I recently had the pleaseure of attending the Configuration Workgroup(CWG) annual North America conference.  I thought I would share my notes and thoughts on the conference.

CWG North America Conference October 2012, Marco Island, FL

Notes from Paul Barney attendee and presenter

My first CWG conference.  I presented as well as attended the sessions.  Very good conference overall.  Great attendance from customers, partners and SAP.

 

Presentation files are available on CWG document share at http://www.configuration-workgroup.com

 

Overall very nice mix of hands on, technical level, as well as overview presentations.  Plenty of options for deep technical people as well as newer people.

 

Personal highlights:

The keynote presentation on VC history from Albert Haag(SAP AG) one of founding fathers of VC, was very enjoyable.

 

I had a chance to connect with SAP VC influencers like Marin Uklavic, Steve Lenz, Harald Reitz(Vogel) from SAP, and Sascha Rauhe(Aicomp), Barry Walton, and Scott Perdue.

 

I attended an interestng session on Configit mobile solution.  Very powerful!

I was able to spend a large amount of time learning about Aicomps new mobile solution. 

 

I had many nice discussions with serveral of my Mill Products customers

Audience seemed very impressed with WCEM 3.0 new commerce platform.

Interesting IPC offline prototype for Android.

 

Themes:

Lots of discussion on the CD solution Solutions Sales Configurator(SSC).

Good performance tuning tips were provided.

IPC UI, delta list, and performance tuning discussions.

 

Overall, excellent conference.  I will be attending again.  If you are not a member of CWG, I highly encourage looking into it.
