The holidays are officially upon us. The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and sugar-plums (aka iPads and Wii games) are dancing in children’s heads. And beyond thinking about family coming into town, or all the gifts you still haven’t crossed off your list, I’m sure you’re still working up to those early 2016 trade shows.

It is common to walk into a university library and see students studying with nothing but a laptop—the books on the shelves acting as nothing but wall art. Many argue that technology is killing communication, but universities and colleges know differently. They understand that technology is actually improving and enhancing communications. In fact, students and teachers alike expect collaboration outside the classroom to occur effortlessly, with […]
Channel Partners 2015 is here and our Jive crew is in full force at the Mandalay Bay Expo Hall.
