Interop, the leading independent technology conference and expo series designed to inform, inspire, and connect the world’s IT community, has been taking place this week in Las Vegas for its flagship event. While we were not able to attend in person, we’ve been attending virtually and had some good geeky fun with the extremely engaged Twitter stream. Thank you to everyone who posted pictures, updates and quotes. We definitely didn’t feel left out!
For those of you who have not been following all the action, we have you covered. Here are the highlights:
There have been some interesting revelations…
Conclusion from 1st #interop day: there’s a whole lot of companies that don’t yet realize they are IT businesses.
