Ralph de la Vega, president and chief executive officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, highlighted the importance of innovation and collaboration to the mobile industry in a keynote address to the CTIA Enterprise & Applications Conference earlier this week.
Speaking at the conference in San Diego, Calif., the CEO focused on how the industry is changing with the deployment of social networking, mobile applications, cloud computing and advanced mobile devices.
“It’s the perfect storm of innovation,” de la Vega said. “In this highly dynamic environment, it’s clear that collaboration is the key to ongoing innovation.”
de la Vega said that the new era of innovation and collaboration is also apparent in AT&T wireless solutions for businesses and in the exponential growth of machine-to-machine emerging devices for consumers.
“We’re driving innovation across our economy at a time when it’s needed the most,” he said. “But it’s the human scale – putting all the technology to work for people – that we can be the most proud of.”
