As we continue into the twenty-first century, one has to consider the importance of technology and its ever-growing influence in today’s world. Technology has allowed us to eliminate the physical boundaries of geography and create a space where data can be relayed throughout the world in a blink of an eye. In other words, communication has become part of a daily necessity. The use of cellular phones has grown exponentially since it was first made available to the public in 1984, when they were still large, bulky, and expensive. Today, almost everywhere you go, everybody has a cell phone. Sizes, shapes, and features vary, but they grow smaller and faster every year. It is not just the technology of phones that one must analyze, but the mobile service that is provided as well. In the United States, we have three major existing wireless service providers: AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile. These carriers sell their service along with phones that are manufactured by Motorola, LG, Nokia, Blackberry, Apple, Samsung, and many more. We will focus on Verizon Wireless and how they utilize technology. We will also address the role of management, real estate, and future endeavors that lie ahead. Responsibilities: Ashley’s role in the group is to address not only the current state of IT, but also what role management plays in our company, Verizon Wireless. She will largely discuss the future of our company and our potential future competitors. Robert’s role in the group is to discuss the financial situation of our company and our competitors as well as the importance of management. Steve’s responsibility is to address how real estate plays an important role in the success of our company and what measures Verizon has taken that gives us an edge in the market. As group leader, Amit’s responsibility in this group is address the importance of each of the previously mentioned functions and how they have collectively made Verizon a top player. He is also responsible for making sure that all group members complete their tasks and address all important questions in regards to what lies ahead for the future of not only our company, but the industry as well. Topic: Our primary objective is to strengthen our company by becoming the number one wireless service provider, over our biggest competitor, AT&T, who currently is ranked as number one. Although we trail AT&T in the volume of service provided, Verizon is currently ranked number one in overall revenue, and we would like to maintain this position.
