To See Is To Believe: The DocuSign MOMENTUM EMEA 2014 Roundup

Entering the reception of The Brewery, you were welcomed with DocuSign’s famous branding and yellow logo. DocuSign MOMENTUM EMEA had finally arrived. The Tweet Wall was growing ever busier and anticipation was building as breakfast was served in in the Partner Pavilion and DocuSign Experience. With 350 partners, customers, prospects and employees in attendance and a host of exciting speakers, would #DSM14 live up to the billing that was promised? As much we love to talk about it, I think it’s best to view it through the eyes of the people who made the event what it was. So here’s a roundup of the day’s action - in app posts, pictures and tweets.

Following on from Neil Hudspith’s warm welcome, the DocuSign CEO, Keith Krach greeted a packed main room in his passionate style. There was a lot of excitement around DocuSign’s recent round of funding and admiration for Virgin Galactic (who is sending Keith to space).

DocuSign founder, Tom Gonser then portrayed the growing use of devices in the modern era and announced that DocuSign data centres will arrive in Europe this year! He was joined on stage by Pascal Colin to discuss the recent partnering with OpenTrust and our continuous innovation with Salesforce’s Mellissa Di Donato.

Ryan Cox then covered the DocuSign product vision as he showcased the latest user experience live on stage: easy, fast and intuitive.

DocuSign’s partner ecosystem is a critical component to helping DocuSign customers achieve rapid ROI, fully-automate critical business processes, and maximise the advantages for conducting business in the cloud. They have been fundamental to the overall growth of the organisation and continue to drive us forward with their partnership at #DSM14. The most fun about last week’s event was getting the opportunity to talk to other organisations and partners about DocuSign and the development of Digital Transaction Management (DTM) in EMEA.

Following the first set of breakouts and morning keynotes, a well-deserved break was enjoyed by all during lunch in the Porter Tun, accompanied by music from Raven.

Throughout the day, as DocuSign executives and those of our partnering companies gave their presentations, attendees had very powerful insights and take-aways. Nine different breakouts were held from Salesforce, Good, Microsoft, Xactly and our own DocuSign experts.

We measure our success by our customer’s success. Clients from DavisTate, PainSmith Solicitors and Hurford Salvi Carr provided insight into the future of digital transactions in the property panel. Jesper Frederiksen, the VP & GM of DocuSign EMEA then hosted a customer success panel with Van Gansewinkel Groep, Dun & Bradstreet, SAP and HealthTrust Europe to discuss the challenges of each of their respective use cases and share best practice.

DocuSign’s Chief Legal Officer, Ken Moyle closed with great aplomb by demystifying the myths around electronic and digital signatures in EMEA and re-stating the legality of the DTM platform, receiving a great response as always!

Booth Street West elegantly brought down the lights on the networking reception to complete a fantastic day at DocuSign MOMENTUM EMEA 2014.

We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to another action-packed event and hope you gained plenty of insight into the future of digital business. Look forward seeing you next year!

CloudEXPO Stories
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.

It cannot be overseen or regulated by any one administrator, like a government or bank. Currently, there is no government regulation on them which also means there is no government safeguards over them. Although many are looking at Bitcoin to put money into, it would be wise to proceed with caution. Regular central banks are watching it and deciding whether or not to make them illegal (Criminalize them) and therefore make them worthless and eliminate them as competition. ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are something most have no idea as to what it means and how you utilize it. Where is the "Stamp of Approval" or "Stamp of Legitimacy" on some of these Bitcoin websites (how do you know you are not dealing with a scammer?)
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.

And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
