The sun shined over ECIM 2014 - the Annual European E&P Data and Information Management Conference and User Group Meeting

The ECIM 2014 Conference was a success. The feedback from the speakers, attendees and exhibitors was very positive. And the weather was great. Of course everybody was busy joining the sessions until late afternoon during the conference days, but when the program for the day was finished, we could still enjoy a sun and a temperature of 20 degrees celsius outside.
