from the recently updated set of indexes and leads a panel discussion on what the results mean for CSPs and the entire telecom ecosystem.

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.
