Three industry bodies recently joined forces to tackle the issues facing the software publishing sector.
The Software-as a-Service Myth or Reality? event was held by software body Fast IiS, UK trade association Intellect and the knowledge transfer network Grid Computing Now!
With 60 attendees, the show focused on virtualisation and development of commercial and web services. John Lovelock, chief executive of Fast IiS, said: “We will run more events in the next few months. It helps the whole eco-system by discussing issues before they get messy.”
Jon Pyke, chief strategy officer at Cordys, said: “Events like these will help the channel take advantage of new opportunities.”
