Agree with the posts regarding time. I wish I could attend more sessions! The reporting sessions are so valuable, and just not enough time to see everything. Such a great conference - wish it lasted 2 weeks!
I have two suggestions.
First, I would love to see more classes surrounding communications to end users. I have found the yearly communication class to be very beneficial. I do have to say, I did not care for the style this year (I felt it was not near as interactive). I prefer the style of the class the two previous years. I enjoy gaining insight as to what other organizations are doing to communicate to their end users.
Second, I would really like to see a best practice session according to organization size. We are a large corporation with thousands of users. We would love to be able to connect with fellow Fusion attendees that have a similar usage rate.
Thanks for asking!
I'd like to see a networking opportunity that is industry-specific...all the healthcare clients, all the insurance clients, the non-profit clients, etc. A chance to meet other clients who more closely align with my company and ask specific questions, share best practices, etc. that we may have in common.
Definitely agree. Also, extend the duration of the roundtables - one hour was not enough time for us to have a meangiful discussion, and often it felt like we were ending right as we got into a good topic.
I too would like to see more round table discussions of best practices but seated with other companies of liked size (size does matter).
I think all the classes should be longer. An hour is not enough time. The last Fusion I went to there was never time for questions and everything felt rushed.
Definately more hands on reporting classes. One thing that could be cool is to ask clients to submit their "Report needed requests" before Fusion. Concur would pick the ones that were most popular and they could do a couple classes where the whole class is making one of those reports.
I really like this idea. I really need to learn more about joins, bursting, and charts. But, the short reporting sessions aren't in-depth enough for me. Hands-on specific classes woudl be awesome!
