eZassi shared the iCommerce (Innovation Commerce) vision for all to see at FEI 2015.

The 2015 Front End of Innovation Conference at the Boston World Trade Center & Seaport, held from May 18-20, 2015, featured an impressive lineup of innovators and practitioners from around the world. This well attended conference challenged the way companies think, touting a roster of keynote speakers including Seth Godin, Steve Blank, and Tom Kelley and eZassi’s very own CEO Peter von Dyck.

On day one of the conference, after Merck’s Wim Vandenhouweele presentation, eZassi presented “TRUST, FEAR, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY | How the vision of safe and secure social collaboration is not only for the far-sighted” to a full house. A charismatic Peter von Dyck spoke about how companies can most effectively approach online portals that automatically deliver organized data while protecting themselves from intellectual property risks in their open innovation programs.

The presentation was well received and produced many great questions from the audience about smart portals, safe social collaboration and a better understanding of transforming confidential information into non- confidential data to enable freedom to operate for all concerned. In addition to the presentation, eZassi had a modest booth with a disruptive twist offering to preview a short “Who we are” in an interactive virtual reality experience that was out of this world. “Meeting industry peers was great but watching them try the eZassi story on a VR Oculus was fantastic!” said eZassi Director of Marketing Jennifer de Robles. “Using the oculus at this show really gave us the opportunity for our audience to see for themselves that we are a disruptive market solution that can transform their open innovation vision into reality.”
