Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


Xero present at Tech Ed New Zealand 2007

, posted: 12-Aug-2007 21:23

Xero’s Chief Operating Office Alastair Grigg and Chief Technology Officer Craig Walker are hosting the 9am Wednesday ‘Voice of the Customer’ session during the Tech Ed New Zealand 2007. They will talk about Xero - "who we are and what we do" - and why the company has selected Microsoft as the provider of their core technology platform to get them to this point and beyond.

They will look at Xero from a business perspective as well as provide insights into Xero’s underlying technology.

Also at 1.40pm Tuesday Alastair Grigg will be part of a lunchtime debate ‘Software as a Service? Yeah, Right’ hosted by Fronde’s Jim Donovan. Alastair is on the team arguing for the opportunities that SaaS offers with Gavin Lennox from Healthphone; while arguing for the challenges that SaaS faces are Andrew Connor from Auckland University of Technology and Ron Jacobs from Microsoft.

There will be a team of about nine Xeroes at Tech Ed... They will be distinguishable in their black and blue Xero t-shirts. Stop them for a chat!
