Ken: I understand you had some sessions here at this conference, can you tell us a little bit about what you presented?
Michael: Sure. I’m excited to have some sessions here, several—four of them, actually; reducing complexity through technical operations and implementations, introduction to the HANA world, what to experience when thinking cloud hosting and HANA, so, yeah, some great opportunities for us.
Ken: And your guys are also exhibitors here, what are you hearing from prospects, what are people asking about?
Michael: Yeah, there’s great buzz and energy in the show, I think the technology wave, constant messaging around HANA and the adoption of HANA, we’ve been hearing it for a year or two now and it seems to be taking off with great energy so a lot of conversations very technically around there, as well as the BI components to the show, customers really looking to engage in software more, you know again, driving value and return for their organizations.
Ken: All right, great, well Michael, thanks for stopping by to chat.
Michael: Thanks for having me.
