EVENT REPORT: Have you been wondered just how we are going to implement M4IS2* and add to it Real-Time-Processing (RTP) and Near-Real-Time Processing (NRTP)?  This event introduced to the Washington, D.C. environment, for the first time, the concept of operations and related technologies that will allow Google and Microsoft to play well together within any existing desktop analytic environment that relies on Microsoft for the operating system and functionalities, but needs to or wants to rely on Google for everything else.  This was the first of a quarterly series of briefings organized and moderated by Stephen E. Arnold, the behind-the-scenes architect of FirstGov (now Gov.USA), and author of the three definitive analytic studies of Google as well as multiple studies of Microsoft.
