The EMEA edition of the TeamQuest Technology Summit began today in London with a challenge made by TeamQuest’s Managing Director of EMEA Operations, Jason King. Jason advised attendees to take a moment and make note of the most crucial problems they face while working to optimize IT services and manage capacity for their organizations; TTS offers a unique venue for learning the solutions for those problems.
At TTS attendees have easy access to TeamQuest expertise as well as the expertise of other attendees. That expertise can be tapped via personal networking during meals and breaks, by taking in demonstrations in the demo room, or from listening and watching presentations. Jason suggested that attendees make it a goal to learn the solutions to their biggest challenges within the 36-hour time window of TTS. I’ll call it a kind of race to get the best possible ROA (Return on Attendance).
TeamQuest’s CEO and President, Jerred Ruble, followed Jason with a presentation titled, “2012: A Year of Transformation.” TeamQuest is always transforming, but with 2012 the pace is quickening. As one analyst noted, TeamQuest is now the last un-biased independent capacity management vendor standing. But Jerred is not satisfied with that accomplishment. He described the company’s plans for maintaining an aggressive pace for rolling out new products and services in a stepped-up effort to meet the changing capacity management needs of enterprise IT.
