Curtis Franklin Jr.
On Tuesday and Wednesday (June 18 and June 19) Enterprise Efficiency will be bringing you the latest in disruptive technology from the E2 Conference in Boston. I'll be there covering all the speeches and news that promise to tell you how collaborative and social technologies can change business and bring your company a competitive advantage.

We'll begin on Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET with coverage of the opening keynote addresses. These speeches, talks, and discussions will last until noon and feature a who's who of collaborative technology, including:

  • Amit Singh, President of Enterprise, Google
  • James McQuivey, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research and author of Digital Disruption
  • Noorrudin (Rudy) S. KAarsan, Chairman and CEO, Kenexa
  • Bill Oates, CIO, City of Boston
  • Nikhil Govindraj, VP Products, Moxie Software
  • Martin Teat, Chief Privacy Officer, Vice President of Healthcare Computing and Principal Architect, Netsmart Technologies
  • Matt Tucker, Co-founder and CTO, Jive Software
  • Sameer Patel, Global Vice President and GM, Enterprise Social and Collaborative Software, SAP
  • Alistair Rennie, General Manager, Collaboration Solutions, IBM

After that, we all get to catch our breath (and I get to rest my fingers) before things pick up again on Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. ET with The Big-Data Hour. This session will be a round-table discussion featuring James Markarian, EVP and CTO, Informatica; Stefan Groschupf, CEO, Datameer; Matt Asay, VP of Corporate Strategy, 10gen; and John Bungert, IT Architect, Enterprise Infrastructure and Architecture, Global Technology and Operations, MetLife.

On Wednesday morning things pick up once again with the Second Day Keynote Speeches beginning at 9:30 a.m. ET. You won't want to miss coverage of speeches, discussions, and talks featuring:

  • Stan Swete, CTO, Workday
  • John McGeachie, VP of Sales Evernote Business, Evernote
  • Jason Maynard, Managing Direct and Software Analyst, Wells Fargo
  • Erika Jolly Brookes, VP of Product Strategy, Oracle Social Cloud, Oracle
  • SAanjay Dholakia, CMO, Marketo
  • Brian Halligan, CEO and Founder, HubSpot
  • Adam Pisoni, Co-Founder and GM of Engineering, Yammer

We'll break for lunch, informal discussions (and lots of social networking coverage on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+), followed by the final set of sessions for the conference. Beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET, we'll cover the Fireside Chats featuring Bill Schlough, CIO, San Francisco Giants; Jay Wessel, VP of Technology, Boston Celtics; Steve Conley, Director of IT, Boston Red Sox; and Michael Crowley, CEO, InfoMotion Sports Technologies.

It's going to be two full days of coverage and you won't want to miss a moment. Follow the event, and join the discussion as we look closely at the most disruptive technology for today's enterprise: social networking and online collaboration!

Re: Who's Who Panel
Thanks, Curt. Maybe an evening nap helps to keep me awake later. (I'm waking up at very early hours). Yes, it's quite interesting to be part of a global community. Also, what is great is that we can access the information of your coverage at any other time as well. :)

Re: Who's Who Panel
Thanks, @Marif! I'll be tweeting throughout the day, and I'll try to give some attention to our LinkedIn group, as well.

Be sure to follow both the Enterprise Efficiency twitter feed (@enterpriseeff) and my feed (@kg4gwa) to keep up with everything I'm seeing at the conference!

Re: Join Us at the E2 Conference
Thanks, @freespiritny -- I think there's going to be a lot on this topic, and I'll try to capture as much as I can in the live blog.

Speaking of which, it's about time for me to grab some breakfast before heading to the keynote room. It's almost time to get things started for the morning!

Re: Who's Who Panel
@Susan, it is 4:00 PM EDT -- which makes it an after-dinner event for our community members in Europe (and I shudder to think of the time for the Enterprise Efficiency community members in Pakistan, India, and Southeast Asia!)

It's one of the challenges of a global community; someone is always logging on in the middle of the night. Fortunately, we have a great group of people here in the E2 community, and we're going to do our best to make it worthwhile to follow the coverage.
