I’m enjoying my introduction to the world of David Pogue and Robert Scoble as an invited tech journalist to the GENBAND Perspectives15 conference in Orlando, Florida.
One of the perks is the chance to sit down with some interesting people and learn more about emerging technologies and communications platforms that will be part of software and apps in the near future. I covered some of the recent developments in the area of cloud communication in a recent Newsfactor article (Twilio Adds Video Tool for Software Developers), and it will be interesting to compare and contrast the approach that GENBAND is taking in this dynamic area. I’ll be posting more about various developments over the course of the week.
It was particularly interesting to sit down with two of GENBAND’s senior executives, Chief Marketing Officer Patrick Joggerst and Solutions Marketing Director Greg Zweig, and get their perspectives on the role that cloud computing is playing in communications in general, but also specifically in energy efficiency, infrastructure upgrades, and app development. I look forward to exploring these issues in more depth.
