Gitex KSA is the 9th International Information Technology Exhibition being held in the KSA from the 25th to the 29th of April 2010. During this time, the exhibition will be home to more than 450 exhibitors as well as over 100,000 visitors from all over the KSA and the world. Cleartag/Taglogic, the only Lebanese company participating in the exhibition, will use this opportunity to strengthen its foothold both regionally and internationally.
Cleartag will showcase its latest new media and digital solutions at the Riyadh Exhibition Center. Using a combination of RFID technology, multi-touch technology, and motion detection systems, along with its own customized software interfaces, the Cleartag booth is guaranteed to attract major attention at the show. Cleartag is working on some very unique tools that will enable visitors to physically interact with the booth, thereby making the Cleartag “experience” both memorable and unique.
One of the growing Web 2.0 trends is the use of the internet as a collaboration tool and not just as a source of information. To account for this trend, software is now being offered as a service (SaaS).
One example of this is Google Docs. Google Docs is a simple, yet effective tool, that improves work flow tremendously. For many, sending emails or documents over Google Docs is preferable to traditional email because:
• Google Docs can be access it from anywhere: It is hosted online, so it can be edited from anywhere, anytime.
• Google Docs allows the user to share changes in real time
• Google Docs enables you to give access to anyone, allowing them to edit and check the updates, instead of emailing the file every time it is changed.
