Five reasons to attend Illuminate 2022

5 Reasons to Attend Illuminate 2022 header

For many, the month of September signals the end of summer, the start of a new school year and the beginning of autumn. It also means it’s the season of illumination, more specifically Sumo Logic’s Illuminate user community virtual event taking place on September 13-14.

We are proud of our ever-growing community of practitioners and are excited about the dynamic lineup of training and session tracks designed to help make the world’s digital experiences reliable and secure. So whether you’re an SRE, cloud architect, or SOC manager, Illuminate has something for you to help deepen your expertise in leveraging the world’s leading SaaS analytics platform for modern cloud-native applications.

Need more reasons to register for Illuminate? Here are five.

#1: It’s all about the certs

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 eleven levels of certification from the fundamentals to topics such as Cloud SIEM, observability, security and compliance, and metrics. We are also adding a new Cloud SOAR certification and an OpenTelemetry workshop.

#2: Learn from your peers

We know there’s no better inspiration than hearing stories from the trenches. The majority of this year’s event will be delivered by our customers and partners with best practices from Acquia, Ascential, Automation Anywhere, AWS, CloudHesive, Hackerone, Infor, Knauf, Latitude Financial, Medidata, Nobl9, PagerDuty, SAP, TimebyPing, Ulta Beauty, Roku, zScaler, 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: Consume sessions how and when you want

For the first time at Illuminate, we are excited to offer our community an on-demand virtual model which enables attendees to consume content when they want, how they want. You don’t have to block your calendar for certain sessions, all you have to do is build your playlist of favorite sessions you want to catch and binge when you’re ready. In addition, we are offering even more ways to engage with other attendees and Sumo Logic experts. Join our Illuminate Slack channel, attend flash Ask-Me-Anything sessions, ask questions and share best practices with other attendees!

#4: Come with questions, leave with answers

If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Illuminate will feature direct access to our best and brightest experts 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: SkillUp

While the certifications and sessions at Illuminate will arm you with best practices, tips and tricks you can implement in your organization immediately, our annual Women of Sumo event will offer a different kind of opportunity for attendees to skillup with our panel discussion on finding inspiration and mentorship to take your career to the next level.


Excited about Illuminate 2022? Registration is now open, reserve your spot today and we look forward to seeing you online!
