Solver Global came together at one location last week to host its annual Focus customer and partner conference at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines hotel in sunny San Diego, California. Solver kicked off the conference with two-day intensive training classes designed for beginning and advanced users. There were valuable information-sharing sessions that attendees came to expect with additional learning and networking opportunities, including a dynamic keynote speaker. Continue reading
Solver and its global family of international companies came together last week to host their annual partner and user conference, BI360 Focus 2015, in beautiful Marina del Rey, California. As expected, it built on last year’s momentum delivering higher attendance, more learning sessions and educational tracks available for participants – and even a Ted Talk speaker presenting the second keynote address of the event.
This was my second time participating in Solver’s big user conference, BI360 Focus, hosted in sunny southern California, and it simply got better. Networking happened organically through thoughtful discussions, panel presentations, Q&A sessions, a welcome reception, a game of volleyball, or Amazing Race teamwork, amongst other opportunities. Customers and partners alike registered in record numbers, selling out the conference. And while Partner Day was added last year, the Solver team expanded the day to include a track of consulting/technical implementation and independent software vendor (ISV) sponsor sessions, detailing integrations and best-of-breed solutions with BI360. The Welcome Reception, held in the courtyard of the Marriott, offered a tasting event of California trends in food and beverages that brought customers and partners together before the customer conference even began.
As a first time participant in Solver’s annual user conference, Focus, held in Marina del Rey, California, I am pleased to report that it was a huge success. Partners and customers alike turned out in record numbers to sell out the conference. Focus 2014 was truly bigger and better than last year in another way: the Solver team added a whole day of sessions dedicated to partner enablement to discuss sales, marketing, and the roadmap for the future of BI360. My favorite part of the experience was the sense of community built through the networking nature of the conference. Partners and customers were able to connect and put faces to names and e-mail addresses, with each other as well as with the Solver team.
