Current organizers of Interop recognize its changing role over the years. The current general manager of the show, Jennifer Jessup, says it will continue to evolve.
“Networking is cool, essential,” she writes. “Networking is open systems, open source, infrastructure as code, software-defined everything. Internet of Things is the next market set to explode - IoT becomes a reality only through the network of data between devices, sensors and systems. Bottom line is networking now requires new skills and new technologies…From this point forward Interop pledges to embrace the network and the technologies that feed off of it.”
