AT&T Squashing Debate
@Kelsey, great thoughtful piece.  He truly understands the difference between transformation - to fully use the value of technology - versus development - trying to just change the outcomes.

Open source provides a new synergy that the isolated communications channels cannot match.  Building this new platform, and layering new open source evolutions that "apply" the platform to the users' needs makes great sense.

AT&T is definitely showing the leadership qualities you outline - they deserve to be a leading innovator and to reap the rewards.

Best for AT&T
I say out with old and in with the new of whatever that is not working. Keep what is usable and valuable for AT&T.

I like the way he put it: ""SDN isn't a pipe dream, it's a mathematical formula."

Re: Best for AT&T
@clrmoney, good vision.  I think that is what AT&T is doing is building the platforms that enable them to deliver what is working for their customers.  I think they will succeed with this full capability solution, as opposed to an "either/or" option.  Don't you?

Re: Best for AT&T
@Ariella, I share your agreement on this.  That is what makes this "real".  As we incresingly build models of solutions and apply technology it will provide the proof of concept and advance the opportunities.

AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
This guy had me on "Women adopt a lot faster in these environments than men." That's a huge statement coming from a CEO at a major corporation. Breaking down the debate society and moving toward open source is like demolishing a building. They are breaking down those old, tired walls with sledghammers and just going for it. Gone are the days where middle management just "freezes." Kudos to AT&T for its efforts. Soon, it will be an entirely new organization, hopefully with more women batting for the fences.

Re: AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
Big companies need to move fast in this environment. I like how AT&T isn't fighting this current and just working within it. 

This could reap the company huge gains in the future.

Re: AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
Look at what happened to Ford as it ousted its CEO--you have to realize the trends, improvise and adapt.    But what will make things even more interesting is if in fact T-Mobile and Sprint finally do the impossible--and merge as noted in today's USA Today.

Re: AT&T Squashing Debate
@DHagar, I agree. He is a truly visionary leader. Now if only all company executives were like him. I can dream can't I.

The key to remaining successful in any industry is to continue to transform, expand and grow because there will always be some company that willl think of ways to do what you do better, faster, for less money and in a more efficient manner.

Re: Best for AT&T
@clrmoney, in this case the is true. However, that may not work for every company. Some companies can use old and new or just get rid of all the old and get new like AT&T.
