Memories of Summit 2007

For the past week, my wife and president of Armstrong-Smith Consulting, Darlene, and I, along with 3 other members of our highly experiended team, Dale Jones, Byron Smith and Stephanie Smith, have been in Las Vegas attending the SunGard Summit 2007 (link) conference. At the conference we had a 10 x 10 booth and discussed our Oracle Discoverer training and consultancy offerings with hundreds of attendees. All in all we had over 500 people attend our booth. During the conference we also gave away an iPod and 4 copies of our Oracle Discoverer 10g Handbook (link).

On Tuesday between 11:30 am and 12:30pm in the South Seas ballroom of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center (link) I presented a paper called A look at the powerful features of Discoverer 10g. This was well received and I am so pleased that so many people came to see me. During the conference I was also able to put a face to many of the SunGard staff whom we have been conversing with during recent months. Don't you think the world is just full of charming people?

For those of you who don't know, SunGard Higher Education (link) provides software, systems implementation and integration, strategic consulting, and technology management services to colleges and universities. Here at Armstrong-Smith Consulting we are delighted to have partnered with SunGard and to be a part of the SunGard Higher Education Collaborative (link).
