Performance: One key theme for IOD EMEA from Optim

Hi, everyone. It seems as if lately I am always on the road. Today, I am actually back here at SVL, where, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, it is raining, and raining hard. Tomorrow I head off to the UK for regional user group meetings. I also have Rome to look forward to, and that’s why I’m writing today, to give you the highlights at IOD EMEA for products in my portfolio.
When I look at the sessions, one major theme I see is around performance. Regardless of how ‘cool’ new applications and new technologies are, the issue of performance never goes away and often becomes even more critical as users become even more intolerant of slow response times or unavailability. So, although performance may not have the “coolness” factor of some topics, it’s bread and butter for most of our customers. The key is to make performance management more streamlined, less costly people-wise, and more focused on prevention rather than constant reaction.
If you’re going to IOD EMEA, I invite you to make a point of joining us at the following sessions to learn more about what we’re doing to help realize those goals. The sessions here are listed in chronological order, but you will of course need to check for changes at the conference venue itself. Some of the speakers may change as well. I look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t signed up for an executive one on one with me through your IBM sales rep and are interested in doing so, here is a link to where you can find more information on how to do that.
