The demonstration will show how Zapp automation slashes the bulk of manual labor, time, costs, and error typically involved in on-boarding complex enterprise applications.

Where: Rackspace, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA - Booth #301/309

When: Nov 6th @ 5:15 PT and Nov 7th @ 10:15 PT

Why: AppZero is an active partner in Rackspace's Cloud Tools Marketplace eco-system, recognized for rapid and simplified on-boarding/migration of complex Windows production applications.

Who: This demo will appeal to anyone interested in, or responsible for moving enterprise applications to or from datacenters and clouds. It will be of particular interest to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) looking to increase their MRR by giving their customers a solution that easily migrates applications to their cloud.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
