Our team visited the Sitecore Symposium 2014 held in Barcelona (September 15-17)
Three of our members, including one Sitecore MVP, visited the event held in Barcelona.
The Symposium started with the keynote of Sitecore version 8, with prominent speakers such as Sitecore CEO Michael Seifert. We learned about the latest features and the importance of thinking about the interactions with the consumers as experiences, that we provide and for which we are responsible, rather than just simple journeys ending in page view and click-through statistics.
The keynote was followed by a short break and the launch of the three concurrent session tracks. Business, Product and Developer sessions were held in separate seminar rooms. The speakers included Sitecore members and others too, for example Peter O'Neill, the Vice President and Research Director of Forrester Research Inc, providing us great insight on market trend changes and the most efficient ways of marketing and sales to stay on top of the game.
On the 17th, another prominent speaker held an amazing presentation. This inspirational speech was held by Dietmar Dahmen, a world-famoous visionary and futurologist of advertising and marketing experience.
The Sitecore V8 Keynote and Dietmar Dahmen's presentation videos are available here.
