By Wayne Lashley, Chief Business Development Officer for Treehouse Software
In 2014, I attended Software AG’s inaugural “TechEd” conference, held in Chicago in April. This was a free event, modeled loosely on the annual European “Software AG International User Groups”, offering customers the opportunity to attend presentations and get information that would otherwise be left to regional user group meetings—which have been largely discontinued—and/or to Innovation World. Several dozen Adabas/Natural customers attended last year, and their reviews were positive.
This year, TechEd returns to Chicago on April 21-22, 2015. I and others from Treehouse will be attending, and I will be presenting “Treehouse Software: Maximize and Revitalize Adabas/Natural”, about how our real-world customers are implementing strategies to integrate, modernize and extend mission-critical Adabas/Natural applications by leveraging Treehouse products and services.
While the conference will include not just an Adabas/Natural track but also tracks for webMethods, Terracotta, ARIS and Alfabet, there will be two full days of Adabas/Natural-related content. Topics include Adabas/Natural futures, zIIP Enabler for Natural, Web/mobile enablement, modernization/integration, Adabas SQL Gateway and Event Analytics for Adabas/Natural/EntireX, in a mix of Software AG and customer presentations. And in the evening of April 21, Software AG will host a customer celebration social event.
For the last half-day of the conference, Becky Albin will be giving her Adabas v8.3 Master Class. This is something that you would normally expect to have to pay for, but in this case it will be included at no charge. Something not to be missed!
I strongly encourage all Adabas/Natural customers to sign up for the *FREE* TechEd 2015 at https://info.softwareag.com/teched2015.html. See you in Chicago!
