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.
This Melbourne event will be a live video stream of the the CTO event running in Sydney. It includes a light sandwich lunch to be served from 12.15pm. Formalities will commence from 12.40pm. Andy Penn's presentation will commence at 1pm and after some audience Q&A, will be followed by the presentation of the 2015 Charles Todd Medal Winner at 2pm.
