A SoMoClo™ Evening: Social Mobile Cloud
Friday, November 18, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Come spend your Friday night learning about SoMoClo while drinking some fresh, FREE BEER!
Social Mobile and Cloud are one thing, not three – hence the name: SoMoClo. Cloud is the core, mobile its edge, and social the connections between endpoints. It places the disruptive technologies that are transforming businesses in context, and describes the technical and services infrastructure needed to provide that ideal end-user experience where everyone's connected (social), everywhere they go (mobile), and have access to data when they need it (cloud).
