Emerging P2P technology looks to be quite relevant to enterprise needs:
aggregated computation and storage, distributed content caching & virus
checking, inter-enterprise application integration, dynamic interpersonal
collaboration, and more.
But enterprise demands are unique in terms of infrastructure integration &
impact, systems management, integration, security, service and support.
Expectations of enterprise customers are somewhat daunting, but the
rewards are clear.
This panel will discuss the enterprise issues as they relate to the unique
nature of peer-to-peer technology.
