If you’re looking to take your cloud journey to the next level and inspire your teams to innovate more and take your digital platform further, these NetApp INSIGHT playlists are for you.
One of the things that inspires me most about working at NetApp is working with our teams, partners, and customers to deliver innovations that push the boundaries of our imagination and bring them to life through cloud solutions. As I participated in the kickoff off of NetApp’s signature user event, NetApp INSIGHT® Digital 2021, I was once again blown away with the caliber of the content and the amazing experience of the entire program.
There were inspiring customer stories, detailed technical sessions, cutting-edge demos, several new hybrid cloud announcements, and legendary entertainment – all hosted by “America’s reigning queen of comedy,” Whitney Cummings. And we launched it all on our new streaming digital channel, NetApp TV™.
What’s really exciting to me is how our teams were inspired to innovate and take our ongoing customer event from a standard digital conference to the next level. They offered a dynamic digital experience that delivered massive business value in an entertaining, educational, and easily consumable manner.
Businesses are competing in a digitally transformed world where digital events can live on in perpetuity, with the exponential power to reach out and touch new audiences and influence new customers. In order to succeed, you have to innovate to rise above the crowded playing field.
Success means delighting customers with irresistible end-user experiences, while also sharing their vision, educating audiences, and showcasing technologies and value propositions in action.
INSIGHT Digital 2021 gave us an amazing opportunity to hear from our partners and customers, along with some legendary characters (and how about that big cat?). By innovating our event from content to agenda to platform to the features we can share with our audience, we can now extend our body of work even further. These creative new ways include one of my new favorites – NetApp TV favorites playlists!
Customers ask me all the time, “What’s happening in the cloud right now? How can I innovate more? What do I need to do next?” Thanks to the INSIGHT team (from engineering to content SMEs to marketing), I’ve got you covered!
