The capabilities of many legacy billing and charging systems are strained in today's world. Due to explosive subscriber and transaction growth, the rapid introduction of new digital services, and consumer demand for anytime, anywhere services, organizations without flexible and super-responsive billing solutions will soon fall behind. A cloud-based billing model based on an billing and revenue management convergent billing platform provides optimum flexibility to meet these challenges. This webinar addresses:

  • Why and how operators and services-based businesses should deploy cloud-based billing
  • The challenges and concerns surrounding cloud billing models
  • How cloud billing enables businesses to more quickly capitalize on new opportunities, while addressing scaling challenges and keeping capital costs under control
  • The realities of implementing a cloud billing solution and how the typical process works

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.
