Don’t you wish sometimes that you had a crystal ball showing you what technology is coming down the pipe and if it’s going to disrupt your status quo? It would just make life so much easier. No more guessing what the CIO is going to insist be deployed ASAP just because he read about it in PC magazine. You’d be ready for it already. No more jumping through hoops because a competing company is harnessing IT innovations allowing them to steal your customers and undercut your business. You’d be doing it already.
Ok well, we can’t quite show you the future, but we can give you 30 minutes with Mary Jo Foley. Mary Jo has been covering the tech industry for over 25 years focusing specifically on Microsoft and Microsoft technologies for most of that time. She has had a front row seat, watching, observing and chronicling new advances and innovations as they’ve unfolded, putting her in a unique position to be able to understand how certain trends will likely impact the industry.
