In the morning, Jill Osborne from Dynix gave a very impressive demonstration of the new HIP 4 administrator interface.
One of the biggest problems I found with HIP 3 (and below) was doing the admin configuration – the options were here, there and everywhere. HIP 4 brings everything together into a single (fairly) intuitive interface. If this is a taster of things to come with Horizon 8.0, then the wait will be well worth it.
There’s some more notes from Jill’s presentation here.
The afternoon saw a very honest keynote speech from Peter Gethin. Peter’s style might not be to everyone’s taste, but it marks the start of what should be an interesting few years for SirsiDynix.
If anyone is looking for the “Systems Managers Forum” presentations from Tim Fletcher and myself, then you can find them here.
