STEM User Group Meeting 2017

04 May 2017

2017 sees the launch of a new business model for Implied Logic. Our annual customer forum will explore the changing requirements we have adapted to, as well as the new ways of working we are introducing which will ease adoption and refine the experience for existing users.

The STEM User Group Meeting in September 2017 will literally start over with no assumptions in terms of prior knowledge. We will build a detailed, generic business case from the ground up, comparing the approach of a fixed resource base, milked for all it is worth, with a more agile, driver-based approach. We will generate all the essential technical and financial outputs as a matter of course while exploring the impact of varying levels of service activity. What we think of as traffic in telecoms might look like per-customer sales volume in an online retail model. This agenda plays to the new or even prospective users in the audience, but it also presents an opportunity for existing users to review their own approach and potentially pick up a few tricks along the way.

Previous guests will testify to the open and fearless approach of these sessions where the audience is encouraged to ask the hardest questions as an opportunity for the host to demonstrate the coolest solutions! You can expect to see the structure and assumptions of these models iterated in real-time, and for the STEM visual software for the reliable modelling of business to just keep working.

Provisional programme for the STEM User Group Meeting 2017

The 22nd STEM User Group Meeting will be held in the forward-thinking environment of King’s College, Cambridge, UK, on Wednesday–Thursday 27–28 September 2017. This is a once-a-year opportunity to mingle with and influence the STEM modelling community.

Formal and more detailed invitations will be sent out in June but you are more than welcome to register in advance via our new online store. Attendance to the event itself is free, but you are required to meet your own travel and hotel expenses. Accommodation can be scarce in this thriving hi-tech city, so book early to avoid disappointment.
