Thanksgiving is the occasion that always signifies the beginning of the holiday season in some regions of the world, including here in the US. I think it’s very appropriate that the first thing on which we focus as we enter into the holidays is being thankful. Thankfulness is a globally relevant idea. It engenders grace, humility and reminds us to not take all our blessings for granted amidst our fast paced business lives.
While this is a business conversation, first and foremost we must be thankful to our families and friends who provide the very foundation on which our business lives rest. We must thank them for their generosity with our time that we devote to our work lives.
Today, I am also thankful for the fantastic and unique road that we with the Enterprise Content Division (ECD) have traveled over the past year. When we began 2016, few people could have anticipated what the future had in store for our organization. But in so many ways, the journey we have taken together has brought us closer and made us stronger both as a team and an organization.
So, to start the holiday season, we’d like take a moment to express thanks for the following:
• First, of course, we are extremely thankful for our team. Time and again through the year’s transformation, we’ve received glowing compliments about our tenacity, industry knowledge, innovative mindset and customer focus. These are all things that allow us to feel very confident about our future together in seasons to come.
• We are thankful for our partner community. Our partners have not only joined with us in a renewed commitment to delivering superior results to our customers, but have also maintained a focused commitment to providing a superior customer experience all along the digital transformation journey.
• We are thankful for our customers. They have been our thought partners and have continued to challenge us to get better. They have also been able to see beyond market noise and have maintained faith that ECD always has and will continue to provide the solutions that will best support their digital transformation and content management goals, both now and into the future.
• We are thankful for those who joined us at our Las Vegas and Barcelona Momentum events and Customer.NEXT roadshows. The support and collaboration that so many of you brought back to us was great inspiration and confirmation of our efforts to provide the best user experience in the industry.
We’d like to wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings, as well as a holiday season that is as full of blessings as the ones for which we are so grateful.
