What is a CAB?:
CAB is Short for Customer Advisory Board.
A meeting between Micro Focus Customers and various departments within Micro Focus. This usually consists of the support team, product manager, R&D team and other customer advocates.
The meetings are usually 2 days long with an opportunity on the second day for one to one personal meetings.
The CAB events are highly interactive collaboration between Micro Focus and it’s customers to help drive the future of the product, build a more personal relationship and also to provide additional value on the maintenance plans paid to Miro Focus.
Why have a CAB?
To often product decisions can be made in a bubble and without clear customer direction, Micro Focus wants clear customer direction on product strategy.
Benefit of meeting with many customers vs individual trips. Plus, customers love hearing from other customers as opposed to the product vendor.
CAB allows for PM, Dev, Support and CAM’s to interact in a more intimate setting rather than over email or web meetings.
Better insight and understanding about how your products are being used in the market place.
Customers get to present their deployment of the product and the benefits it brings to their org.
Plus a host of other benefits including swag bags of branded merchandise, offsite dinners and Micro Focus executives (VP level) will be in attendance.
