Last week, Budapest, Hungary played host to a remarkable customer event, to which I was invited to speak on a host of topics including Support Best Practices, Proactive Support, Platinum Services and more. The Hotel Novotel Budapest Centrum was a fabulous location and served the needs of over 80 customers and employees in attendance.
The event agenda included a welcome by Irek Hytros, Oracle Sr. Director of Customer Management. Afterwards, Country Support Leader and Customer Service Manager, Izabella Gruhala delivered an interview (pictured right) with one of Hungary's first Platinum Services Customers, Tamas Benyi from ORFK (Hungarian Police Department). Tamas provided the audience with the deliverables, benefits and successes of being a Platinum Services Customer.
Thank You Tamas!
Additionally, there were sessions from Laszlo Kiraly (right) from Oracle Consulting Services and Istvan Gere (left) from Oracle University. Both provided fantastic information from both lines of business and really communicated the benefits provided by Oracle.
Sessions were conducted by myself on the Value of Oracle Support, a walk-through of My Oracle Support Best Practices, Proactive Support, Platinum Services and the Exadata Support model. Thanks for all the wonderful questions and audience participation. You helped to make this foreigner feel most welcome.
Overall it was a fantastic event attended by many, that without their participation would not have made it such a tremendous success. I had a privilege of speaking to several of our customers one-on-one. I met with Tamas Izsak from Oracle Partner AppWorks and representing the Hungarian Oracle Users Group, and also Laszlo Zoo, Oracle DBA/Developer from Invitel.
Thank you all for your loyalty and business. We appreciate our customers.
