If you missed Thursday's beta kickoff webinar, CLICK HERE AND check out the recording. It contains all the information you will need to get up and running quickly and easily.

In addition, we outlined an incentive program to show you just how much we value your help by using DataDirect Cloud. You were selected out of hundreds of applicants to be the first to try DataDirect Cloud and give us feedback. As an acknowledgement of your commitment to making this a better product we wanted to show our appreciation.

Announcing the DataDirect Cloud Beta Incentive Program! During Thursday's webinar, we outlined this exciting new incentive program:

Spend 7 hours over the next week (March 7-14) and receive a $50.00 USD Starbucks gift card

After that week, if you send us an email outlining your use case, you will receive an additional $50.00 USD Starbucks gift card.

We will tally the activity after the 14th and reach out to everyone that participated in the initiative. This is our way of saying "Thanks" for the investment of your time in DataDirect Cloud.
