RT @jvoskuhl: @zarafagroupware Today i received my #Zarafa Certified Engineer certificate... Happy :-) http://t.co/ozMCGuCvCA
Spring is at our doorstep. And usually this means new life, the first sun beams and longer days. My life as a marketing manager also changes a bit. Many IT events are organized during the spring. And this seems to make sense because as an IT professional, you are most likely pursuing your year goals for 2014. Maybe you are looking at your calendar to see if you should visit one or two of those events to get a grip on what's going on in your field.
And when you have visited IT events before, you may have noticed traditional groupware is becoming a commodity. This was one of the reasons behind our last seminar "Life Beyond Email" (download the presentations) in Brussels. It is clear organizations have a need for other collaboration tools, too.
You can think about joining the events below when this sounds familiar. We are there as well and available for a further chat on the future of web collaboration. We are planning to bring our engineers to discuss the technology as well.
March: CeBIT in Hannover (Germany)
We have visited one of world's largest IT trade fairs from the 10th of March until the 14th of March. We were in hall six showing demo's of the latest WebApp. More than 10 Zarafa partners were also showcasing their integrated solutions.
March: Infosecurity on the 26-27th of March
One of Belgium's biggest IT trade fair is coming up. For this event, we will team up with partner B.A in their booth. You can chat with us on topics like the security of collaboration data, cloud strategies and mobile device management.
April: Open source conference in Londen (UK)
Open source is experiencing real growth in the United Kingdom. We have also welcomed many new UK customers into the Zarafa family in 2013. On the 3rd of April, we will join our partner Omnis Systems at their booth. Together, we can show you why other organizations are commited to open source products. You can also take a sneak peek at the latest Zarafa WebApp.
April: Partner meet-up in Germany
We will organize an afternoon event on the 10th of April in Essen. This event is inspired by our yearly Zarafa Tour where we collect feedback on the release roadmap for ZCP, WebApp and other products. Partners are invited to join and especially share their thoughts.
April: Let’s meet in France (Paris area)
We have planned customer sessions to show WebApp. We are always up for a cup of coffee or nice lunch (with wine, we are in France after all).
May: Partner meet-up in the Netherlands
This is going to be the second partner meet-up of 2014. Partners from the Netherlands and Belgium can join to discuss customer feedback and ideas for the future. We have just started with the organization.
