Avaya Engage - Quick Thoughts

Most of our time here has been in analyst briefing sessions, and our walkabout for the exhibitor showcase was a private tour when the hall was closed to general traffic. So, we've mostly been amongst ourselves and the Avaya team, but that's been plenty in terms of getting up to speed on their offerings and game plan during Chapter 11.  

I'll have more to say about that in a separate writeup, and for now I just wanted to share a few pix of the general vibe here, and overall, it's definitely been good.

 Here Jimmy - that's the name of this band (I think!) - very cool. WAY better than having canned music - at 8am, it's a bit early for rocking out and not really the time for dancing, but you know it would be fun if we all just decided to do that.

 One of the cool launches at the event - Surge - a new approach to network security, and this is the ONA - Open Network Adapter - its works on any network, not just Avaya's.
