This webinar will look at the business drivers for applying DevOps in the network engineering domain as telcos seek to become more agile and automated. What does DevOps mean for the networking industry and how should network organizations adopt DevOps - do the concepts need to be adjusted for the network operations environment? What impact will DevOps have on the way network engineers work and how will their roles change? What tools and technologies are needed to support DevOps? Tune in to a thought-provoking discussion about the differences between DevOps for IT and the network and how DevOps principles can be harnessed to create a programmable, agile network.

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.
