Were you at the Ignite conference this year? If not, you missed one of the biggest technology events combining Lync (now Skype for Business), SharePoint, Exchange and more, to build the 21st century collaboration experience- with the central focus being around Innovation & Productivity. Here are a few event highlights, some key learnings and news about the latest collaborative technologies concluding with what to look out for in the enterprise collaboration space.
Last week, MindLink exhibited at the cutting-edge, techiest event of the month, and possibly the year, in London - Enterprise Apps World. The event, co-hosted with Cloud Forum 2014, provided a fantastic showcase for innovative app producers (like ourselves) to display their latest productivity apps for today’s technology oriented enterprises. The event was filled with a large array of audiences (about 8000 who attended the Cloud Forum simultaneously) representing a wide variety of industries and roles who showed a great interest in MindLink’s Business Critical Collaboration solutions built on Microsoft Lync.
Las Vegas! The place where dreams come true – well, admittedly when it comes to the biggest gathering of Lync users, experts & partners worldwide, this certainly isn’t far from the truth.
Here we were again this year, with a bigger presence and our own booth, making contacts and showcasing our newest mobile & collaborations apps.
MindLink Software organised its first Collaboration Forum under the topic of ‘Tools-Implementation- Results’ in London last week, and we are proud to have hosted a highly dynamic corporate event that took place in the presence of several top executives from multiple diverse industries. The key highlight of the day was our Collaboration Speakers: Guy Clapperton, Freelance technology journalist and editor of UCInsights; Peter Culver from Redburn Partners, Glen Farrelly from Blackberry accompanied by his colleague David Arnold, Daniel Valik from Microsoft and Howard Travers from MindLink Software.
MindLink just returned from a very successful event, sponsoring the Knowledge Management World 2013 in Washington DC. More than 1000 attendees from various industries and sectors flew to Washington to hear the latest on collaborative organisations and tools available to share & disseminate knowledge within their companies.
Just another day at work - this is how our team take a break from software development. The idea of having an FCG ‘away day’ is to ensure everyone has some ‘away time from their computer’ for a day. We have been having away day for years, but they were traditionally ‘away weekends’. This time, we tried a different formula: one day event on a work day and letting the team decide what they want to do on a day specially designed for them.
