There was something for everyone at Summit 2016. CEO Gerry Cohen exclaimed the sessions were “just terrific” – the most tremendous content he’s seen delivered at a Summit.

It's hard to sum up Summit, but here’s a little fly-over of our week in Reno.

From big picture BI and analytics trends to the smallest detail like choosing the right chart type for an effective dashboard, Summit had it all. And the best place to experience it all was the buzzing Expert Center. A hive of activity throughout the conference, customers brought their questions and ideas to Information Builders’ product gurus. The came with a complex problem, an architectural conundrum, or some scenarios they wanted to talk through. They left with ideas and solutions that they could immediately put to use back at the office. People visited multiple times as new ideas and questions came to them, and to drill down on what they just heard in a session. The Technical Content group was busy showing off all the new resources they’ve put together to support users of WebFOCUS. And the new WebFOCUS BUE lounge was a hit for the customers that couldn’t wait to get back to the office to take this exciting new product for a spin.
