We encourage you to attend the IDW and IDX User Groups at the IDEA E-Biz Forum 2009. These new sessions will provide hands-on training and the opportunity for you to share ideas with our IDW and IDX experts. Topics covered in these user groups will be determined by your feedback – please submit topic suggestions to the IDW and IDX training contacts listed below.

IDX User Group – Tom Guzik, IDEA

Wednesday, September 23: 1:00 PM – 1:50 PM

This session will provide a platform for connecting with other Industry Data Exchange (IDX) users. The IDX User Group is formed to cultivate relationships, share experiences and exchange ideas regarding electronic commerce within the IDX. Attendees will experience hands-on training on the IDX Tracker application as well as discuss challenges, solutions, tools and resources. Specifically, users will discuss how to most effectively use IDX to accelerate commercial velocity, enabling your business to do more and react faster. The session will focus on how you can leverage IDX to drive more revenue and reduce costs. IDX users and attendees interested in implementing an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solution should attend.

Please submit the topics you would like covered in the IDX User Group to Priya Reddy.

IDW User Group – Josh Given, IDEA

Wednesday, September 23: 2:05 PM – 2:55 PM

This session will provide an overview of new Industry Data Warehouse (IDW) features and on-going projects that will enhance the solution for future use. Users will share their experiences and gain insight from others on ways to effectively use the Data Synchronization Platform (DSP) to drive costs out of their business processes. This is also your opportunity to share your ideas about new services or helpful features to include in IDW. Please attend to help us continue to improve and shape IDW into the tool that meets your business needs.

Please submit the topics you would like covered in the IDW User Group to Josh Given.
