With innovation in IT moving so rapidly it is easy to understand why shows like CeBIT keep attracting so many people. Helping thought leaders glimpse into the future and make informed decisions about the future of technology is why so many IT leaders attend these events.
CeBIT was held at Sydney Olympic Park for the first time this year. OneConfig was among the vast array of startup businesses at this year’s event, which saw startup stands being positioned alongside more established, larger exhibitors. This reflects the vast growth in new and innovative businesses and they were the primary focus of many of the attendees.
Cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) were well represented, and OneConfig is part of this growing IT trend. We enjoyed visits to our stand from many attendees over the three days and we were really pleased with the enthusiastic response we received.
OneConfig was visited by:
The Head of Networking for a very large defence contractor business looking for ways to simplify the management of a vast private Juniper network;
The CIO of a well known Australian retailer interested in improved management for 300+ retail branches using Juniper SRX/EX devices;
Several Business Development Executives from Juniper Resellers looking for ways to add to and improve the Juniper ecosystem;
An Internet Service Provider entrepreneur looking for help to manage a growing fleet of gateways servicing a public wi-fi network;
Product and Solution Managers for a few of Australia’s largest Service Providers looking for ways to innovate and reduce costs;
A prominent Australian technology Journalist looking for exciting new projects to write about; and,
Numerous Consultants and IT Contractors keeping up with emerging industry trends.
What was also enjoyable for the OneConfig team was meeting and talking to other entrepreneurs. There were so many passionate and interesting new business owners there and it was fascinating talking to them and hearing about their product and journey.
