Phil Wainewright writes about this event on ZDNet: Polymaths see the bigger picture

The New Polymath is about the new world where companies are learning to innovate by compounding 3, 5, 10 components from infotech, biotech, cleantech. healthtech. Cloud Computing is a clear example of Polymath application in infotech - not just software, but datacenters/hosting, application management, upgrades, consumer centric aestehtics and other technology services, traditionally fragmented across multiple vendors, have been brought together into a single contract and service level. Author Vinnie Mirchandani will draw from many case studies from the book including salesforce.com, financialforce.com, appirio and amazon web services to show how this new model is reshaping enterprise computing.
