Accelerate Conference

Accelerate 2016 Sessions: Intermediate

By     AUGUST 16, 2016

One of the requests we received following last year's Accelerate was to include presentations from both intermediate and advanced users. This year we designed each customer breakout slot (multiple speakers presenting at once, giving you the chance to choose the session that best fits your interests) to include at least one of each.

If you're considering Fusion Lifecycle or Connect, or are in the early phases of implementation, here are just a few suggested customer sessions you can check out.
