Enterprise World 2016: Best Tweets Monday & Tuesday

While this year’s Enterprise World was buzzing with activity, some of us on the outside clung to the notifications on our Twitter and Facebook feeds to get a glimpse of the event itself. From the venue and the insightful speaker talks to the interactions between partners, colleagues, customers and solutions experts, some of the tweets coming in were inspiring and so hard to ignore (ok, so we’re a tiny bit jealous).

Day 1: Monday

The venue mesmerized us as the OpenText branding could be seen decorating almost every corner of the convention center.

Just look at the view!

In case you’re wondering, the eatery on the right in Larry’s photo above is Stax, a burger joint in the Delta section of the convention center. The center resort is enormous with 4 giant sections that house restaurants, hotels, shopping areas, recreational and nightlife spots, not including the convention center itself.

I’m in awe of those real-life indoor palm trees above.

A look inside the Partner Summit! What a great time to network with colleagues and share stories about the successes of our partners.

Day 2: Tuesday

Tuesday was the start of Enterprise World 2016 and customers and colleagues from all over the world joined for an amazing start to our day with a keynote speech that revealed some amazing details on what’s coming up for OpenText.

First up was the announcement of our new collaborative environment for integrating social networks with information engagement. Bandaroo received lots of praise after its first demo revealed a look at the bot interactivity and showcased secure information engagement. Check out the newly-launched Twitter page for Project Bandaroo for more information.

Next up was another sensational announcement for Magellan, a highly cognitive platform that can be used to build apps by anyone, for anyone.

Our president Steve Murphy took to the stage with colleagues from Insure the Box, Alberta Energy Regulator and Westpac Banking Corporation for dialogues on the successes these companies have had with the implementation of various OpenText solutions. We heard wonderful and inspiring stories regarding new technologies being developed as a result of these partnerships.

Executive Vice President of Engineering Muhi Majzoub hosted various demos on Release 16 suites, showcasing some of the best features available.

Finally, we had the honor and privilege of watching Colonel Chris Hadfield deliver an amazing speech to round off the keynote sessions. He captivated our audience and led us through a fantastic commentary about risk, filled with anecdotes and inspiring words to keep pushing ourselves beyond the limits.

Can we say we were starstruck?

We had a sneak peek of some awesome selfies at popular photo spots in Nashville. Keep ’em comin’ everyone! Tag your photos with #OTEW on any social media platform for a chance to be featured in our daily Enterprise World Media roundup.
