As our devices get smarter there is increased convergence between all screens – television, smartphone and computer – as services become integrated and accessible through the customers’ device of choice. This partnership puts the power of the cloud at our customers’ fingertips, empowering them with higher levels of connectivity with the people and things that are most important to them”.
