Here’s an interesting question. How many more projects would chief technologists take on if both the cost and the amount of time it took to set up a proof-of-concept demonstration were virtually nil?

The company wants to extend that concept out to technologists of all types that can now use the service to test any number of applications that are pre-loaded into the cloud computing platform, or can be loaded into the system by any registered user.
