Today’s buzz: The cloud.
Where were you at 10:26 am GMT on Jan. 22, 2011? That’s when the 10 billionth app was downloaded from the Apple App Store. Apple’s iconic success paved the way for how your business and, more importantly, your employees now access software.
Alan Lepofsky notes, “Via the App Store and the ‘There’s an app for that'” marketing campaign, Apple rapidly changed the way people add features and functions to their mobile devices…Now that same approach is making inroads in the business world.”
