WOW participated as an exhibitor and a media sponsor of Interop 2009 that took place last week in Las Vegas, NV. Participation in this year’s Interop marks a milestone of sorts since WOW celebrated our tenth year anniversary of participation on the Interop exhibit floor.
In celebration, WOW invited Verio, the global leader in Web hosting to participate in the WOW booth and to participate in the launch of the IT Buyer Guide initiative connecting IT buyers and sellers.
Previously known as “NetWorld+Interop” the week long event is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S. Conference tracks and expo covered a wide variety of IT topics including data center and communication technologies, storage and security, enterprise 2.0, virtualization, VoIP and unified communications, networking, wireless & mobility.
For today’s podcast, I’m pleased to present an interview with Tony Byrne, Founder of CMS Watch, .a vendor-neutral firm that evaluates content technologies and publishes reports comparing different solutions head-to-head. Tony is a long time collaborator with the WOW organization and just so happened to be exhibiting in the booth next to WOW’s. Tony shares his thoughts on the overall event and his take on the IT economy in general.
I’d like to give a special shout out to Tony for the interview, Janine Soika and Scott Schafer at Verio Inc. for their support of the WOW and for helping us celebrating our tenth year anniversary at Interop 2009 Las Vegas. If you can spare a few minutes, please check out the interview with Janine Soika, Director of Channel Marketing at Verio Inc. as well as a dozen or so of the initial interviews on the IT Buyer Guide Also, be sure to bookmark this site for the many more interviews to follow.
