Interop has 30 years of experience in the IT field, with its trade shows held at Mumbai (India), Tokyo (Japan), London (UK) and Las Vegas each year. The most recent show, Interop ITX, was  May 15-19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Leading tech vendors who presented at Interop were in the running for one of its Best of Interop ITX awards. They’re broken down into five different categories (Cloud, Data & Analytics, DevOps, Infrastructure, and Security) with the vendors judged for their innovative tech, news briefings, vendor presentations at the conference, and how practical their products are for businesses.
