Record attendance at EC User Forum 2012

140 customers and partners from over 20 countries attended the User Forum in Stavanger at the end of April.

Participants travelled from all over the world to our User Forum, and feedback indicates that they returned with new insight, “food for thought” and contacts. Great suggestions for other such events were also provided. We very much welcome your input and believe it is essential to ensure we keep providing what is useful to you.

Customers on stage

Record attendance at EC User ForumLeading up to the event we strive to put together a program which is relevant to a broad customer base, combining presentations of customer experiences and Energy Components product updates. This year BP, Gassco, OMV and Repsol presented ambitious EC implementation projects.

The immediate questions from the audience that followed these presentations illustrate the relevance of sharing experiences and know-how between the EC user groups.

The great networking opportunity is one of the reasons why our customers take time out of a hectic work schedule to join our User Forum. The conversation between participants during the coffee breaks, lunches and evening events are perceived as very valuable.

Going for EC 10.4

Tieto develops the EC product on a continuous basis. The User Forum is therefore a great occasion to showcase new versions. New tools and applications improved or introduced in EC10.3, launched in March this year, were presented. We also provided some “work in progress” for 10.4. This year we also dedicated significant time to EC’s Planning & Optimization initiative, both in presentations and “Deep Dive” sessions”.

I would like to use the opportunity to extend my gratitude to those who attended and made the User Forum yet another great event, and to encourage even more customers to join us next time.
