About this Event

Collaboration and IT professionals, come join us on October 27-29, 2020 for the twelfth annual CollabSphere conference. This three-day conference focuses on HCL B2B application and HCL Digital Solutions technology and this year will be an online conference. Learn from your fellow IT and business professionals and share your experiences and best practices.

The global pandemic affected everyone throughout the world. Rather than an in-person conference, CollabSphere’s team have decided to host an online event for 2020. As with the 2020 theme “On the Rise Together,” the conference is bringing everyone together to learn and network. We look forward to being a part of the continued growth of the community by sharing knowledge and expanding awareness in collaboration technology.

COL111 – How having a Guides program is making HCL Connections successful within Heitkamp & Thumann Group
Femke Goedhart Jörg Rafflenbeul

A successful HCL Connections platform requires engaged users. How can Gudies support this in a medium-sized company with highly-qualified and motivated employees and lean structures? When you have multiple divisions, product groups and locations spanning three continents and multiple languages and cultures, it’s a challenge. HCL Connections was introduced into the Heitkamp & Thumann Group to support and improve collaboration. Guides (local super-users) are the main success factor that makes this possible and continuously improves it. Meet with the program managers and learn how they maintain, nurture, train and encourage this group of guides and what the challenges and successes are. Hear what lessons they have learned and what their vision is. Hopefully this will inspire you and maybe you can even become a part of it!
