Survey: OTM Training at upcoming OTM User Conference

The OTM SIG Board received many requests last year to include training sessions during the next OTM User Conference in Philadelphia. In preparation for this conference, we need your help in selecting the most popular topic and we need to know how many participants we can expect.

This training will be about 3-4 hours and it will be interactive: you will need to bring your laptop and you will have to do exercises on an OTM training server. We will arrange a top-notch OTM Trainer, printed training documents, and a number of experienced OTM training consultants will be present to help you if you run into issues.

Please complete the survey no later than April 17. Thank you!
