Although the Visual Data Group team went to Qonnections this year, I stayed to keep the business running—being busy is a good thing. Yes, I was sad because Qonnections is a phenomenal event. I wanted to be able to visit with all who are involved in Social Media, it’s always great to match the names with faces. For a QlikView partner it is a must-attend event! But if you can’t go, what is the next best thing?
As last year, QlikView encouraged its partners to communicate with them regarding the conference with the hash tag #Qonnections. It was a very successful tool! I have been able to follow my QlikView friends throughout the conference. It’s been fun and informative watching the feed, viewing the event photos and being able to participate in the conversation.
Visual Data Group’s technology partner Industrial Code Box ,who developed QVSource, created a live feed for Qonnections that shows all the conference Twitter activities. This is a very popular dashboard! I think we have all be competing to see who can be the top #Qonnections Tweeter. Torbjorn Ungvall, (@Ungvall) Senior Business Discovery Manager at Advectas AB, is in the lead. I think it is because he is the BI Rockstar!
The Qonnections 2012 on Twitter QVSource dashboard is no substitution for being at the conferene itself but at least I can say I was there in spirit! No doubt… I will be there next year to see all those folks in person. Thank you Industrial Code Box and my QlikView Social Media Friends.
