The editors of Network Computing highlight seven interesting technologies to check out at the 2014 Interop conference in New York City.NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — When it comes to identifying the most cutting-edge technologies that IT professionals should be investigating, where do you begin? Network Computing is offering a few answers.
In a walk-up to the 2014 Interop show in New York City, which officially kicks off on Monday, September 29, Network Computing Managing Editor Marcia Savage takes a look at seven hot technologies that are sure to dominate the conference this year.
There are clearly some obvious choices that IT professionals, network administrators, and CIOs have been keeping a close eye on for years, such as mobile devices and cloud computing. However, how do trends such as software-defined networking (SDN) or the Internet of Things fit into the picture?
What do IT professionals need to know to do their jobs better and make their companies more efficient?
One way for Interop attendees to answer these questions is to use some of the exhibits on the showroom floor, such as the InteropNet SDN Lab. "For the past 28 years, volunteers have built the InteropNet from scratch to provide the IT environment and network connectivity to all the exhibitors and attendees at the Interop conference," says Savage.
