HITEC in Recap: Big Event, Big Takeaways
July 11, 2011
Infor-SoftBrands was proud to sponsor HITEC again this year. HITEC is not only the biggest hotel technology event of the year, but also the biggest networking event. Did you attend?
To keep the forum content fresh, we offered educational sessions covering hot topics in the hospitality industry today. Some sessions you just had to see and hear in person. But if you missed ours, here’s a recap:
- The Cloud Computing Panel—Javier Buzzalino discussed some relevant topics such as the benefits of multi-tiered architectures, the impact of multi-tenancy on scalability, and the impact that the NoSQL movement has for the cloud. The Q&A format with real-world examples seemed to resonate with the entire audience. I’m proud to share Glenn Gruber’s comment in his Tnooz article “…you couldn’t help but leave the presentation feeling impressed by the technical leadership of the Infor team and confident that they’re providing a true enterprise-class solution.”
- “Doing Business Your Way—For Profit”—David Purcell held an education session on why it’s important to remember that no matter what benefits technology can prove, we all need to be doing things that make more money. The session highlighted some new strategies for doing that and refreshed us on what we already know.
Each time I attend HITEC, I’m reminded that it is such a perfect gathering to see old friends, catch up on what’s new, and build new relationships. I was so busy and talked to so many people that I nearly lost my voice—a small price to pay.
