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

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.
