This update is provided by Josh Berger, Vice President of Sales for TopDown Consulting. Please check back tomorrow for the Day 2 update.
The biggest news from the Kscope11 kickoff is that Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) is the fastest growing application suite within Oracle apps. Data Relationship Management (DRM) is the fastest growing within EPM—showing 100% year-over-year growth.
During the welcome reception, a steady stream of people stopped by the TopDown Booth to say hello, check in on old friends who are part of the TopDown team, and relate their positive experiences a number of team members.
Visitors consistently complimented the team’s technical expertise as well as how easy TopDown is to work with.
Michael Smith, TopDown Solution Architect, blogger, speaker, and DRM expert held a number of conversations about developing financial data repositories throughout the evening.
A few Oracle product management folks stopped by and the discussion turned to acquisitions Oracle is contemplating. I can’t say what but I can say what they are considering fits into the close process and will dovetail nicely with TopDown’s experience working with some of our Fortune 100 clients.
Final takeaway for the day is Kscope11 is definitely a conference that offers great opportunities to listen and share about the current and future state of all things EPM with a wide group of attendees and partners.
The other key bit of news is the TopDown mints are a big hit. There’s going to be a lot of fresh breath in Long Beach, California this week.
