The 451 Group is presenting its customer conference in Boston next week and I've been reading presentations and taking part in dry runs this week. I've also been editing my own presentation for the event. The content I've seen tells me that the event will be interesting and thought provoking. It is also rather time consuming to attend all of the dry runs and work to enhance analyst presentations.
I did have the opportunity to speak with the folks from Akorri as I mentioned in the post, Examining datacenter operations with Akorri BalancePoint. As I expected, the presentation was interesting. I was impressed by the depth of information this product makes available. I've asked to speak with one of their customers and will present a customer profile afterward.
