Beyond Clouds: From Technology, to SaaS-Driven Businesses


In a flash interview with Retail Associates CEO Bo Lundqvist at the “Future-Proof Tech Summit“, he shed light on the tagline “Beyond Clouds” to actually refer to the event’s aim to go beyond just technology, in to actual “business“.

That was the central message in most of the technology and business presentations at the Future-Proof Tech Summit, organized by Retail Associates, held at Makati Diamond Residences earlier today.
