Mobile technology is changing by the minute; sometimes you just can’t catch it all. Here’s what you might have missed this week:
We are proud to announce that AirWatch by VMware has been recognized by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) as one of the Top 10 companies of the Decade and Top 40 companies of 2013. AirWatch senior vice president and general manager John Marshall and VMware President and COO Carl Eschenbach accepted the awards. Both executives spoke to a crowd over 100 of Atlanta’s top innovators and entrepreneurs. Stay tuned for the keynote video and full event recap.
