This made the Asian trip doubly worthwhile: you could see your Taiwan vendors and catch some of your European customers at the Continue reading...

It’s not very global and it’s oriented towards corporate users who get more at a Gartner conference.

We did find one that might be of interest our audience:

Executive Labs Information Technology (No. 1, March 4th)
