What is ATT up to in the cloud?

December 9, 2009

A couple of weeks ago I was in New York to visit customers and attend the co-located Interop and Web 2.0 events.  One of the attendees/participants I got to know there was Joe Weinman, VP of ATT’s Business Solutions.  Joe has been focusing a lot on the cloud lately so I thought I’d put down for posterity his thoughts and explanation of what ATT is up to in this space.

Some of the topics that Joe tackles:

  • ATT’s evolving strategy involves mix of managed endpoints and a variety of network services as well as a variety of services in the cloud.
  • ATT’s services range from infrastructure services like “Synaptic hosting,” storage as a service and compute as a service thru a variety of SaaS apps like unified comms and collaboration,  SAP,  Oracle ebiz suite, Seybold and JD Edwards.
  • They have a large platform as a service offering that is used by tens of thousands developers creating at mobile enterprise apps.
  • They target a wide variety of endpoints e.g.  iphones,windows mobile devices,  netbooks, black berries  all the way thru tele-presence rooms.
  • How ATT delivers on both front end and back end architectures.

Pau for now…
