Despite its networking roots, today’s Interop events have evolved to address an expansive range of IT roles, responsibilities and topics. While networking managers will still feel at home in the networking track, Interop addresses a variety of themes very relevant to the broader interests of IT Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) professionals, like cloud computing, virtualization, storage, wireless and mobility, and IT management.

IT professionals responsible for the “I” (or Infrastructure) in I&O will find the event particularly relevant. So much so that Forrester has partnered with Interop to develop track agendas, identify speakers, moderate panels, and even present. For the last two years, I have chaired the Data Center and Green IT tracks at Interop’s Las Vegas and New York events. And I am doing the same this year at Interop New York 2010 from October 18th to 22nd

So what will Interop New York 2010 offer I&O professionals? Check out my blog post here on the Interop website.

And if you or a colleague are attending the event, let’s try to meet up… and maybe I can “sneak” one or two of you into the coveted media lounge (aka the coffee, cookie and wi-fi oasis). Send me an email at

See you in October,
