The New World of Heterogeneity in recent decades PCs have become the standard platform of choice, very
predictable with Windows and MS Office. But the rise of mobile technology, device-independent computing, and cloud-based services is bringing heterogeneity and complexity back. This is a time of opportunity, with a foment of innovation that hasn't existed for years. Mr. Gruman will share insights into critical trends we’re witnessing take shape right now.
