Wayne’s ABBYY Technology Summit 2017 Review

By Optiform Blogger, November 20, 2017


Sun, Sea, and the ABBYY Technology Summit

This year, Wayne Michael went out to the ABBYY Technology Summit. The event, also known as ATS, is an annual one that brings the ABBYY Partner Community together to offer education and digital transformation inspiration ABBYY style.

The company goes all out at this event by choosing one of the greatest hotels in the city as the venue and brings digital transformation expert speakers in the house to present and educate.

Last year’s Keynote was given by Sandy Kemsley. Check out our recap from last year. Sandy mentioned companies like Lemonade Insurance who is digitally transforming the insurance industry by approving and paying claims at industry record-breaking speeds.

Not only to does ABBYY organize knowledgeable speakers for ATS, but they also use this annual event as an opportunity to allow developers to update their certifications that keep their company’s partner status current. It is an all around great three day event.

Here is the link to the official site in case you are interested in learning more.
