InterSystems Insights

As a valued member of our community, welcome to our UK & Ireland end of year newsletter.

We have a brief 30 second video message from our Managing Director for UK and Ireland, Chris Norton, please view below.

Responsiveness Has Never Mattered More

Responsiveness has never mattered more than it does today.  At this year’s InterSystems Virtual Summit, we dug deeply into the topic: the quest for a coronavirus vaccine, the ways organisations can be pliable and adaptable, and how we’re committed to our customers in this ever-changing environment.

More than 3,000 people spanning the globe have participated in our Virtual Summit.  If you weren’t one of them, or if you missed keynotes or focus sessions, we encourage you to watch the replay’s at your convenience.  Dont miss out because we will be replacing them with new content in the new year.

Your feedback is valuable to us and to peers who may be considering their next technology purchase.  Take a few minutes and write your review on an InterSystems product and choose to recieve a free gift.  Gartner will ask you to sign in with LinkedIn or create a free Gartner account so they can verify your identity.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and good health and happiness in 2021.  We look forward to working with you and hope to see you again in person in the new year.

If there is any way in which we can provide you with greater assistance, or if you have any positive news stories you would like to share, please talk to us.
