Next week, more than 400 members of the SailPoint community will join us in Austin for our annual user conference, Navigate 2015. In my seven years with SailPoint, this is my all time favorite event because we get to showcase everything that makes SailPoint a great place to work – our culture, our excitement, our innovation, and our people. And, we get to have in-depth conversations with our customers and partners from around the world.
For Navigate 2015, we’re very excited to announce that Frank W. Abagnale will be our keynote speaker. In case you don’t recognize the name, Frank is the acclaimed subject of the book, movie and Broadway play, ‘Catch Me If You Can.’ He will share his journey from being one of the most wanted imposters in the country to one of the foremost authorities on financial crimes. Frank knows firsthand that punishment of fraud and recovery of stolen funds are so rare that prevention is the only viable course of action, and will set the stage for a series of conversations around how identity management can help mitigate risks.
Navigate has grown into one of the largest gatherings devoted entirely to IAM. This year’s event offers a variety of sessions for our customers, including technical workshops for expert product knowledge, interactive sessions on best practices for maximizing your investment in SailPoint, and broader discussions focused on the future of IAM, (one of the hottest markets right now!). As always, it also provides multiple opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Austin later this month!
For those planning to follow the event on Twitter, the official hashtag is #Navigate15.
