Milestone Systems hosted the largest ever regional community event on May 18-19th in Milan. The Milestone Partner Open Platform (MPOP) event brought together the Milestone ecosystem from Italy for two action packed days in Milan’s futuristic FIERA MILANO Centro Congressi Stella Polare congress center.
From Company to Community
Key focus at this year’s MPOP was the shift from an open platform company to a Milestone partner community. Milestone distributors, end users, software solution partners, camera manufacturers and storage providers were warmly welcomed.
Alberto Bruschi, Country Manager Italy, Milestone Systems, emphasized how the community focus benefits partners and customers. “By facilitating knowledge sharing we create a platform for delivering optimal customer solutions based on collective insights. We accelerate collective innovation which helps maximize the business value of video management systems for partners and our joint customers.”
He went on to announce new initiatives to further strengthen community collaboration including:
- The creation of an Advisory Board with partners and customers
- Establishment of a developer forum
- Enhancement of SDK design and better documentation of the API
- Implementation of the SDK e-learning
- Expansion of solution certification
- Introduction of co-marketing programs
- Creation of a marketplace on our web site

Throughout two exciting days technology trends, business plans and new initiatives were presented and eagerly discussed. 26 partners showcased their latest technologies and experienced how the Milestone Open Platform Community can boost the power of partnership for faster innovation and true customer focus. The new Milestone Learning & Performance Program was presented. This program is designed to build greater expertise in designing, installing, and configuring solutions that meet customer needs.
