After resting up from an intense and content-packed first day of the User Conference, attendees (the highest number we’ve had so far, by the way!) were ready for more, and this time they had their choice of three separate session tracks: In addition to sessions on both the technical and solutions-oriented sides of EcoSys EPC, partners Accenture and Pinnacle Management Systems both offered presentations related to their expertise. Pinnacle spoke first about approaches to yield the greatest returns from investments in EcoSys EPC, including a wave-based approach that generates quick wins and internal support. Accenture then provided insights into the Energy sector and particularly, what activities should be pursued during down economic times that can position a company more strongly when the economy rebounds. EcoSys-presented sessions covered such topics as optimizing system performance, EcoSys EPC analytics, cloud-based solutions, and integration, just to name a few.
The conference culminated in a panel discussion that included members from American Electrical Power, Bechtel, Gulf Interstate Engineering, Haskell, San Francisco MTA, SunTrust, and Quanta Services. They discussed topics including techniques to promote user adoption, making the business case for a commercial project controls solution, unanticipated benefits of an EcoSys EPC implementation, and opportunities for leveraging the upcoming mobile apps.
EcoSys CEO Javier Sloninsky concluded the conference with thanks to everyone who attended. And while many attendees needed to return to work right after the show, we’re glad that some had the opportunity to enjoy the very hospitable environment at the Four Seasons and visit the numerous attractions in the greater Orlando area.
Officially, EcoSys will be sending out a survey to all attendees to get their impressions of the event. Unofficially, we’ve already received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees, ranging from the quality of the accommodations and receptions to the detailed content of the presentations and extraordinary networking opportunities.
If you were there, please accept our warmest thanks for attending. If you weren’t, we hope this encourages you to attend next year.
