ATT Keynote

AT&T Senior Executive Vice President Delivers Scintillating Keynote at WITS 2015


Data can drive better and faster decisions even at the largest firms such as AT&T. But only if everyone understands the value of a cohesive game plan. AT&T has helped connect the world for 140 years, and that only gets truer as we connect the world’s data through the Internet of Things. At WITS 2015 in Dallas, John Donovan’s keynote highlighted the impact Big Data will have in an increasingly more connected world, AT&T’s own Big Data initiative, and internal and external use cases.
