Getting candid

Mehdi spoke candidly in our video about his feelings at both the IMAGINE SUMMIT Americas in Orlando and at IMAGINE SUMMIT Europe in Chantilly, France. Mehdi said he was glad he was able to participate in such a vibrant community that is building around Axway’s ecosystem and products. He also spoke about how you can apply it to your model, internal and external, and what you need to integrate from third parties.

Mehdi said he has seen Axway “changing over the last five years with many acquisitions, many product changes, new logo and branding, along with a new culture,” Mehdi said. This is what he enjoyed most about his time at IMAGINE SUMMIT. Mehdi hopes people will “take away many ideas to implement” from keynote address.
