Join us on September 26 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. In addition to an exclusive chat with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson, and an in-studio interview with CitiGroup CTO Yobie Benjamin, we'll feature our new Elevator Pitch session, a rapid-fire deluge of information about new technology approaches.

One company's elevator pitch we'll be highlighting: Cliqr Technologies.

Cliqr promises businesses a way to migrate enterprise applications to the cloud (with some possible within a day!), and manage those applications security. CEO Gaurav Manglik says that his company's approach doesn't require modifications to applications that tie them to a specific cloud provider, thus also making it easy to migrate applications between clouds, preventing lock in.

Other Elevator Pitches featured: Appthority (Mobile Security), Kontiki (Enterprise Video), Crowdstrike (Enterprise Security), Fusion-io (flash memory for the data center).
