Late last year, the Future of Virtualization indexes, developed by Heavy Reading, working with Ericsson, Intel and Oracle, showed that CSPs' virtualization efforts were losing some momentum. This unique series of virtualization indexes aggregates input from CSPs around the world to get a detailed, up-to-the-minute picture of the status of virtualization initiatives. Updated every six months, the indexes provide all CSPs with a compelling reality check for measuring their own progress in three critical areas: planning, deployment and spending. In this webinar, Roz Roseboro, Senior Analyst at Heavy Reading, will share the results from the May indexes, noting the changes since the fall update, and lead a panel discussion on what the results mean for CSPs and the entire telecom ecosystem.

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.
