The idea is that you will be introduced to new technology by means of some training and some hands-on walkthroughs. The walkthroughs are scripted, but they're on fully working instances and you can play around with them to your heart's content, with an expert handy in case you get stuck.
There are PoTs covering:
- advanced features (including a MACH11 taster)
- ER and MACH11
- performance tuning
Even though they are aimed at ISVs and BPs, end-users are welcome to come along if the PoT isn't fully booked. I therefore encourage you to get out there and get your local ISVs and BPs to arrange the delivery of one or more PoTs via your friendly local Tech Sales person.
I think you'll like the price, too! ;-)
