PBIT Meeting, Theme: Continuum RMM & NOC presentation, by Alan Crowetz - Infostream, Inc.

A really great presentation by Alan Crowetz of InfoStream, Inc.  Most of the Charts and Reports in the linked Photo Essay are slightly blurred to protect the innocent.  If you have curiosity or questions, Alan's contact info is in the Photo Essay also - he'd really like to talk to you.

Comments from PBIT Group Leader, John Vighetto, include:

I want to thank everyone for joining us for Alan’s presentation. I’m sure I can safely say that his presentation was great (because he literally talked for over an hour before showing anything regarding Continuum, no one talked, no one yawned, etc.)! And as far as having everyone stay until around 9:30, it’s safe to say that all were interested (or was it because he brought donuts?)

For anyone that was on the fence about this company (present company included), Alan convinced us to become believers. His presentation was not a cheerleading session, but rather an honest and up front opinion of how he personally uses, and likes, the product.

Thanks to Danielle for bringing a home-made rum cake (it was delicious!). Last but not least, thanks to Lynne for always hosting our meetings (for as long as she has been), and an extra thanks for staying later than normal in spite of the fact that you had to leave first thing this morning for a family graduation.

Next month we will have Storage Craft talk about their latest product releases of Shadow Protect. Hope to see you there. Have a great rest of the week!
