The Impact of Social Media

We have spoken with several hedge fund CTOs and IT managers who have expressed interest in learning more about the various social media outlets and how they can be used to accelerate the growth of the firm. Additionally, top industry vendors are starting to incorporate social media into their products, such as the Microsoft Office Social Media Connector.
