Magic Software

Organizations are facing unprecedented business challenges. Compounding these challenges is the changing nature of work demographics and practices that features a growing proportion of employees now working from home or on the road. These mobile workers still need to access corporate data and collaborate with their peers. However, much of the costly software used by organizations was not designed to respond to a rapidly changing marketplace or highly dispersed workforce.

These challenges and trends have fueled the growth of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), as well as the emergence of new application platforms that are attractive alternatives to traditional on-premise software and systems.

This webinar will examine the challenges and opportunities faced by enterprise IT and ISV's, and will discuss how new software paradigms and platforms can help companies better achieve their business objectives, while significantly reducing their TCO.

Why Attend?
  • Get the latest RIA and SaaS trends
  • Learn how to leverage new technologies to overcome the recession
  • Learn how to reduce TCO while improving customer-application engagement
