The program featured presentations not only by Polarion employees, but also by several customer and partner companies. Speakers from the Automotive, Electronics and Engineering, Embedded Development,– and more – delivered innovative best-practice approaches in Requirements Management, Test Management, and Application Lifecycle Management. Among these speakers were users from Mercedes Car Group, Siemens,, T-Systems International GmbH and Vaillant GmbH, who presented the practical value of our solutions for their organizations.

As in the years before, attendees had the great opportunity to interact with Polarion Software's experts, such as our SVP Strategy & Business Development Stefano Rizzo, VP Research & Development Nick Entin, Product Manager Jiri Walek and Professional Services Manager Timothy Ströbele who were available throughout the conference for feedback and discussions.
