On September 26, Open-Xchange held its 5th renowned summit aboard the Cap San Diego, a huge cargo ship in Hamburg - Europe's gateway to the world.
This unexpected location was the backdrop for an event that connected senior business leaders and industry experts from across the Cloud and SaaS marketplaces.
The highlights of this event included:
Phil Zimmermann - Guest keynote. Phil outlined new and sometimes controversial views on personal privacy, the relevance of international security agency collecting data and how companies and countries should change their attitudes to privacy.
Rafael Laguna – Keynote. Rafael was both entertaining and provocative. He started with the famous Apple 1984 video and concluded on his four commandments of trusted cloud services that resonated well with everyone in the room.
OXS13 Exhibition Area - This proved to be a huge success. This was a whole floor of the ship where twenty summit sponsors setup extraordinary display and demonstrations areas. All our sponsors said this was a wonderful way to meet interesting customers and future partners: A huge bonus of being a sponsor.
ISV Ecosystem Showcase - This session spotlighted three companies that have produced outstanding innovations when it comes to the future of the cloud ecosystem and integration with OX App Suite: Voiceworks, LiteElements and Digitec.
Biz/Tech-Xchange Sessions - This was a chance for delegates to choose to hear more about what interested them most. Three parallel tracks running for two and a half hours of sessions lasting no longer than 20mins each gave delegates a wide choice of topics ranging from hardware innovation to the future of Open-Xchange development.
Crossfire Session – This brought some of the top speakers back on stage to form a high-powered panel. Topics were far ranging and there were some excellent insights and discussion: A very interesting and dynamic session that was highly rated by all those who attended.
The CEO Couch - Hosted by René Büst. These sessions have become a tradition at Open-Xchange Summits. Top CEO's are brought on stage and are confronted with a series of provocative questions designed to cut through the fluff and get directly to the meat of a number of topical themes.
Rock the Cap - Party time. This year featuring the talented "Kill It Kid". After an amazing set they were followed by top DJ: DJ Mashup Germany who kept the party going into the early hours of the morning.
