Thirty years ago, Interop began as a simple gathering to test networking protocols. Shortly thereafter, companies started registering for their own Internet domains, and the World Wide Web spread like wildfire.

Corporate and consumer usage has blossomed, and today most of us can't imagine living with the wealth of information the Internet provides at our fingertips – some of it indispensable, some of it utterly silly. Interop has evolved in stop, becoming a global technology conference on cloud computing, data centers, mobility, IoT and the IT leadership challenges of doing business in the digital age.
