Catching Up with UPK – an update on events and what’s coming in the UPK World!
By Beth Renstrom on Oct 18, 2011
Oracle Open World
Open World was a smashing success! This year we had our first ever UPK Track containing over 14 sessions, demo pods, and hands on labs in addition to the multiple customer and partner meetings. It was great to see familiar faces and meet new UPK users. The interest level around UPK was phenomenal; our demo pod booth traffic was non-stop with over 300 people stopping by over a 3-day period. We touched over 1,300 people in the UPK specific sessions and hundreds more that heard about UPK from many of the other product sessions that mentioned the value of UPK! Thank you to all the attendees and especially to the customers and partners that presented, Phil Wilkinson from Liverpool John Moores University, Nicole Moore from Extendicare, and Carol Griffeth from AZZ Inc. Partner sessions included great presentations from Synaptis and Intelligo. There was information shared from everyone, including Product Management and Development, and not one but two special interest groups (SIG) meetings, one for OAUG and a new SIG for Quest.
The UPK Applications demo pods had an iPad giveaway and the lucky winner was Lyla Welday from Smuckers! We were able to track down Lyla at Open World and deliver the iPad in person!
