Keeping up with software technology is really hard. We are living in very exciting times for the software industry as we are witnessing revolutions in areas such as cloud computing, mobility, NOSQL databases among others that are changing the way we think and implement applications. Together with that excitement comes the challenge for organizations to develop intelligent strategies to embrace those technologies in a way that improves agility and efficiency in their applications. Not embracing these technology movements can result on competitive disadvantages. To cite an example, over the last year we have seen an increasing interest among our Microsoft customer to embrace technologies such as NOSQL database, Android or cloud infrastructures.
Over the last two years, Tellago has developed some internal programs that allow us to keep up to date with the most relevant technologies across a variety of spaces such as enterprise software, open source, cloud computing, mobility and other technology areas that are changing the enterprise software ecosystem. Those programs have allowed us to adopt new technologies really efficiently in our daily work with customers.
Earlier this year, we made the commitment to share some of that knowledge and experience with our customers and the community in general so that they can benefit from it and, at the same token, share some of their experiences and viewpoints.
Today, we are really pleased to announce the Tellago Technology Updates series. This program is a periodic series of webinar that will explore in detail debate some of the emerging technologies in the software industry as well as some of our implementation experiences. These Technology Updates are targeted to both IT executives trying to adopt these new technologies as well as developers and architects trying to implement them.

BOTTOM LINE, WHETHER YOU ARE AN IT EXECUTIVE, ARCHITECT OR DEVELOPER INTERESTED ON UNDERSTANDING SOME OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES, YOU SHOULD NOT MISS THE TELLAGO TECHNOLOGY UPDATES SERIES!!!!!
Here are the first two meetings of the series:
