Hi all - thanks Thorsten for taking this on!

One thing that I was thinking about is getting a few companies up on stage
to explain how they are using Kantara products and services to grow and
support their business. What is valuable to them?
Because there are a few companies that are actively leveraging Kantara
artifacts as a core element of their business offerings - and others might
be able to see how that works...
