First Day Reflections from CIS Monterey. Follow along on Twitter at #CISmcc (for the Monterey Conference Centre). The Cloud Identity Summit really is the top event on the identity calendar. The calibre of the speakers, the relevance and currency of the material, the depth and breadth of the cohort, and the international spread are all unsurpassed. It's been great to meet old cyber-friends in "XYZ Space" at last -- like Emma Lindley from the UK and Lance Peterman.

We had the opportunity to attend Ceridian’s yearly user conference CeridianINSIGHTS in Las Vegas July 13th to 16th. It was a record conference for Ceridian with over 800 customers and 1500 attendees. And as always with all vendors, it was good to see interest, engagement and energy of the Ceridian customer base.

We are taking a look at previous SuperNova winners, in advance of the 2014 SuperNova competition. The SuperNova awards are unique in the industry as they focus on how leaders and their teams overcame the odds and resistance to implement modern technologies in their respective enterprises.

And implementing technology early is one thing, using it to transform the way how business is done is the key. And the team at ARI did that, by providing insights to executives on a faster, scalable way.
