Re: AT&T's Automation Key for Speed/Efficiency
@Mike, excellent interview and insights on AT&T's leading position in automation.

I did not realize that Amy, and AT&T, had been developing these capabilities over the past 15 years.  I guess that is an excellent example of "overnight success" and luck being preparation for opportunities.

I believe your question about machine learning has even greater significance than just another channel for automation.  I see the machine learning capability as the ability to
"collect" and "use data" in new ways; which becomes a direct feedback loop with greater intelligence about the results coming from the automation.

I truly applaud AT&T's upskilling commitment.  They have all the pieces to make this work!

Re: AT&T's Automation Key for Speed/Efficiency
Thanks DHagar. I'm looking forward to hearing her and Level 3's Dugan speak on our SDN webinar on Thursday. While both AT&T and Level 3 have been at the forefront of SDN/NFV, they've taken different paths.

15 years ago? This is why AT&T has been at the forefront of SDN. They company saw it happening before its own eyes.

@dcawrey You have to plan far in advance to be at the technological edge. I do hope Indigo lives up to the promise stated here: "Indigo will enable every element of our network to become more seamless, efficient and capable."

AT&T Longevity having Automation
AT&T has been here for a long time offerring great customer service and products. I think with automation just increases the services of what they have to offer. I think it is a good thing in the long run.

Re: AT&T Longevity having Automation
It will be interesting how they continue to evolve especially as they gear up to "eat up" Time Warner.

Re: AT&T Longevity having Automation
I have no opinion one way or the other.  Some of the content available by the soon to be AT&T/Time Warner combination is interesting (for instance HBO & John Oliver) which I hope it continues and the need to educate always is at the heart of it--that's the key (since you were gracious enough to ask).   The need, though, to make sure humans continue to be central should not be forgotten.
