2008 Business Objects Partner Summit

Thoughts from the 2008 BusinessObjects Partner Summit

I’ve arrived at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, site of the Business Objects Partner Summit 2008. This is the first Partner Summit held in conjunction with the Business Objects Sales Kickoff, so it will be an opportunity to network extensively with the Business Objects sales force.

Today was the first day of the conference. Unfortunately, the juicy product stuff is under NDA. But I attended a great presentation called How To Give Compelling Demos by Peter Cohan. You can order his book, Great Demo!: How To Create And Execute Stunning Software Demonstrations, from Amazon.com.

During one of the general sessions, Bernard Liautaud (Business Objects founder and chief strategy officer) spoke live via satellite phone with Pete Collette, a sales consultant for Business Objects in Australia. Pete is rowing the Atlantic solo – a pretty awesome feat. You can read more at Atlantic Solo Challenge.
