Meeting the Inflectra Community in London

This week we had the pleasure of holding our inaugural user summits in several key cities in Europe. We had events in London, Zürich, and Mannheim, with customers coming from across the UK, Switzerland, Germany, and the Czech Republic. We met lots of fantastic customers, had great conversations and got lots of valuable feedback on the development roadmaps for our products. In this article we will present some of the ideas and feedback from our event in London.

London, GB - March 20th

Our first user summit was in London, held in the Chancery Lane area of the city, nestling amongst the storied Inns of Court where the greatest legal minds in England practice:

We had prepared a warm welcome for our attendees, with gift bags containing Inflectra merchandise including a custom tote bag, orange notebook, Inflectra pen, Cadbury Mini Easter Eggs and a copy of the product roadmaps for SpiraTeam, Rapise and KronoDesk.

It was a great opportunity to meet with customers, discuss the plans for our products and get real-time feedback on the proposed features for the next versions of SpiraTeam and Rapise.

The attendees enjoyed the open and collegiate atmosphere, with the ability to look at the new features coming in SpiraTeam 5.2 and Rapise 5.1 and ask questions. One of the key questions was whether we should focus on the planning functionality for SpiraTeam 5.3 vs. additional testing functionality. We also had a chance to showcase the new scriptless test automation technology available in Rapise 5.1.

Finally, our partners at Exgence had a great opportunity to demonstrate their new Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine that they have created as an extension to SpiraTeam to deep-mine the data in SpiraTeam to find relationships and missing connections between information.

What Did We Learn?

We received the following feedback from our users in London:

  • Add support for pinned instant messages
  • Templated workflows that can be applied across multiple projects
  • Freeform tagging in addition to custom properties
  • Ability to save view of pages and share with team members

The group was excited to be part of the Inflectra community and suggested that in 2018 we make the event a full-day event starting in the morning so that we can cover more topics and have time over lunch to have more open discussions.
