Corporate Tech Decisions attended InterOp New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City on October 1st. InterOp is the leading independent technology conference and expo designed to inspire, inform, and connect the world’s IT community. Through in-depth educational programs and real-world demos, Interop showcases the most powerful innovations and solutions the industry has to offer and provides the forum for the world’s largest celebration of IT professionals. Interop Las Vegas is the flagship event held each spring, with Interop New York held each fall, and annual international events in London, India and Tokyo.
We met with many interesting and innovative companies throughout the show, and virtually every aspect of the IT field was represented at the show. Especially prevalent were solutions for managing, creating, and optimizing data centers in order to increase bandwidth. Security was also a large player at the show. Many exhibitors were showcasing solutions to better secure networks in companies, disaster recovery and prevention, and especially mobile security for the BYOD threats that still loom over companies. In addition, rack manufacturers were on full display to house all of the equipment being sold around them.
