Did you miss it? Bizagi Catalyst 18 took place in Miami last week!! Thank you to all of you who traveled to be with us! For those of you that couldn’t make it we wanted to create a roundup here of all the most important highlights from the event.
The Catalyst 18 conference brought together Bizagi customers and partners from across the globe to sunny Miami for a two day event of networking, learning and collaborating on strategies for accelerating digital transformation.
Here are the top 10 moments from the event:
1 – Catalyst kick-off with our CEO
Bizagi Catalyst kicked off with some wise words from our very own CEO, Gustavo Gomez. He set the scene for the event with strategic insights on digital transformation, especially the importance of contextualization in delivering the digital experiences that employees and customers have come to expect today.
2 – This Guy knows his stuff
We were honored to be joined by the Guy Kawasaki, Chief Evangelist at Canva, Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassador and Former Apple Exec. He spoke about The Art of Innovation and shared snippets from his time working with Steve Jobs at Apple in Silicon Valley.
3 – Stories of real digital transformation
Bizagi Catalyst bought together a host of customers who shared their stories, including Bancolombia, Old Mutual, Citizens Bank, Washington State DRS, Travelport, ManpowerGroup, Kyocera and many more. Videos of the presentations will be available online soon. Subscribe to our YouTube channel today and you’ll see those as we publish them in the coming weeks.
4 – Bizagi in action
To demonstrate the full capabilities of Bizagi, Brian Stults and Heidi Silver took to the stage and acted out a real-life scenario of buying car insurance. Heidi used her intelligent app, supported by AI chatbots and real-time aggregated information from the DMV. We learned a lot, including that you shouldn’t ever let Heidi borrow your car!
5 – Important Bizagi platform announcements
Head of Product Marketing Steve Tassell shared a vision and philosophy for the Bizagi platform that was supported by a range of important announcements. These included the launch of:
- An updated Modeler Services offering including brand new plans
- Upcoming native integration to any RPA technology in Bizagi Studio
- Upcoming Bizagi Studio Services to facilitate co-development in the cloud
6 – Perfect partners
We were joined by several partners at the event, including our Visionary Partner, Infosys. The leader in next-generation digital services were on hand to answer customer questions in the Expo area and presented on how to build customer value on the digital transformation journey.
Other partners presenting and showcasing included Innovelocity, Lateetud, Nividous, BP3, and UiPath.
7 – What killed the dinosaurs?
Incumbent businesses are faced with an ultimatum: digitally transform or face extinction. Steven ‘Bo’ Beaudoin Jr took us on a journey back to the time of the dinosaurs, right through to today and the millennial customer base, highlighting the importance of adapting to your surroundings. Don’t be a dinosaur: anticipate what your customers want and use technology to deliver it.
8 – Social networking
In between sessions, there was plenty of opportunity for delegates to network. It was great to see customers coming together and sharing their experiences and learnings with each other. Plus a pool party to let loose after a day of learning!
