The editors of Network Computing highlight seven interesting technologies to check out at the 2014 Interop conference in New York City.

In a walk-up to the 2014 Interop show in New York City, which officially kicks off on Monday, September 29, Network Computing Managing Editor Marcia Savage takes a look at seven hot technologies that are sure to dominate the conference this year.

There are clearly some obvious choices that IT professionals, network administrators, and CIOs have been keeping a close eye on for years, such as mobile devices and cloud computing. However, how do trends such as software-defined networking (SDN) or the Internet of Things fit into the picture?

What do IT professionals need to know to do their jobs better and make their companies more efficient?

One way for Interop attendees to answer these questions is to use some of the exhibits on the showroom floor, such as the InteropNet SDN Lab. "For the past 28 years, volunteers have built the InteropNet from scratch to provide the IT environment and network connectivity to all the exhibitors and attendees at the Interop conference," says Savage.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood.

Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
