In the face of rapidly changing demand, service providers recognize the need for a high degree of automation in how they deliver services. But at the same time, it’s imperative to ensure resources are being used in the most effective way. Virtualized functions will increase the speed and variety of options available, making the job of determining “what’s good for business?” quickly enough that much more challenging. This webinar explores the evolving context for automation and optimization, introducing the concept of a ‘business objective-driven’ approach leveraging AI techniques to meet the needs of a transformed market.

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.
