Connecting with the Future Global Digital Economy
The mobile internet revolution has become the most powerful innovation engine on earth, transforming every industry, every business and every society it touches. And it is really just beginning.
By 2030 as many as 50 billion devices are expected to be connected to the internet of things and the fact that connected “things” (as opposed to connected people) is today the fastest growing part of the mobiles business is a clear indication of the rapid changes underway in the telecommunications sector, and in Telstra itself, as it builds world class capabilities for the future.
In the face of dramatic change Telstra CEO Andrew Penn is a self-proclaimed technology optimist. He sees great opportunity for those who embrace technology innovation.
