LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 4 December 2013 – IEEE Computer Society today announced that it will host the premier gathering of mobile cloud experts in Boston on May 6 to drive forward the future of mobile cloud computing. These experts say that mobile and cloud computing are converging, creating a new platform that will allow for better synchronization of data, improved scalability, anytime-anywhere access, richer user experiences, and an explosion of new services. According to International Data Corp., by 2020 at least 80 percent of the information and communication technology industry's growth will be driven by these so-called Third Platform technologies.
