The Realize Live 2019 event should look back not just on the previous year but a decade or more - about 15 yrs. In those days, around 2001-2005, Solid Edge was growing rapidly and more people embracing it and becoming proficient, but not really experts.
So it was mostly Siemens PLM (i.e. UGS) employees who conducted sessions at annual meets. I think this should change, though not drastically but gradually. End users should be encouraged to present and share knowledge.
Last year I struggled, begging so many people to let me present at the Connection event. Finally, I was 'accommodated' with Mark Thompson and though the presentation went well, it was overall a sad episode.
SiemensPLM should encourage and support more end-users to do the presentations and knowledge sharing.
Solid Edge University is conducted in 10-12 cities out here in India and most are full of sales presentations and demos and nothing really to learn as expected from a 'university'. My request for presenting a knowledge session was ignored this year as well for local events.
I would like to see more of end-users involved in the presentations at Realize Live 2019
