What #CommunityLIVE has in common with blizzards on Mt. Kilimanjaro

Somewhere around 18,000 feet, a blizzard smashed into us. Quickly, things started to go awry. The cold and wind somehow combined forces and shattered the lenses on Liz’s glasses. Then, the wind snatched the cap to my large water bottle right out of my hands, whisking it away into oblivion. The bottle was full, so I had to drink as much as I could before offering it to others.

The wind whipped back and forth, sending snow in circles. Meanwhile, I felt a ripple of pain shoot across my chest and back again.

“Chris,” I yelled into the wind in the direction of the doctor from the UK. “I think I’m having a heart attack!”

He leaned in and yelled back, “So you want to ruin my day too?”

Turns out, laughter is the best medicine.

Useless water bottles and false myocardial infarctions aside, not being able to see was the most difficult challenge as we made our final push to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You simply can’t move forward when you don’t know where you’re going.

That’s why it was so very wonderful to have some top-notch guides with us.

Get help climbing the mountain

If you haven’t been to CommunityLIVE recently, maybe you’re somewhere up on your own mountain and can’t see where you’re going. So maybe it’s time to find a guide. A trusted expert who has gone through what you’re experiencing.

If it’s something irregular, like a blizzard, they have the experience finding the right path in the face of that adversity.

Or maybe you’ve been so busy climbing, you haven’t been able to see how OnBase has evolved into an enterprise information platform. Or how Hyland has evolved, now offering many new solutions including, but of course not limited to, ShareBase for secure file sharing, case management software, and The Hyland Cloud, our online document management platform.

There’s a lot to keep your eye on.

How these solutions help you get to the top

But all these solutions wouldn’t mean anything if they didn’t help people do their jobs. To get them to the top of the mountain. So if you want to work smarter, or your job is to help people in your organization work smarter, CommunityLIVE is a great place to learn how. We’ll have hundreds of expert guides waiting to show you the way.

At CommunityLIVE, we’ll demonstrate how:

And that’s just for starters.

Register now to get the early-bird rate. Let’s get to the summit together at CommunityLIVE this September.

We’ll be in Vegas, so there won’t be any blizzards. I checked.
