Didn't get a chance to attend the ALM Summit, here are the online sessions...

For those of you that are practicing ALM and did not get a chance to attend the ALM Summit, here is a quick summary for the event and links to the online streamed sessions. 


Event Summary

This year was our first ALM Summit. The outbound marketing team worked with the engineering and product management teams with two main goals in mind:

1. Bring key customers, analysts and luminaries together over three days to align views on ALM.

2. Create a new wave of content for the field and our customers.

Targeting TDMs, the 3-day event included 21 sessions covering a wide range of topics. We attracted industry leaders as speakers to the event and brought key partners in the mix. We had great feedback with 98% of attendees indicating they would recommend the event to their peers in the future and a 165 NSAT score!

As a result we decided to further scale and re-run the ALM Summit in FY12. The plans for the next summit will be available in Q3.
