This year was the second year where I “felt” that there were less Documentum sessions than the older traditional Momentum conferences. This is strange as there are more components to Content Management and Archiving, Documentum, than there were even two years ago. Luckily, I have the conference handbooks for the last three EMC World conferences and I can check numbers while I watch a new repository build.
The EMC World 2007 conference, while under EMC World’s wing, still felt like the session count wasn’t that far off. I remember a few grumblings, but nothing documented, so I’ll just use that as a baseline with the understanding that the previous year was at least as good. I believe 2007 was the year that the long-standing pre-conference tutorials vanished, so calling it even is a throwing EMC a bone.
