This week I spent a few days attending the Hochschul-Informations-System GmbH (HIS) user conference in Oberhof, in the German state of Thüringen.
This is not the usual open source or technology conference but it is an event centered around the end users of HISinOne, HIS impressive campus management system for German universities. For the past 18 months, Openbravo and HIS have been working closely to embed Openbravo as the financial management solution for HISinOne and the combined solution was presented at this event in front of nearly 400 IT staff and the administration users coming from most universities in the country.
At this conference, not only I had a precious opportunity to interact in person with many perspective end users of the system but I was also offered a speaking slot and had a chance to introduce Openbravo.
The slides of my presentation are available online. Make sure to read the English transcript of my speech available as speaker notes.
