Emerging Business Markets applies AT&T Foundry® principles to everything we do. Openness, collaboration, innovation and agility all play a central role.
Our first order of business was to establish and execute a new distribution model. The transformative reseller program (AT&T Partner ExchangeSM) was operational in less than 90 days. Through collaboration with solution providers, we’re expanding our reach and delivering more tailor-made mobility, cloud and IP networking solutions to companies across a number of industries.
We’re doing things differently and “breaking glass” to unlock more opportunities. One example is our new API platform that is redefining the customer experience and opening doors to innovation for solution providers.
Our API platform makes it easier for solution providers to do business with us. It accelerates our processes. Solution providers can connect to the secure gateway to access the APIs that interact directly with core AT&T systems. The APIs enable solution providers to provide quotes to their customers for select AT&T products nationwide in seconds, and orders have flowed to field engineers within minutes of being submitted. All because of APIs.
But it doesn’t stop here. We will also be making the platform available for third parties. They’ll be able to connect and create applications and value-added services to support AT&T’s expanding roster of solution providers in the program. The platform is also being made available to AT&T’s other indirect channels.
