What’s an HCL Ambassador?  

The HCL Ambassadors Program recognizes customers and partners who go above and beyond to promote HCL Software products, engage with the community, and help others. And now you have the power to recognize and promote these individuals by nominating them to be an HCL Ambassador.   


Access to the program is decided annually following a public nominationHCL judging and selection process. Nominations will be open through November 26, 2020, followed by the internal selection process. The new HCL Ambassadors for BigFix will be announced in December, with the term to commence on January 1, 2021.  

Do you know a BigFix customer or partner who has organized a user group event, written blog posts, forum posts, or created training or helped support other customers to optimize their use of BigFix? We’re lucky to have some wonderful BigFix evangelists within our external customer ecosystem – you know who you are. And now you have the power to recognize and promote these individuals who have gone above and beyond their current roles to help and support others.

How? By nominating them to be an HCL Ambassador for BigFix. BigFix Users can even nominate themselves!
