Hacking will begin on April 8th for the NetIQ Cloud Manager Hack Week. We’ll be breaking out of our normal teams and collaborating with those around us – including you. Hack Week is one way we encourage innovation through experimentation around the company. This week, a wide range of folks here are taking time away from their day-to-day work to collaborate and develop ideas that they are passionate about.
Innovation is a key ingredient in that product development. To keep that innovative spirit fresh and active this next week is our annual Cloud Manager Hack Week. Our Cloud Manager engineers and development team will be building things that are outside their normal work, be given free reign to work on some challenges we are laying out to see if we can spur some innovation and inventions, and work on projects and ideas that they are most interested in.
Later this week I hope to let you in on some of the exciting projects from this Cloud Manager Hack Week.
There aren’t many rules – basically we’ll work in small teams and share our projects with the company at the end of the week. What will happen with each project will be determined once it’s complete. Some may ship immediately, others may be added to the road-map and built out in the future, and the remainder may serve as creative inspiration.
If you have an idea for one of our Cloud Manager teams add a comment below or send a tweet to @NetIQ. We’re always looking for feedback.
