There may not be many reasons to visit Moscow in late October, but the 3rd installment of the On Demand Russia Conference and Exposition turned out to be enough motivation for some.

Kodak GUA Day 1: The Importance of User Groups

 Apr 12, 2010

The annual Kodak GUA (Graphic Users Association) conference is taking place this week, April 11-14, in Vancouver, BC. I am lucky enough to be here in attendance as a media/journalist member and participant in one of the K-Zone sessions. I don’t often get the chance to come to user group meetings and interact with print service providers. Here are a few of my thoughts as the first day comes to a close.

The user group experience continues to be one of utmost importance to those in attendance. Talking with print service providers attending the event it is no surprise as to why they are here. Participants are given the opportunity to speak with like minded individuals at varying stages in technology implementations. They are able to gain valuable insight, discuss issues, and be reassured that the paths they are taking are those leading them in the right direction.

I just returned from a week in India as part of the HP InfoTrends conference on production digital printing and packaging series we have been doing throughout the Asia Pacific region. The 2-day conference was front-ending the IPEX South Asia tradeshow held in Mumbai, India.

Like the previous HP InfoTrends conferences held in Singapore and Beijing, this event attracted a large audience of print service providers, marketing services providers, distributors, and HP partners. There were over 200 attendees and 20 speakers covering 10 sessions.

What If People Actually Showed Up? A Report from ON DEMAND 2009

Jim Hamilton
 Apr 3, 2009

ON DEMAND 2009 opened among concerns about the economy and how that would impact the turnout. Some predicted truly anemic attendance. Though no attendance figures are available yet to verify this, my observation is that attendance on the ON DEMAND show floor and at the conference was quite good. In speaking with many exhibitors over the past three days, the general reaction is that booth traffic was better than they had expected and that the show was providing good leads. Some of this can be attributed to this year’s move to Philadelphia from Boston, which makes it easier for attendees from Washington and New York to attend. Read more »

“In 2 years, we won’t have laptops anymore”

Thus spoke Open Text CEO John Shackleton at the opening keynote for Open Text’s 2008 user conference, aptly named Content World. Those of you working with Open Text are likely more familiar with the “LiveLinkUp” event of the past, which was renamed this year to promote the ‘one voice, one vision’ theme. In line with this shift, I’ve found that a few product lines are moving towards a single-brand identity, with the (former) Red Dot Web content management (WCM) solution being referred to more often as WCM for LiveLink.

So maybe Mr. Shackleton is a little off in his perceived timing for this next evolution of information technology, and more than likely, this was a rhetorical statement. Then again, for those who saw InfoTrends’ President Jeff Hayes’ keynote at ODS, we all know “the cloud” and “mobile” are coming. Read more »

ODS Follow-up: Continuing our SharePoint conversations…

 Nov 14, 2008

For those of you that attended our SharePoint keynote panel yesterday morning, I wanted to reach out and offer the opportunity to continue the conversation. Unfortunately, we ran a little bit over the allotted time and didn’t have the chance to address audience questions (nor several of my own). So that said, feel free to e-mail me directly, or post some questions/comments under this post. I’ll follow-up with our panel and post their responses here!

Based on what we heard during the keynote, it seems SharePoint could be a real disruptor for our markets and especially important as the convergence of hardware and software (and of workgroup and enterprise solutions) comes to fruition. The Microsoft ecosystem could be an ‘in’ for hardware manufacturers, workgroup ISVs, as well as enterprise ISVs to approach end-to-end solutions in a truly process-centric manner. Read more »

Of course, InfoTrends will also be presenting its most recent research and market analysis as well as answering any questions you may have. Those of you that will be local should definitely consider registering and coming by! For those that absolutely can’t make make it, don’t fret — I’ll be posting from the show daily, so keep your newsreaders locked on the InfoBlog.

Ricoh Vision 2008

The Ricoh Vision 2008 show was held last week at the Omni Championsgate Resort in Orlando, FL, and a few of us were in attendance. The theme of the show, “Leading the REVolution,” emphasized the Real Enhanced Value (get it?) that Ricoh and its dealers are poised to provide.

Ricoh executives were on-hand to speak with dealers and analysts, provide insight into the current state and future of the organization, as well as (broadly) comment on possible implications and scenarios following the IKON deal. We were also privy to a full analyst briefing, tech expo, and dealer seminars on environmental sustainability, production print, and REV solutions. (Clients – watch for our full analysis next week!)

For me, the highlight of the event was a toss up between guest speaker Pat Riley, Chris Bliss’s amazing juggling to The Beatles, and Kirk Yoshida’s “I’m Back” general session.  I guess the Florida weather in October wasn’t too bad either.od.

PS Did you know Ricoh sponsors the sustainable development award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair?
