Janders Dean set the scene for San Diego

Our thanks to the guys at the Janders Dean for this scene-setter for next week's Elite User Conference in San Diego…

“As the A&O team continue towards assessing the go-live of their London and international finance departments from last weekend, we are expecting Thomson Elite to undertake a massive press drive on the opening day of the 2009 Thomson Elite User Conference (June 9th -11th) with the news about the go-live.

“Interestingly, we understand that the firm (in an effort to reduce the visible change impact on users) will not be using the native time recording features of the 3E product in favour of an integration with the firm's existing Carpe Diem fee earner facing application.

“The agenda information for the Elite conference states that Allen & Overy and Baker Robbins & Company will co-present the custom billing workflow used within 3E to improve the firm’s billing process. The presentation will begin with a study of the methodology used to define the specifications and justification for the custom workflow. Next, the session will focus on the approach and lessons learned in building the workflow using the 3E IDE. Finally, the session will discuss the piloting, training and deployment of the workflow along with early results….might be a wee bit early for 'early results' though given the timeline at the firm.

“The conference should be a useful forum, and delegates should have easy access to Elite personnel given that numbers will understandably be well down on previous years.”

Just saw your post on Janders Dean…didn't they have a hits in the 60s with 'Surf City' and 'The Little Old Lady from Pasadena'?

A bit bitchy. But, hey, surely no-one at Janders Dean has any reason to feel a grudge towards Elite so we wonder where that comes from?

Thanks Charles.
We've also just had confirmation that the combined A&O and Baker Robbins session will be presented by Sonnie Yoon of BRCo and both Helen Sheeran and Brian Dunlop from A&O – this is a must see on the agenda for anyone at the conference with a 3E t-shirt, and we're expecting to hear that there will be standing room only for it.
Oh…and in response to the comment, we also did a b-side re-mix of 'Songs About Rainbows'.
Worth noting that when recording this, we discovered that there actually are not that many songs about rainbows irrespective of what Kermit said. We can think of four or five only – which in itself doesn't really warrant the line 'why are there so many songs about rainbows?'.
Moreover, if you consider the fact that the next line is '…and what's on the other side…' you have an even greater challenge. Apart from Dorothy's version, how many songs can you really name that are about both rainbows and what is on the other side of them?
Now that question surely can't have as many responses as recent posts on IRIS…proving our point yet again that Kermit was clearly wrong in his original lyrics.

JD – you need to use Google more often:

Got to give JD credit though for their PR wiles – association by inference, despite them having nothing to do with the A&O project.

The issue is of course is that very few of that list were around when Kermit penned his lyrics. Perhaps the famous frog could see into the future!!
If only he could have also figured out that Miss Piggy was the source of swine flu he wouldn't have tried the moves on….

Personally I blame IRIS for the current outbreak of Swine Flu…

They probably also had something to do with Labour's poor performance in the EU elections
