Event Details

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).

This event will explore the opportunities that SoMoClo presents to startups, as well as to more established businesses.  A panel of experts will discuss the impact of the SoMoClo phenomenon on both the consumer and the enterprise.  A highly interactive Q&A session will close the evening, with attendees invited to present their SoMoClo business challenges to the experts for comment and advice.

Panelists include:
