Dallas Goes to Dallas

I’m presenting at the 2008 BusinessObjects User Conference.

I received the following e-mail today. It began,

Dear Dallas:
Congratulations! We are delighted to invite you to present at the 2008 Business Objects Users Conference. Having received more than 275 submissions of quality content, our selection committee feels confident that sessions such as yours will make this our strongest conference program to date.


This year’s conference, at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas, will be my fourth in attendance and the third in a row for presenting. My topic this year will focus on the Central Management Console and security.

At my very first Business Objects conference (Insight 2005 at the Gaylord Palms resort in Orlando, Florida), I noticed all of the presentations from Integra Solutions. I said to myself, “that’s what I want to be when I grow up” and worked toward becoming a breakout speaker. It is going to be an awesome, yet humbling, experience to present this year wearing an Integra Solutions shirt.

This year’s conference will be the first conference without Business Objects steering the helm. But regardless of the changes, I know there are many volunteers working passionately to make the 2008 Business Objects User Conference a success.

I hope to see you there!
