Collaboration in the Cloud

March 22, 2010 - 0 Comments

Clouds. Cloudy. Cloudless. Partially cloudy? Clear as day?

Trying to figure it all out


Seems I hear the word “cloud” an awful lot these days. Cisco did a funny video on “what is cloud computing” that calls out what we all know – “cloud” is a word often used and frequently understood. When it comes to putting your collaboration tools into the cloud, it all becomes even more confusing. TechWiseTV is addressing this whole “collaboration in the cloud” notion head on! Join us for these upcoming events as we find out if the forecast is cloudy, but clear!
