AT&T has signed a multi-year agreement to use IBM’s expertise to modernize AT&T Business Solutions’ internal software applications, enabling migrations to the IBM Cloud.

In addition, IBM will provide infrastructure to support AT&T Business’s applications. AT&T Business will utilize Red Hat's open source platform to manage workloads and applications. The improvements will allow AT&T Business to better serve enterprise customers.

IBM will also make AT&T Business its primary provider of software defined networking.  AT&T Business will help transform IBM’s networking solutions with their latest technologies including 5G, Edge Compute, and IOT as well as multi-cloud capabilities using Red Hat. This builds on the existing relationship where AT&T Business is IBM’s strategic global networking provider.

IBM will be the primary developer and cloud provider for AT&T Business’s operational applications and will help manage the AT&T Communications IT infrastructure, on and off-premises and across different clouds –private and public.  This approach will enable AT&T Business to build and deploy internal application workloads, and deliver new, innovative services.

The two companies will also collaborate on edge computing platforms, which will help enterprise clients capitalize on the power of 5G network speeds and the internet-connected devices and sensors at the edge of the network.

Thaddeus Arroyo, CEO of AT&T Business
This includes optimizing our core operations and modernizing our internal business applications to accelerate innovation. Through our collaboration with IBM, we’re adopting open, flexible, cloud technologies, that will ultimately help accelerate our business leadership.
