Traditional data center interconnection worked well in the old days, when users on desktop devices accessed siloed enterprise apps. But those days are gone. In today's cloud era, users expect information on-demand on mobile devices, anywhere and everywhere, accessed through public, private and hybrid clouds. New demand brings challenges to technology and operations that must be met by shrinking IT budgets and reduced resources. In this session, you'll learn more about the challenges for data center interconnection -- connections between data centers -- in the cloud era and how to overcome them with technology innovation that spans every aspect of data center networking. You'll learn how to satisfy today's requirements for scalability to meet unpredictable demand, programmability, flexibility and simplicity as well as bridging the culture gap between IT and networking within the business to get everybody working as a team.

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.
