The technology was hot but the temperatures were hotter in Las Vegas for the recent Cisco Live 2017 conference.

A few days before the conference began, the city tied its record for the highest temperature ever recorded and it barely cooled down for the conference.

Fortunately, air conditioning is a thing and the only times I had to go outside were the brief trips from airport to taxi to hotel and back again.

While not researching and writing articles, I looked around the conference and abused Twitter. Here's some of what I saw and what I had to say about it.

The company store on the show floor sold logo gear, including shirts, jackets, hats -- and this baby onesie. On seeing it, I died from the cute.

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.
