Rebecca Ray, CSA Research #IMUG408 talkExecutives interviewed by CSA Research believe strongly that supporting international markets is essential for achieving major growth targets over the next few years. However, until all of their teams globalize their business processes, our research shows that they – and their functional managers – will find it difficult to "be global" by serving local audiences in a consistent, streamlined and cost-efficient manner.

Delivering a winning customer experience across markets involves so much more than translation. Based on qualitative and quantitative primary research, Rebecca Ray will share the new Globalization Maturity Model designed to guide all levels of an organization in how to achieve efficient business process globalization.

About the speaker:

Rebecca Ray is a senior analyst at CSA Research, focusing on global digital transformation, enterprise globalization, localization maturity, social media, global product development, crowdsourcing, transcreation, and internationalization.

She previously managed worldwide product design, localization, and marketing for IBM, Netscape Communications, Remedy Systems, Symantec, and Sun Microsystems. Rebecca has lived and worked in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, is fluent in English, French, and Spanish, and is proficient in Portuguese and Turkish.

Total Hands-Off Fully-Automated Product Globalization
Hosted by Adobe in San Jose, CA

Video: new page
Photos: Coming soon!

Come learn about open source automation solutions developed at VMware that revolutionize the pace of software globalization to be practically "hands-off"!

The open source Singleton i18n framework streamlines and simplifies globalization with microservices architecture. This has sparked some great questions across the industry about standardization, security, performance, high-availability, and more. The speakers will address these topics, and discuss opportunities for collaboration through open source. They will also answer lingering questions the technology, dig deeper into its functionality, and share consumer successes.

We will also take an in-depth look at the open source SonarQube static code analysis rulesets. We´ll talk about how to make the rulesets work in your environment, how to interpret their results, and how best to leverage this hands-off globalization realm.

Craig Cummings is a staff consultant and globalization evangelist for VMware, a UTC Vice Chair for the Unicode Consortium, and INCITS/LS Chair for character sets and internationalization.
