As the infrastructure-as-a-service(IaaS) public and private cloud markets grow increasingly competitive and commoditized, IT service providers want opportunities for meaningful differentiation that enhances customer value and provides new revenue opportunities. In this session, you will learn about the new Managed EdgeCloud Solution which enables cloud and managed service providers to deliver clouds quickly to customer sites. We will provide an overview of the cloud-in-a-box infrastructure and the key integrations into the cloud management platform. We will cover use cases and key differentiators vs. public cloud providers and DIY solutions. With this solution, service providers can quickly productize hybrid-cloud services on a complete cloud-in-a-box on-premises offering, built for traditional enterprise workloads and with seamless integration between public- and private-cloud environments.

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.
