It's that time of year again--Thanksgiving, when thoughts turn to turkey, travel, family, and possibly some early shopping. Most importantly, it's a time for gratitude, to reflect on the things, events, conditions, and people for whom we are grateful. Here are four groups of people we are thankful for this year (and always).
As John Sundberg says, great products are built by great teams. And great teams are built with great people. This is where it all starts: with the developers who create our products to the consultants who implement them, the experts who support them, the team that markets and sells them, and the people who hold the entire operation together. We're thankful for each and every Kinetic Data employee.
We're grateful to be working with more than 300 of the best organizations in the world ...from all kinds of different areas—service providers, educational systems, government agencies, and enterprises across a range of industries. Hundreds of companies are benefiting from our efforts - and we think that is just "Turkeyiffic.” Everything we do is designed to provide them with new capabilities, reduce service fulfillment costs, improve service delivery speed, and simplify request management for their employees. Some recent customer stories we’ve highlighted include CareTech Solutions, Nordstrom, and Fairfax County Public Schools.
We're thankful for our channel partners—including Acuity, AttivaSoft, Column Technologies, Maryville Technologies, Meritide, QMX, Rapid Technologies, and RightStar Systems—who extend our capabilities as a company. They provide additional services, products, industry expertise, and local presence to our customers. They've enabled us to grow faster and do more as a company. We're grateful for their efforts, and everything they bring to the table.
We're thankful for the thought leaders and other engaging professionals we're connected to on social networks. We're grateful for the opportunity to share ideas, learn from them, and (hopefully) share some of our knowledge about enterprise request management and practical business process automation in return. Happy Thanksgiving to all, including Rob England (The IT Skeptic), Roy Atkinson at HDI, Jeff Brooks at Gartner, Jeff Kaplan at THINKstrategies, Eveline Oehrlich at Forrester Research, Josh Greenbaum at Enterprise Applications Consulting, Christian Harris at Business Computing World, Rob Preston at InformationWeek, Doug McClure, Sramana Mitra of 1M/1M, Dan Costa at PC Magazine, and Kevin Kelly at Wired.
And of course we're thankful for the readers of this blog. Here's wishing all of you a happy Thanksgiving holiday.
