Wrapping Up 2021

Wrapping Up 2021

We hope you have a long list of success stories and learnings to reflect on as we close out 2021. And like us, you’re looking forward to a well-deserved break!

This year has again been disruptive. We realise that we rarely have complete control over significant issues. But the way we interact with each other as a community, the extra effort every day, adds up to create our best path forward.

It’s worth taking a second to think about people who are doing more than expected, more than they have to do.

We’re filled with gratitude for an incredible system integrator community. Who figured out how to pivot quickly, serving our customers in new and powerful ways. Resilient customers who quietly do what they said they would do. Unseen heroes who continue innovating while protecting the jobs of their teams. We’re grateful for access to information and technology that was unavailable just 30 years ago. Allowing choices, a path to short-term value, and long-term thinking and excellence.

Here are some of our highlights and valuable learnings from 2021:

Element8 will be closed from 28 December 2021. Set and ready to start on 3 January 2022. Thank you for being a part of our community. As Tiny Dragon said to Big Panda, the company is more important than the journey or the destination.

Have a relaxing festive season, and stay safe!
