The 2015 Clearwater User Conference brought together more than 200 members of the Clearwater community for a day of education, workshops, and networking. From the interactive sessions—with co-presenters from Repwest Insurance, Autodesk, Yahoo!, Xilinx, and more—to the lively reception, the Clearwater User Conference was abuzz with education and collaboration.
Conference-goers customized their schedule across 16 distinct sessions, within four focused tracks. Analytics session attendees learned about proactive risk analytics, while the Audit Support session mapped out key ways to get auditors the right data, right when they need it. The Benchmarking Success round-table encouraged attendees to compare evolving strategies and best practices, while the Treasury Best Practices panel dug-deep into how treasury professionals manage the challenges of today’s complex investment environment.
Clearwater best practices workshops also ran throughout the day, with sessions for both Clearwater users just new to the system, and for Clearwater power-users ready to explore the next level of customizations.
After the sessions, many attendees found their Clearwater account manager to say hello, or talked with session panelists and industry colleagues about overcoming universal obstacles. With analysts, vice presidents, treasury directors, CFOs, and a variety of other accounting, investment, and treasury professionals in attendance, networking was in full-swing. Even after the full day of activities, the lively post-conference mingling filled the reception hall and spilled onto the patio, where members of the Clearwater community—from the newly implemented to the long-established—enjoyed refreshments in the warm Santa Clara evening.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year, for the 2016 Clearwater User Conference, to be held at the Clearwater headquarters in beautiful downtown Boise!
