As if there was any doubt, I will be attending EMC World 2008 this year in Las Vegas (May 18-22). It is the best place to corner the product managers to see what is coming down the pike. The sessions are mostly useful, but the highlight is getting to talk to other users and the EMC staff. I strongly recommend attending if you have a Documentum installation.
Watch for the Word
I plan on blogging during/after every session that I attend. While I can’t share many of my offline conversations, some of what I hear is not for public dissemination, I will share everything from the presentations.
In addition, I’ll be checking all the Comments for questions that you would like to see answered. I’ll try and get the answers, though no promises. The sooner you ask a question, the higher the chances of my finding the person with the answer. If I get an answer and am told that I can’t share it with the public, I’ll at least let you know that I asked and see if I can get a timeline for a public announcement.
Questions of Pie
I have some basic topics already. I will share them with you now, but this list is growing as I start to plan my trip in greater detail. If I get enough participation from everyone, I may even start a separate page to track everything.
My starting questions are:
- Will the 6.5 Indexing engine work on a 6.0 repository?
- What is the plan for Identity Management in the Documentum world?
- Friendly DFS conversations with Craig Randall, preferably over a frosty beverage.
I have a lot of other things bubbling in the back of my head which I will get written down over the next month.
If you want to corner me at EMC World, I’ll be spending a fair amount of spare time around the Developer Network events. Once I get there and get my bearings, I’ll be posting here on the best way to contact me at the conference. I’ll pick some message board somewhere that I will promise to check.
I am looking forward to meeting as many new people as I can during the conference. See you there.
