Sandra O’Boyle, Senior Analyst, Customer Experience and Analytics, Heavy Reading

Chris Newton-Smith, Chief Marketing Officer, Redknee

Today’s digital economy has spurred an ever-growing portfolio of products and services for communications customers. As customers become more demanding and digital services become more complex, service providers can no longer rely on traditional approaches to serve their customers.

Monetizing digital services requires greater agility and a platform that supports the launch of new services and the end-to-end customer journey. For service providers to succeed, an agile product catalog and order management system is necessary, as well as a single customer view on pricing, assurance and service delivery across channels. Real-time contextual insight ensures a customer receives the right offer at the right time, at every touch point.

Join Redknee’s Chief Marketing Officer Chris Newton-Smith and Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Sandra O’Boyle to discuss the end-to-end digital customer journey and how catalog-driven BSS helps to build and deliver innovative services and partnerships, as well as improve customer engagement and digital marketing.

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.
