John Todd has posted an interesting link about a speech that will take place in which Jeremy Wadhams from Yahoo will discuss an Asterisk implementation in a Fortune 500 company.
I don’t know how many of you are going to be at ITEXPO/Digium Asterisk World in Miami next week – I hope to see as many of you as possible, though.
There has been an interesting change in the line-up for the show, that I think bears mentioning here since it possibly will help quite a few of you in your discussions about getting Asterisk into your company. We’ve had the good fortune to have a last-minute keynote addition at the show, which is going to be Jeremy Wadhams from Yahoo. He’s going to be talking about a Fortune 500 implementation of Asterisk across their entire network, and why they made the decision to move to Open-Source telephony for the core of their voice network.
Keynote: 3:30 – 4:00 PM on Wednesday – Jeremy Wadhams, Yahoo
It’s not yet on the ITEXPO site, since we only confirmed this yesterday with Jeremy, who is really being a great sport for doing this on short notice.
Having Yahoo giving a keynote on their multi-thousand seat installation is great news for the Asterisk community in general, and is great news specifically for other Enterprise managers who have been looking for that all-important set of examples of public users of a technology. (Enterprise tends to move in herds.) There are large numbers of Enterprise users of Asterisk, but it’s always great to get a “name-brand” company who can be offered as a proponent of Asterisk.
Again, hope to see all of you there in Miami next week!
This will be interesting!!! Stay tuned
