Inforum 2008 : Connecting to the Future
Aug '08
Infor Chairman and CEO Jim Schaper will present insights into the future of business software during Connecting to the Future, his keynote at Inforum 2008, Infor's annual customer conference.

On Wednesday, Oct. 15, Schaper will discuss the impact of major business trends in the software industry, including globalization, mobility and collaboration, and how the use of business software will evolve.

Subsequent speakers will elaborate on Infor's specific development plans and provide a glimpse “under the hood” of the innovations users can expect from Infor.

Inforum, to be held Oct. 14 – 16 at The Venetian-Palazzo Hotels and Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, is the largest annual gathering of Infor customers, partners and experts who want to connect, learn and maximize the value of their Infor solutions.

More than 700 educational sessions across 14 Inforum Connections product tracks and product-specific networking opportunities will be offered, connecting attendees with others in similar business environments.

New this year, computer-based product training provides attendees with a hands-on learning experience coached by Infor product experts who will discuss the latest features, tips and tricks.

Additionally, the Solutions Expo, which includes more than 70 partner and live demonstration exhibits, will open the first evening of the conference.

“Inforum 2008 offers each customer an opportunity to attend educational sessions on the products they use to achieve greater visibility into their business,” said Rick Parker, senior vice president, marketing, Infor.

“This year's event provides more education and networking opportunities than ever, including computer-based training and Inforum Connections tracks.

These enhancements make it easy for attendees to identify highly-focused sessions and activities relevant to their product groups and specific areas of interest.”
