The CloudConnect Launch Pad Finalists!

Voting time! With a hat tip to Paige Finkelman for doing such a great job herding jurors – the final eight entries for the Cloud Connect Launch Pad are here! All eight have produced demo videos and you can vote for your favorite here.

As a juror it would be inappropriate for me to give my impressions about the offerings before voting has finished – suffice it to say there’s several offerings in the lineup that take my fancy but that parochialism has gotten the better of me ;-) The four videos with the most votes will be announced on February 18, 2010 and interact live on the show floor at the Cloud Connect Conference on March 15th – 18th, 2010.
