In early September Andrew Manby gave an interview to the DNUG focus group. So far, many know him because of his role in Domino and Notes. Even as Doc Brown, he may have been remembered by some.
In his new role as Head of Digital Solution Product Management, Andrew is responsible for the entire portfolio of HCL Digital Solutions. “Welcome to Connections” was the thought of the focus group Connections and so they interviewed him. Andreas Weinbrecht interviewed him, with the support of Martti Garden and Jörg Rafflenbeul. It was about him as a person – “Who is Andrew Manby?” – as well as about his positioning of HCL Connections and its future.
His goal when he once arrives in heaven is to hear “Well Done! You played full out.”. This is more than a motto. He and his team will continue to bring the HCL platforms together. This will, as he says himself, not all be done in one year. Team, that is what Andrew lives, emphasises and embodies. The proven Connections Team, consisting of the two product managers René Schimmer and Adam Gartenberg and the Technical Lead André Hagemeier. Andrew describes himself as an “agent provocateur having everything under one umbrella”.
This is in keeping with the fact that he now also identifies with the name “Chief Integration Office”, which one of our members has been calling for a long time.
“Interview well done! You started to play full out Andrew Manby. More to come on October 6th during #dnug47online” we would like to give him and his team the opportunity to play with us. If you want to know more live and at first hand, you should definitely register and participate in the second part of #dnug47online Connections on October 6th. Then Andrew Manby and André Hagemeier will be there live. Link to registration October 6th
