Mobile, Social, and cloud computing are driving huge changes in how enterprises connect and engage with their customers and employees. This changes the way information technology (IT) needs to work. There’s a shift underway in enterprises and even in government agencies from a world of messaging platforms to collaboration platforms - platforms for real-time connectivity and collaboration across boundaries and firewalls that enable machine-to-machine, person-to-person, B2B, and B2C interactions and transactions. Social networking concepts and the growing apps economy are at the heart of this transformation.

AT&T, the world’s largest communications holding company by revenue, has embarked on an aggressive campaign to expand its internal innovation capability by opening up its vast telecom network to standard web application program interfaces (APIs). In doing so, it has accelerated innovation by allowing more developers to quickly produce apps that run on the AT&T network. Through the AT&T API Platform, which runs on the Apigee Enterprise API management service, AT&T now has a rapid deployment method for value-added mobile applications, many of which are designed by small firms that previously did not have the resources to commit to AT&T.
Jon Summers, Senior Vice President of Applications and Services Infrastructure, has led the API program at AT&T to help developers get up and running quickly.
