Gartner Symposium in Cape Town

Gartner Symposium in Cape Town
I was fortunate enough to attend a few of the Gartner sessions this week. For those who don't know, in it's simplest form, Gartner is a group of IT research analysts who try to predict future of IT and provide advice to IT professionals.

I was rather surprised at the large turnout that the event had. The tickets weren't cheap (though not unreasonable) and yet the various rooms (each hosting different topic tracks) were pretty full every time (as was the lunch hall at 13h00).

It would seem as though Cape Town's IT industry is booming. If anybody knows, I'd be interested to find out whether or not ticket sales for this event have increased over the last couple of years.

Thanks Daryl Plummer and Frank Kenney for the comedic, yet well thought out and informative talks you gave on SOA and BPM. We'll remember to watch out for the Black Mamba. ;)
