The Band’s Getting Back Together in ‘Music City’: Register Now for Cleo Connect 2018

Cleo’s annual user conference set October 16-19 in Nashville; registration now open

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Knowledge is power when it comes to improving customer and partner relationships, meeting evolving market demands and industry requirements, and pursuing cloud integration initiatives to expand the value of your IT ecosystem.

That’s why Cleo, the global leader in B2B-led cloud integration solutions that enable these modern business needs, is excited to announce that registration is open for its Cleo Connect 2018 customer event at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. Cleo Connect is a three-day summit bringing together Cleo executives, advisers, customers, and partners who are shaping the way today’s enterprises create value through strategic integration technology.

Cleo’s annual user conference, which runs Oct. 16-19, provides exclusive access to the latest Cleo software updates, insights on integration use cases, and a strategic roadmap for the Cleo Integration Cloud, the innovative platform enabling value creation at the edge of digital ecosystems by connecting and integrating business partners, applications, and big data through solutions that support business agility.

A welcome reception Oct. 16 kicks off three days of educational opportunities, hands-on experiences, and social events in the “Music City,” including:

  • Technical sessions highlighting tips and best-practices for using Cleo integration products
  • One-on-one workshops with Cleo product, services, and engineering teams
  • Customer round-table perspectives on how real companies use the Cleo Integration Cloud to increase business value
  • Networking opportunities with peers, Cleo executives, and staff

Cleo President and CEO Mahesh Rajasekharan will deliver the keynote address, titled “Creating Value at the Edge of Digital Ecosystems,” on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with sessions continuing through Friday, Oct. 19. Additional agenda highlights include such topics as:

  • “Modernization Starts with Ecosystem Integration”
  • “Best Practices for Migrating to the Cloud”
  • “On-Premise is Dead: Enter the Private Cloud”
  • “B2B Application Integration Connectors: Deriving Business Value from Your Ecosystem”

“Our top priority is ensuring that Cleo’s B2B-led cloud integration offerings consistently empower each customer to achieve their desired business outcomes and create value in new ways,” Rajasekharan said. “In-person collaboration during events like Cleo Connect helps us align our technology to deliver increasingly better results for our customers, and we’re excited to grow these relationships and open new dialogues on issues challenging global businesses today.”

“Too many software companies abandon their customers after the contract is signed, and we believe in the exact opposite approach at Cleo,” said Ken Lyons, Cleo’s senior vice president of worldwide sales. “We’ve shaped Cleo Connect to be an interactive way for our great customers to get advanced training and valuable face time with the technology partner providing their critical enterprise integration solutions. We value the opportunity to further learn about our customers’ businesses and their top-of-mind concerns as they grow.”

Past Cleo Connect attendees echo similar sentiments on the value of the event.

“I cannot recommend Cleo Connect enough for Cleo customers – and prospective customers – to learn more about the company’s latest integration innovations and its overall direction,” said Octapharma USA Director of IT Michael Donham, who participated in last year’s Cleo Connect customer panel. “I’m again looking forward to this year’s event and the great opportunities to plug into such a collaborative community like Cleo, that’s tirelessly working to solve real-world data movement and B2B integration challenges.”

The Cleo Connect 2018 early-bird registration rate of $795 (a 33 percent savings off the regular conference rate) is valid through May 15 and includes all meals and admission to the special event nights.
