PARTNERS COMMENTS                               (from the closing press release of Smau Milano 2011)

Our participation at Smau was crucial to enable us to present the benefits of our new Channel program, Intel Technology Provider
and to compare with the large number of ICT players in the territory. The large attendance to the courses run at our booth has
demonstrates once again the awareness and maturity of local ICT players in considering the ICT sector the only competitive factor for
the growth of business .
Luca Romani, Regional Channel Manager, Intel Italy & Switzerland

The participation to SMAU allowed us to meet with entrepreneurs, managers, public sector and IT professionals, with whom we have
detailed the most innovative technology trends during the event, from conferences to our workshops and training. We focused on the
benefits of Cloud computing, showing the effectiveness of solutions such as Microsoft Office 365, a simple and flexible solution which
can support also the smallest companies on the Cloud. At Smau we also reconfirmed our commitment to support the competitiveness
of Small and Medium Enterprises and business partners through concrete actions and a team focused just on Cloud Computing.
Aware of the great opportunities of the cloud, Microsoft wants to promote its adoption and diffusion to support the growth of the
national economy. Smau was also an important meeting and discussion with representatives of the Public Sector with whom Microsoft
has been working for a long time to accelerate the process of digitization of the country.

We returned to Smau Milano after a long time of absence, convinced of the importance of a project that is unique in Italy and it
is able to aggregate the major players in the ICT market, universities, associations. UCC, Cloud, Social are just some of the key
elements that have characterized the presence of Siemens Enterprise Communications at Smau 2011, and that, together with business
applications, can represent an important growing opportunity for Italian companies. OpenScape V6, the latest new product just
announced during the event, is based on these elements with innovative capabilities in the communications media on the desktop and
the integration with Skype communication environment. Smau has represented, and very successfully, an important time for sharing
and comparing “cultural” issues and key technologies for the present and the future of the country, in which Siemens wants to continue
to exercise a significant role.
Riccardo Ardemagni, Chief Executive Officer Siemens Enterprise Communications

The participation of Telecom Italy at Smau Milano 2011 shows the path of development taken by our company to provide not only

medium enterprises, professionals, large enterprises and public sector that wish to contribute, with Telecom Italy, to the growth of the
