Something big just happened. And it was amazing. Our very first truly digital mega event, Digital Week 2020, just wrapped in the Americas and EMEA. For those of us who joined us live, we hope you felt as invigorated and inspired as we did. We had 2,225 people sign up to participate. We had 75+ unique sessions of content — from thought-leading discussions with analysts and influencers to zippy, quick tech roundtables and coffee chats. We covered a wide range of topics, trends, and technologies.
We had more attendees at our keynotes — and more meetings and conversations — than ever before. Dion Hinchcliffe (from Constellation Research) and Wayne Kurtzman (from IDC) both signalled to the market that we are a low-code powerhouse. We had major product releases — including the world premiere of our new game-changer, HCL Volt MX (that session had more than 500 attendees to show up for this blockbuster news). In addition, we launched new, exciting versions of HCL Digital Experience, HCL Sametime Premium, HCL Connections v7, and gave a preview of HCL Domino v12 and our vision for the future of the digital office.
For data geeks, check this out: We had 2+ terabytes and 35 hours of content — plus almost 50 hours of breakout HCL Sametime meeting rooms. Oh, and only 5 instances of “can you hear me?,” 7 of “is this on?” and 27 of “you’re on mute.” Plus 11,250 beverages were consumed at the coffee chats and happy hours. And ZERO miles were traveled. Watch this video, which captures the buzz and energy perfectly.
Thank you for joining us. You helped us achieve bigger conversations, bigger sessions, and bigger releases. Thank you for making our first truly digital event as possible and powerful as it was — and we have another great lineup for the first week in December for our customers, partners, and friends in APJ.
We are poised and ready to be the partner of choice for digital transformation. Let’s transform the future — together. See you at the next great event!
