Ed Franqui, Business Development Manager, Cisco

Service providers are always looking for ways to reduce cloud infrastructure costs and overhead, ease their operational burden costs and bring new cloud service offerings to market more quickly. In this session, we will discuss a unique solution partnership between Cisco, NetApp and Microsoft that enables our service-provider partners to do just that. The solution enables service providers to design, build and deploy a broad range of infrastructure-, software- and platform-as-a-service offerings right from the start. We will do a deep dive into the NetApp Resource Provider for Windows Azure Pack, discussing its offerings for service providers.

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.
