Solid Edge Summit Update

Solid Edge Summit

As I write this, we have some dueling Solid Edge Summits going on in Alabama and Toronto.  The top leaders for the Solid Edge organization have been traveling north America teaming up with some of the top technical Solid Edge users with the goal of helping customers boost their productivity.

Right now, I’m watching Bill McClure demo some of the new functionality coming in ST3 although he says most our time will be focused on what customers are using today.  Dan Staples and Karsten Newbury are in Toronto about our hour ahead. While Bill and Dan talk, Karsten and I are doing a bit of tweeting using the twitter hashtag #SESUMMIT.

We are about ½ through these Summits with attendance growing. We had over 200 people at the two summits in Canada the last couple days.  I think part of this is because word is getting out that this isn’t some marketing show but something meant to give those that attend an edge in design efficiency ( I almost said, “… a solid edge in design efficiency” but that might kill the point ).

If anyone is reading this that already attended, feel free to comment on usefulness. My saying it is valuable for your and your company is fine but I’m sure most people would like to hear from real customers. Or, log into the Solid Edge forums and see what people are saying there.

P.S. Next stops are:
