SlideshowPhotos: Salesforce Dreamforce Takes On Comic-Con
Mitch Wagner

Attending my first Dreamforce conference this month was like going to Comic-Con.

I go to Comic-Con at the San Diego Convention Center every year, and every year I also go to a couple of tech conferences there. When I'm at one of those tech conferences, I always think, "This conference would be even better if it had cosplay -- people wearing costumes."

My dream came true at this month's Salesforce's annual Dreamforce conference. Some 27,000 customers and partners descended on San Francisco to learn about using Salesforce's cloud software to improve relationships with customers. And many of those folks were in costume.

The conference had a national park theme. Conference attendees were called "Trailblazers," and San Francisco's Moscone Center was decorated like a park.

Live Digital Audio

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.
