11 May 2012 |


Robert Wise has been appointed chief innovation officer at MTN Satellite Communications. Wise was previously engineering VP in HP’s public cloud computing effort, where he led the engineering team for HP’s mobile/cloud-based music project, and was instrumental in HP’s adoption of OpenStack software.

“MTN is focussed on specific areas of rampant industry innovation including cloud computing and mobile applications, for the world of satellite communications,” said Wise. “Communities served primarily by satellite links have not seen the same pace of innovation, and we are going to change that.”
