5 reasons to attend Illuminate

The countdown is on to our 5th annual Illuminate user conference September 28-29, 2021! This year we are once again offering a virtual experience to keep everyone healthy and safe. And while we continue to miss seeing all of our customers and partners in person, we are really excited about the dynamic lineup of training and session tracks designed to help power your modern business, and accelerate digital transformation and customer experiences. So whether you’re looking for SRE, cloud architect, or SOC manager, Illuminate has something for you to help deepen your expertise. Need more reasons to register for Illuminate? Here’s five.

#1: Get certified

Our popular multi-level certification program provides users with the knowledge, skills and competencies to harness the power of machine data analytics and maximize investments in the Sumo Logic platform. This year we will be offering six levels of certification from the fundamentals to topics such as Cloud SIEM, observability, security and compliance, and metrics. Reserve your spot early, these sessions fill up fast!

#2: Hear stories from the trenches

We know there’s no better inspiration than hearing stories from the trenches. This year’s event will feature customer stories and best practices from AirBnb, Alaska Airlines, Code42,, North American Bancard, Pitney Bowes, SAP, Thoughtworks, Tokio Marine, UC Davis, Vizient and more who will talk about how they leveraged Sumo Logic to increase productivity, deliver the best customer experiences and power their digital business with observability and security.

#3: Master your data with our new Master Class

For the first time, Illuminate will feature a master class designed for experienced Sumo Logic users. The class will give users the opportunity to participate in a smaller, detailed technical session that explores advanced techniques and allows them to extract the most value from the Sumo Logic platform for their business.

#4 Get expert advice from our technical A-team

If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Illuminate will feature direct access to expert advice from Sumo Logic’s product and technical teams where you can see demos, get ideas for dashboards and queries, and see the latest Sumo Logic innovations.

#5 Get Inspired

The certifications and sessions at Illuminate will inspire you with best practices, tips and tricks you can implement in your organization immediately. In addition, our annual Women of Sumo event will offer a different kind of inspiration with our panel discussion on “Women in STEM: Empowering the Next Generation.” Join us for a stellar lineup of female technology leaders who will share practical advice for how women can advance their careers in STEM.
