Back in April, we debuted Smarter Computing’s “What’s Next for IT?” video debates, a series of stimulating one-hour debates on cloud, data and security topics that are being discussed daily inside business organizations.
After an exciting year, we thought the video debate series deserved its own highlight reel, so we’re breaking it down by the numbers and by the best clips.
