Enable attending Richmond Events FD Networking Forum

Filed as EventsPosted July 15, 2010

Enable are pleased to announce that we will, once again, be attending the highly successful FD Networking Forum organised by UK based events company, Richmond Events. The three day forum will take place later this year (13 -16 October) aboard the P&O flagship vessel, Arcadia.

Having attended previous events organised by Richmond, we look forward to three continuous days of valuable networking and pre-arranged business meetings with Finance Directors and CFO’s from some of Europe’s leading companies.

We have previously attended both IT Director and Finance Director-focussed events and found that the one-to-one networking / speed meeting format to be a highly effective platform for conveying the Enable message. It would take a great deal of time to generate such an audience through ‘cold calling’ and more conventional lead generation means.

Enable specialises in the development of browser based business systems, often to replace legacy applications, Excel spreadsheets and Access databases that have become business critical. The c. 40 meetings over the course of three days not only gives us plenty of opportunity to perfect our pitch but also provides valuable insight into the problems that our prospective clients are currently facing in their day to day business.

The combination of fast paced business, intensive timetables and top class hospitality always make the ‘boat trips’ a memorable event. The business that we have secured and the contacts made at these events prove to us (and our clients) that the Enable message is one worth hearing.

Automatic scaling of Azure SQL Databases

Enable hosts most of its DealTrack clients in Microsoft Azure, taking advantage of the wide range of resources it offers, including Azure SQL Databases. In general, each DealTrack client will have their own SQL database within Azure containing their own data, varying wildly in usage patterns and performance needs. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult to decide on the appropriate performance tiers, often resulting in the over-provisioning of resources based on peak usage and over paying.
