By now we hope you’ve heard and read of Flexiant Concerto, the simple solution to multi-cloud application management and portability. On Tuesday next week, October 21st, we want you to see it in action.
Join our VP of Product, Marco Meinardi and VP of Development Javier Perez-Griffo as they demo Flexiant Concerto.

Next generation applications are the next big cloud revenue generating opportunity for managed service providers and telcos. To service these apps, born in the cloud and for the cloud, service providers need to make the lives of next generation app developers easier by saving them time and allowing them to focus on their core business logic.
In 1993, there were 14 million Internet users. Today, there are nearly three billion according to Internet Live Stats. The global smartphone market will reach 1.75 billion in 2014 according to eMarketer. And there are 10 billion Internet connected devices today, predicted to swell to 50 billion by 2020. Now consider most of what makes the Internet and smartphones interesting is the apps that are on them. An impressive and growing number of users are interacting daily through applications hosted in the cloud. Hosting these applications is now a tremendous opportunity for service providers.
