Always a highlight of any Interex conference, the Management Roundtable at this year’s IPROF offered hope for upgrade pricing relief and a lengthy analysis of the viability of the 918DX developer’s bundle – hardly a surprise in a conference devoted to programmers.

HP assembled its leading CSY management for the roundtable, with the exception of general manager Harry Sterling. CSY panelists included marketing manager Roy Breslawski, R&D Lab Manager Winston Prather, R&D Lab Section managers Jim Sartain and Dave Wilde and V. S. Subrahmanyam, as well as SSD product marketing manager Doug Blackwood to address support and HP vintage product issues. Panelists were joined by Interex Executive Director Chuck Piercy
