Vendorwag in the Valley – Xsigo

As with the other videos in the “Vendorwag in the Valley” we have diced & sliced them into 4 courses.

As with the other videos in the “Vendorwag in the Valley” we have diced & sliced them into 4 courses. First video is the “elevator pitch” which gives an introduction from Jon Toor about who Xsigo are, what they do, and what their unique value-proposition is. Watch this video if you have never come across Xsigo before. The second video is a slightly more technical video were we discuss in detail the advantages and disadvantages of the solution. Cam and I had sooo much discuss we ended up doing two videos (part 1/2) rather than making one jumbo-sized discussion. I feel these two video as techy as the 4th video.

The forth video is for the geeks who are in technical stuff – learn more about how it works with the Techknowlegy Demo series.
