The health and wellbeing of our customers, partners, colleagues, and communities are of the utmost importance to SUSE. In light of the growing concern around COVID-19, and as a precautionary measure, we have decided to transform SUSECON 2020 into SUSECON Digital 2020, a virtual event.
With SUSECON Digital 2020, we are reimagining how we engage and interact with our attendees, while delivering best-in-class content virtually. Our team is currently coming up with new and creative ways to connect our attendees with keynotes, content sessions, and “discuss-with-an-expert” calls with SUSE leaders. The launch date of SUSECON Digital 2020 will be announced shortly, so please stay tuned for more information. For more details, please refer to our SUSECON FAQ.
I would like to thank everyone who has spent so much time preparing for an in-person SUSECON 2020. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed, and we are working to showcase as much of your content as possible within a virtual environment.
As a company, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely. Our actions and policies continue to be guided by the World Health Organization and local country guidelines. Out of an abundance of caution, we have taken additional steps to protect our employees and to help reduce the spread of this virus:
- We have asked all employees to halt international travel, and to reduce non-essential domestic business travel.
- In addition, we have asked employees who are feeling unwell to stay at home, and have shared information on how to prevent the spread of the virus.
- We have also instituted work from home policies across serious outbreak areas, including China, Italy, and South Korea.
- We will continue to monitor the situation closely and are working across the company to ensure every employee has a way to work remotely as needed.
SUSE is proud to be a global company, and we will continue to collaborate and innovate with our customers, partners, colleagues, and communities in remote work environments during this time. Thank you for your understanding as we do our part to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our greater SUSE ecosystem.
I look forward to engaging with all of you at SUSECON Digital 2020.
