Adaptive Live 2016, a Journey to Insights, was held last week and by all accounts was a great success. Carlson, a Gold Sponsor, sent a large contingent to take in the workshops, meet with our clients, and network with Adaptive customers and staff. The team flew in on Tuesday and, after the Welcome Reception, enjoyed dinner at a great Italian restaurant with clients. The restaurant was particularly happy since we had 26 people in our party!
The main conference kicked off on Wednesday with keynotes and an inspiring presentation by Ben Saunders, the polar explorer and adventurer. Ethan Carlson, CEO of Carlson, and our customer panel including Neal Williams from Year Up and Eric Boehm from Seventh Generation discussed Unified Data and how to make Adaptive Insights a central hub for improved planning and decision-making (thanks to all who attended!). The day capped up with the Adaptive Live Gala featuring Cirque du Soleil. Adaptive Insights really knows how to throw a party!
Thursday offered another day of sessions for building Adaptive skills and knowledge. The team really benefited from discussions with Adaptive staff on new features and the roadmap. We also had strong visitation at our booth and enjoyed demonstrating our vertical solutions built on the Adaptive platform. There was also strong interest in DataBlend, our cloud integration solution designed for business users.
Overall, another great Adaptive Live. Please take a moment to check out the video below.
