The keynote speaker was Rostislav Vocilka, CEO at Invea-Tech. „The last year was a breaking point for us in all aspects. We increased our sales dramatically, established new technology partnerships and gained important customers,“ said Vocilka. „Many thanks goes to you, our customers and partners, we would not be where we are without you. Building a trust is incredibly important for us, therefore we still massively invest into our products, support and services to keep in touch with your most demanding needs. This year we are presenting Flowmon 8 here. This is the next generation of our core solution and a great promise that this year will be at least as successful as the last one,” he added.
After the keynote, individual presentations started. The main focus was on the new functions of Flowmon 8.0, especially on application performance monitoring and DDoS attacks detection and mitigation. The news were presented by Petr Špringl, Sales Director Czech Republic, and Pavel Minařík, Chief Technology Officer.
Flowmon Friday hosted also experts from technology partner companies and customers. Radek Boch, System Engineer at Cisco Systems, outlined the future of NetFlow technology. Petr Lasek, Sales Engineer at Radware Ltd., introduced the issue of DDoS attacks and cooperation between Radware and Invea-Tech. The successful implementations of Flowmon were presented by e.g. Jan Devetter of Occupational Health Insurance Company, Jiří Štembera of ČD-Telematika or Petr Vobořil of KBC Global Services.
The event was traditionally finished by The Best Partner Award ceremony. VUMS Datacom retained The Czech Distributor of The Year 2014 title. The Czech Partner of the Year prize went to Dimension Data, which implemented FlowMon solution e.g. in Kofola, one of the leading non-alcoholic beverage producers in Europe.
