Record breaking: With over 200 submissions, this year’s “call for speakers” was the largest ever crop of topic suggestions for xChange 2011, the annual Serena customer conference to be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 19-21.

Over the last six weeks the product teams have been working through the submissions and their task has been very difficult. So many excellent presentations and so few speaking slots. Indeed we have actually opened up additional space to accommodate more of the ideas.

This week the top 80 suggestions went online and you can now

xChange 2011 is Serena’s Global User Conference and will be held at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 19-21.  And we want you to be our guest!  We are accepting ideas for presentations you would like to give at the conference and, if selected, you’ll receive a free pass worth $1,995.

Serena customers cover vast types of businesses, hundreds of integrated applications and thousands of use case experiences. We’d like to share a few of them with everyone. Tell us about your business requirements and share how Serena Software was able to meet those needs. Tell us about your journey and how your business has changed because of the implementation of Serena Software solutions.

Tuesday’s Federal User Group meeting at the Reagan Building in Washington DC proved a great success.  A couple of hundred users congregated to share tips, and to hear from Serena, Gartner and each other.

It was inspiring!  Civilian agencies and military branches alike are doing terrific things with their Serena software.  Developing apps faster, releasing them quickly and with high quality, and doing more with less.  That last is important around the world right now, but especially so in the halls of government.  It was heartening to see that Serena customers are part of the solution to this challenging budget situation.

Keep an eye out for a press release next week detailing the event,
