Longview Solutions, a leading provider of corporate performance management (CPM) and tax reporting software, hosted its 17th annual global customer conference, Dialog, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California from May 16 to 19, 2011. Selling out for a second year in a row, Dialog 2011 surpassed all prior years’ records, from the number of attendees, customers, and conference sponsors to overall conference satisfaction rating. Dialog 2011 played host to attendees that included customers, prospects, partners, industry analysts, as well as key personnel from Longview.
The theme of the conference was Community and it was interwoven throughout the event – from the keynote presentations, hands-on learning labs, product sessions, and customer-led breakout sessions to all of the interactive networking events. “Dialog was an excellent opportunity to network with companies with similar challenges and to hear how they applied Longview CPM to those challenges,” said Virgil Colby, Director of Corporate Finance for Celestica. “I built partnerships with many people on the Longview team that can be leveraged in building our solution portfolio with Longview. Simply put, Dialog was content rich, productive and enjoyable."
“We are excited to see Dialog continue to grow and transform year after year,” commented John Power, President of Longview Solutions. “Our main objective of Dialog is to create a unique environment that fosters interaction, discussion, and “dialogue” based on common challenges, opportunities and idea, and I believe we exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
Official Sponsors and Strategic Partners
As part of Dialog, many of Longview’s strategic partners and service providers were showcased throughout the conference through official sponsorship, the delivery of breakout sessions, and participation in the expanded Solutions Center. Partner participation included technology partners MicroStrategy and Trintech, implementation service providers Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Accenture, respected industry analyst firm BPM Partners, and the ACT Association.
Planning for Dialog 2012
Using the momentum and positive feedback from this year’s conference, plans are already underway for Dialog 2012 where attendees will again have the opportunity to meet, share ideas, learn, and collaborate. Full program details including location, speakers, and events will be announced in the coming months.
