A couple of weeks ago I made a commitment to you—that I would tap into our innovative NetApp nature to design a cutting-edge, digital experience that will bring the content that we had planned for Paris and Berlin in-person events to all of you across EMEA.
So, it’s with great excitement and gratitude that I share with you that we’ve done just that! Our NetApp INSIGHT Digital Event will come to a screen near you on Thursday, April 23rd starting at 10:00 AM CET.
We all know that the shift from in-person to digital is a different experience. However, we aim to make YOUR experience top-notch! While much of our content will be the same highly valuable information that you’d receive at an in-person show, we now will add to that valuable new levels of interaction, engagement and education to help drive your business forward. You’ll have access to your favorite mega sessions, hands-on labs, and 80+ breakout and technical sessions for you to learn at your own pace—and from the comfort of your home!
Storytelling is also critical during a time like this, that’s why you’ll still get the real case study stories from some of our industry-leading customers—hearing directly from those who are seizing new opportunities with the Cloud. And learn how modernizing IT can help simplify your approach to Cloud, Enterprise Applications and AI. Last but not least, you’ll hear directly from those who are shaping the future of NetApp, including CEO George Kurian.
It’s incredibly important for us to remain connected at a time when we might feel disconnected. That’s why we developed a live Q&A for you to engage in real-time interactions throughout the event. Vote for your favorite innovations, rate your top presentations and ask those hard-hitting questions—just as you’d do at our in-person events,
The platform in which we bring INSIGHT to you has indeed shifted, but our commitment to bringing you an innovative and technically oriented experience has not. We will look back at this time and be amazed that we did this together near and far, in your home office or at your kitchen table. Regardless, we were unified and innovative, together. Let’s continue on this path to success.
