Inforum 2012 & the 'New Infor'

At Inforum 2012, which took place April 22-25, almost 5,000 attendees discovered how to succeed in a world that demands the survival of the fastest.  Some of the Infor10 ERP Express(VISUAL)-related presentations were delivered by BizTech’s own Kurt Carr andDarren Farmer.  Their sessions included: VISUAL Systems Administration, Technology Environment Roundtable, Re-Implementing VISUAL-Data Considerations, Maximize the Return on Your ERP Investment, SharePoint Starter Kit, and Shop Floor Scheduling. 

Downtown Denver is an excellent destination for an event like Inforum 2012, the weather was great and the convention center had all the amenities necessary to satisfy the large crowd. The Welcome Reception and Networking Event was held Sunday evening in the Exhibit Hall giving the attendees an opportunity to see Infor’s vast line of Software Products in action. During the Opening General Session on Monday morning, Infor CEO Charles Phillips was able to clearly articulate Infor’s Strategic Vision, leaving no doubt that Infor10 ION is at the core of helping drive the transformation for customers.

“I was very impressed with Inforum 2012, it was a first class event,” said Joe Zalewski, Managing Partner and COO at BizTech. “Hats off to Danna Nelson and Infor’s VISUAL Team for delivering a great VISUAL Conference track. Our customers that attended got a lot of value from the conference. I’m proud that the BizTech Team was able to contribute to the success of the event.”

For most attendees, the clear value was in the various product sessions held throughout the duration of the event. Most would agree that the pinnacle of Inforum 2012 was Tuesday evening’s InForce Party and the concert featuring 3-Time Grammy Award-Winning artist, Train.

Make sure you Save the Dates for next year.  Inforum 2013 will be taking place in Orlando, FL on April 21st through 24th.
