LAS VEGAS -- Dell Technologies World -- The four-legged attendees were the most popular warm-blooded animals at Dell's annual customer and partner event this week. Dell brought in therapy dogs for stressed-out attendees to pet, give treats to and get their pictures taken with. This should become a tradition at every tech conference everywhere.

The conference also featured fancy toys, games and advice on how to make a professional appearance on social media.

The big news out of the conference for the Light Reading community was Dell-controlled VMware's discussion of how it plans to integrate its recent VeloCloud acquisition into a strategy for end-to-end networking, from the Internet of Things and branch offices to the data center and multicloud. (See VMware Takes On Cisco & Juniper With Network Vision.)

But it was also a good conference for fun and games. Here's some of what we saw.

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.
