Earlier this week Wells Fargo hosted the autumn edition of the Solace New York User Group meeting at their offices in midtown Manhattan. This meeting was unusual: in addition to the New York location, Wells Fargo also live-streamed the presentations to a remote group of users in Charlotte, North Carolina, which effectively meant that two Solace user groups were happening at the same time!

To start off the evening, Well Fargo’s David Bloom and Subrata Chatterjee kicked off with a lively discussion on their specific use case with Solace technology. Deutsche Bank’s Matthew Mezger and Thomas Kunnumpurath then talked about their deployments of Solace in their global environments. Shawn McAllister wrapped up with a presentation on all the really cool things we’re working on now.

To end the meeting, we took our users to Michael Jordan’s restaurant at Grand Central Station, where we had a combination mini-celebration/post-user group networking hour. The mini-celebration was in honor of our recent launch of the new Solace logo and Open Data Movement. The delicious food and drinks, in combination with the majestic surroundings of the train station, made for a very memorable evening.

Thank you for joining us and see you next time!
