Elevate 2018 | Three Opportunities to Unleash the Power

Elevate 2018

The only regional enablement event to help you prepare customers for their data-driven digital transformations.

Copenhagen, June 5-8   

Bangkok, July 9-12

Denver, August 20-23

I’m thrilled to introduce Informatica Elevate, our premiere regional partner enablement event.  As I mentioned at Kickoff in January, one of my top priorities in 2018 is to bring the resources of our enablement team and domain experts to you, our valued partners. Elevate is where this plan comes together.  It’s your opportunity to sit side by side with Informatica’s experts, to meet with Informatica executives, network and have fun.

Each Elevate event features Executive Keynotes and tracks tailored to sales, presales and delivery/implementation roles, with plenty of networking time in between.  The tracks will all be centered around the four journeys that support Data-Driven Digital Transformation—The Cloud Journey, Next Generation Analytics Journey, Data Governance and Compliance Journey and 360 Engagement Journey.

In addition, Elevate 2018 offers an ideal opportunity to satisfy Informatica Partner Program presales and sales accreditation requirements. I plan on attending every city and I hope to see you there.

Why should you attend?

  • Sales: Our field teams will give you everything you need to have effective customer conversations. You’ll be able to use what you learn the moment you leave the event.  We’ll share real customer examples and compelling stories that you can share as well as the right questions to ask to uncover opportunities
  • Presales: You’ll get valuable hands-on experience of the products, and learn about the use cases that support the four customer journeys. You’ll also learn how to build and deliver effective customer-focused demos to drive technical wins. Our experts will share real customer stories that you can use.
  • Delivery: You’ll learn how to successfully install, configure and implement Informatica’s solutions to drive customer success.
