Frequently asked questions

Why should I join these sessions?

The Connected Insights series is all about helping our customers do more with connected data visualization. They’re free, concise and expert-led sessions addressing specific topics, so it’s a great opportunity to learn something new.

But it’s also your chance to give direct feedback to us – on our products, roadmaps or any other issues you want to discuss.

Who should attend these sessions?

Anyone who designs, builds and deploys connected data visualization applications. Product Managers, UX/UI designers, front-end developers and commercial leads are all welcome.

Some technical sessions are better suited to developers. See the ‘who should attend this session?’ information on the individual event listings for details.

Are the sessions open to non-customers?

Sorry, no. The Connected Insights series is exclusive to Cambridge Intelligence customers only.

If you’re not a customer but would like to be involved, get in touch with our team. We might be able to schedule a separate session with you.

Where will the online sessions take place?

We’ll use our online events platform, Livestorm. You can join the meetings from any browser – there’s no need to download anything. Learn more about Livestorm’s technical requirements

I can’t make the time, are the sessions recorded?

To encourage free-flowing conversation, we don’t plan to share Connected Insights session recordings. Instead, we’d encourage you to join the live meetings and get the full experience!

If that isn’t possible, we’re happy to run a specific session for you and your team. Get in touch if you’d like to arrange a one-on-one briefing.

What’s happened to CDVC?

Connected Insights is the evolution of CDVC. These sessions combine the elements our CDVC members valued most – just with a more varied agenda and a more concise format.

We hope to bring back face-to-face meetings soon. If you think we should visit your city, let us know.
