And just like that, we've officially wrapped DigitalCPX 2020! We had a blast working with our customers, partners, and community to make this event a success and are grateful to all involved.
Our second week of DigitalCPX included thought-provoking keynotes, insightful conversations with our solutions leads and customers, and the announcement of new technology and go-to-market partnership with Google Cloud! We also shared even more on-demand sessions, meetups, and training opportunities. If you missed DigitalCPX in real time, don't worry! Content will be available for replay at www.anaplan.com/cpx.
