Re: 80% in the cloud
@afwriter: To be fair, AT&T's not alone in that regard!  ;)

There is a billboard on Rte. 1, just north of Boston, for Verizon with a slogan something along the lines of "Better Matters" -- the idea being that Verizon's network is allegedly so much better than its competitors that no other consideration in selecting a carrier (e.g., cost) should play that significant a factor.

So I'm sure they see themselves as a leader too.  ;)

Re: Is AT&T the Real Deal?
I know how you can lower your bill: switch.  ;)

That's what I did.  But now sometimes I regret it because now my service is worse.  Saving a bunch of money, but you get what you pay for.

Re: Survival
Indeed, it just doesn't make sense these days for carriers to keep a lot of their data on prem or stick with legacy hardware without virtualization.  The costs can be very problematic considering the volume and quality and ubiquity of the data they're dealing with.  Cloud and virtualization only make sense.

Re: Is AT&T the Real Deal?
@afwriter I use At&T for my cell service. Its service is much better than TMobile's, I've found. I'm sure there are cheaper services, but I'd rather have something reliable even if it costs a bit more.

Even though I am not a cutomer of AT&T, I admire what they are trying to do here. I like the fact that they are being open and honest about their aggressiveness and that is simply because of survival. AT&T needs to keep up with the other carriers and this is the way to do it!

I also like the fact tat AT&T are moving more and more things to the cloud and they're doing it in a fast fashion. They seem to be very inspired and want to take this company to the next level.

Re: Is AT&T the Real Deal?
AT&T is the front runner in terms of virtualization and other companies large and small can take a lesson from them. If virtualization either full or partial will save your company money over time it makes sense to switch. However, this requires skilled employees that can successful convert the environment as well as maintain it. Many companies are afraid of change and don't want to spend the money upfront that thinking may cost them in the future.

Is AT&T the Real Deal?
I have not always been a fan of the company even though I am a subscriber.  Since joining this site I have gained a new respect for their ideas and proactivity for the future of mobile.  Now if only I could figure out how to lower my bill.

Re: 80% in the cloud
If they don't I bet they will get close.  AT&T seems to be really serious about being the leader in the future of mobile technologies.

80% in the cloud
That really is quite an advancement on that front. Do you think they will live up to that prediction?
