C2C Monthly Recap: September 2022

By C2C Team | March 21, 2023

Each month, C2C shares the latest news from the team and the best highlights from all of you here in the community. Read on for the most essential C2C updates from September 2022.


Following a summer break, the C2C EMEA team jumped right back into the fray of in-person events, rejoining old friends in Paris for more customer stories and networking as well as expanding the C2C landscape to Zurich, Switzerland. The stories shared at these events are valuable across many industry solutions being created with Google Cloud technology, but we also have a focus on having fun!



At 2Gather: Zurich, C2C's first in-person event in the Alps region, the main topics of the day were the cloud implementation options Roche used to accelerate their get-to-market and the advantages of Google Cloud Database services. Google Cloud Principal architect Andreas Heidekr�ger ( @aheidekrueger ) moderated a fireside chat featuring two representatives of customer F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG: Analytics Chapter lead Tomislav Ilicic ( @Ilicict ) and Program Manager Dominik Berroth ( @Dominik ). Data Analytics Customer Engineer Nic Gibson ( @nicgibson ) followed up with a focused look at Database Services. As always, the networking reception following the program opened the field for numerous customer-to-customer connections. Google Cloud Customer Engineer Dominik Steiner ( @DominikSteiner ) joined several customers in attendance for exploratory discussions breaking down various challenges faced and overcome. "It was a great possibility to give customers a platform," he said.


Just a few days after breaking ground in Zurich, the C2C team was pleased as always to return to Paris for a 2Gather event led again by C2C France team leads Guillaume Blaquiere ( @guillaume blaquiere ), Group Data Architect at Carrefour, and Antoine Castex ( @antoine.castex ), Group Data Architect at L'Oreal. Customer speakers included Cyrille Doumenq of Renault Digital and Adeline Villette of Decathlon Technology, and ADEO Tech Leader Matthieu Cornillon also led a session exploring the company's partnership with C2C partner Aiven to accelerate its native cloud strategy. "The event was very good. What I particularly liked was the 'C' part of the 'C2C' and listening to the experience of true practitioners talking to other practitioners," said Jonathan Jowett ( @jjowett ), Director of Strategic Alliances at Redis EMEA. "The challenge now is to get the community of end customers to grow and gain momentum," he added. "From my perspective, this would be a great forum to try and encourage our customers to come to and present at too."

Of course, the beauty of everything we do is having one central place for all Google Cloud users to come together to solve problems, connect and re-connect, and get access to everything from C2C. We strive to continually improve the experience of our online community, so here's the latest on what we've delivered.


Events Finder

The world is big, as is Google Cloud. So for our global community of Google Cloud users, we want to help navigate the sea of information and opportunities available. When you browse through C2C events, try one (or both) of these new features:

  • Filter by event type to find the best setting - virtual or in-person - for you.
  • Filter by tags including Google cloud solution area and other hot topics, when available, based on upcoming events.
  • Change the view between list and calendar.


Para (l)a Gente

Speaking of global reach: C2C is live in Latin America! From our summer activities in S�o Paulo to our first Spanish-language event last week, we're doing everything we can to build dedicated groups to support your conversations and community where ever you are.


Connect with ISVs

One other new feature on the Connect page is a filter for groups led by independent software vendors (ISVs). The ISV groups give you a space to bring your questions and challenges directly to our partners, including Aiven, Automation Anywhere, NetApp, and Palo Alto Networks.

If you are part of an ISV and are interested in partnering with C2C to lead a group, reach out to marcy.young@c2cglobal.com.
