TIFCA’S Client-to-Cloud Portal and Ecosystem Report Released

The International Future Computing Association Welcomes New Members, Open Call For Speakers, and Introductory Membership Program

Mountain View, California (March 31, 2019) –The International Future Computing Association (TIFCA) is where the computing ecosystem collaborates on challenges that no single company can overcome on its own.  The industry is heading towards cloud-enhanced client devices like PC, console, mobile, and immersive technologies.  Early successes include cloud gaming, software as a service (SaaS), and 5G immersive streaming.  TIFCA wants to enhance and scale further through a collaborative client-cloud ecosystem and a create-once, reach-all ability for application and content developers alike.  This journey is called the Client-to-Cloud Revolution.
