Twitter Chat Hosted by HP – #NewStyleIT
Online, October 16, 2013 

Twitter chat #NewstyleITJoin in to a live text chat on Twitter, from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST, on October 16th.  We’re going to be discussing how to use mobile and cloud technology to allow employees to work when they want, where they want, how they want. Your employees want to use their own devices — especially tablets and smartphones. But that can pose security issues. It also requires that connecting technologies work well with various devices – for instance, software needs to work seamlessly. And when it comes to printing, there are variety of efficiency advantages, such as direct mobile to print, or direct connection from cloud storage services such as HP Flow CM, or Google Docs. If you’re not familiar with the latest technologies, you may be surprised at what you can do.

At the appointed time, just go to, and search on the hashtag #NewStyleIT to see who is participating and follow the discussion.  And to join in, just start tweeting with the hashtag #NewStyleIT in your tweets.  See you there!

  1. Oooh a Twitter chat event. I am pretty sure that lots of people from all over the world will attend this event. I am excited to meet lots of new people. Who knows? I may be able to learn from them as well. This is also kind of interesting for me because of Twitter’s text limit.
