I am going to brush off my old marketing hat today to tell you about ILOG Dialog 08, our annual user conference. There's a great line-up of speakers, with Gartner's Daryl Plummer leading the BRMS track. The other tracks include Optimization, Visualization, Supply Chain and a general track. The session list includes talks by industry luminaries as well as real-world experience reports from ILOG customers. Dialog 08 is a great opportunity to hear from your industry peers, and to explore how BRMS, Optimization, Visualization or Supply Chain Management can help you "change the rules of your business".
Like you, I'm hoping I can convince my boss to give me a week away from the coal-face, and that I will see you in sunny Palm Springs, CA! :-)
