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.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

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.
