Enterworks Hosts Its Engage 2018 User Conference In New Orleans
“The Big Easy – Engage Style” Theme Highlights How the EnterWorks Community Works Together to Streamline and Drive Value from MDM & PIM Initiatives
Compelling product content and seamless, centralized data are essential to compete in today’s omnichannel world, as enabled by PIM and MDM solutions. Traditionally, the focus in this market has been on data quality and operational efficiencies but, increasingly, demand-centric value creation from a company’s market offerings is emerging. The conference agenda and speaker mix reflect the reshaping of value created from such core data and content programs, starting with the first keynote.
The Day 1 Engage Keynote speaker will feature Bruce Eppinger, Senior Analyst for Digital Business Strategy at Forrester Research, who will speak on “Future Trends in Digital Business.” He will draw from the just completed Forrester Waves for B2C Commerce Suites (a first look!) and PIM Wave completed in June, which recognized EnterWorks as Leader. Bruce is well-known for his views on how product and customer experience management are transforming the commerce and content marketplace.
He will be preceded by Rick Chavie, CEO of EnterWorks, who will give insights into the EnterWorks strategy, platform, partners, and team that is focused on enabling value creation for customers.
“We are growing at a rapid pace because of the commitment we have to the EnterWorks community and their superb support of our efforts. The annual Engage event is, in part, our thanks to the those who are making possible our strides in the market,” Chavie said. “It is our stage for connecting members of the community to each other to share experiences from MDM and PIM initiatives in terms of managing implementations and getting the best results from them.”
The Day 2 keynote speaker will feature Chef Jeff Henderson, Author and Star of Flip My Food with Chef Jeff and his unique background in overcoming challenges as he speaks on“Embracing Market Change & Adapting to Seize Opportunities.” Chef Jeff will also incorporate element of EnterWorks’ own Precision EatingTM concept, which highlights the importance of innovation and a willingness to adapt to the personalized needs and preferences of customers.
