Many people at the lobby all moving towards the convention center. The opening session should start at 9:00.
stage is well-decorated and looks like a starship's command bridge (any
guys here who like star trek?). Audience is filled well, but only at
half (estimated capacity 3,000 people). Maybe a result of current
Opening starts 15 minutes later in a typical
American show style (hard for any European to understand this :-) ).
The starship seems to be launching now. Two hosts (Tony Rummans and Ivo
Koerner) are moderating the session. First speaker is Dr. Ambuj Goyal,
General Manager, IBM Information Management Software, IBM Software
Group. The event is very well organized, illumination is well designed
and dimmed properly, camera work on the speakers is excellent. Well
choosen location (also used for "Bamby" - a German TV price) and a
professional event team! After a few words from other VIPs a little bit
to long panel discussion the session was closed, also 15 minutes later.
The breakout sessions began afterwards, I've choosen "Informix roadmap"
and "smart SOA". Met my IBM sales representative during lunch time on a
coffee. After lunch I visited "Storage virtualisation" and a three our
hands-on-workshop on application consolidation. It was hard to
concentrate on fluently spoken English late afternoon, but very
At 6:00 p.m. welcome reception the choice was easy: Two beer. No question.
IOD2009 Speakers Lounge
First time at IOD. Arrived yesterday (2nd of June) noon. There was a public track for the German public administration. I had to give my presentation in German there. The public track was interesting too. Feedback was okay.
Evening I hang around in the hotel lobby. No program for customer speakers available. Speakers lounge was occupied by IBM sales staff. Two beer or not two beer, that was the question (for me) that evening. I decided to have two beers ;-)

I am so excited and I can't hide it!That's how I feel about my topic for this year's EMEA IOD presentation.
I will be presenting a live demo that will show you the compelling value of adopting an Information Agenda. The demonstration will utilize the software technologies of Cognos, InfoSphere and FileNet working together in an integrated fashion. To highlight the value of these technologies, the demonstration is based on a business context around Financial Services.
The demo will de-mystify Information Agenda and highlight what it means to move from Automation and Application centric view to Optimization and Information Centric view and more importantly, how to get there with the IBM technologies.
The entire demo is also showcased at the Smart Information Management Center for Banking in Barcelona, Spain.
So, come check it out. As they say ...
One Demo is worth a thousand power points.
I look forward to meeting you there!

Recall your college/university days when you lived on coffee, lacked sleep and were wondering why you are in a lab room at 11:59 pm. Then you awake for have a colleague tap you on the shoulder. You are greeted with a chuckle and later you find out “QWERTY” is imprinted on your forehead from your keyboard pillow. Ah the good ole days – or were they?
Despite these type of memories, the hands on labs are very popular at Information on Demand so you want to sign up early. In particular, I have been involved with the Hands on Lab at IOD 2008 which premiered the lab currently titled “Enterprise Mashups - Revolutionize How User Access Information and Maximize your SOA Re-Use”. On several occasions while proctoring the lab, I was pulled aside by students / practitioners and specifically told – “This lab is really fun. Thanks for putting it together”. In the lab you will find how you can accelerate the ROI on your Information on Demand and SOA investments.
If you are attending IOD EMEA, take some time to have fun and learn about Enterprise Mashups.
If you want to see the type of thing you will be doing check out the Customer Insight mashup demo. Hope to see you there!
