TORONTO, Canada – Sigma Systems, the global leader in catalog-driven software, announced today that it will be presenting at TM Forum Live! Asia in partnership with Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications and technology company.

Sigma’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Catherine Michel, will be on stage with Telstra’s Chief Technology Officer (Customer), Dr. Fawad Nazir, to discuss why traditional service providers must adopt a “digital native” mindset and the corresponding operational agility to thrive in a digital economy.  The ability to create and launch new offers in minutes, rather than months, and rapidly enable new business models is critical to an operator’s success.

“Sigma Catalog creates the ability to sell through and then orchestrate the fulfillment of an order from different channels into the full B/OSS stack and across various delivery networks.  The product’s Offer Canvas capability allows businesses to ‘componentize’ whatever types of service capability it offers into entities that are immediately operational in their systems and networks,” says Catherine Michel, Sigma Systems CTO.

The presentation will take place on Wednesday December 6, 2017 at 2:25pm.  To learn more about Sigma’s presence at TM Forum Live! Asia, please click here.

TORONTO, Canada – Sigma Systems, the global leader in catalog-driven software, announced today that its Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel, will be presenting alongside Windstream’s VP of IT Transformation & Architecture, Joe Johnson, at Dreamforce this year.

As part of Sigma’s sponsorship of Dreamforce 2017, Catherine Michel will discuss why the digital channel is the battleground between traditional service providers and new start-ups run by digital natives. While over-the-top players and digitally native organizations continue to serve up new market innovations and connect with their customers at deeper and more relevant levels, service providers risk being left behind. Sigma believes operators must rise to the challenge using digital channel transformation to reconnect with their customers, drive engagement, and ultimately deliver more sales.

Joe Johnson will highlight Windstream’s strategy for evolving their sales channels and delivering meaningful customer interactions, taking a catalog-driven approach. He will walk through the operator’s Salesforce deployment journey as they integrate Sigma Configure Price Quote (CPQ) to streamline the quote and order process, dramatically improve order accuracy and reduce manual intervention.

Sigma and Windstream’s joint presentation will take place on Wednesday November 8th at 4:30pm in the Campground Industry Theatre. For further information about Sigma’s presence at Dreamforce, click here.
