Our journey to delivering truly relevant digital experiences has not been short. It reflects
nearly two decades of technological development, driven by market-inspired innovation.
The story behind the Coveo Relevance Cloud ™ originates with groundbreaking
advancements in unified indexing and enterprise search and it then moves to include
contextual relevance, cloud and content analytics, behavioral analytics, ML-powered
relevance, intelligent recommendations, unified interaction journeys, NCU, AI semantics,
and intent detection.
At each step of this journey, the goal has always been the same – to help our customers
attain the capabilities they need to capitalize on their strengths and compete with the
digital giants of the day.
This story helps demonstrate the unique nature of the position we now hold. In a world
where there is not enough time or people-power to gather stores of data and develop
intelligence capabilities anywhere near comparable to those of the digital giants, we have
the capacity to democratize applied AI. And this allows us to grant organizations of all
shapes and sizes the ability to deliver the relevant experiences that their customers not
only desire but demand.
While we certainly owe this progression to the incredible teams we’ve had at Coveo over
the years, we could not have accomplished everything that we have without our partner
community. A key factor in our success has been and will always be meaningful
collaboration with those who utilize and share our platform with their respective
communities, and we’d now like to honor our champions for the incredible contributions
they’ve made towards helping our shared customers.
Introducing the Coveo MVP Program
The Coveo MVP (Most Valuable Professional) Program is designed to provide formal
professional recognition to those that have shared their time, energy, and brilliance to
help propel our shared customers on their journeys towards relevance.
Classifying and documenting contributions by those in our community is no easy feat, but
after careful thought and consideration, we have developed six fields by which to evaluate
individuals for selection as a Coveo MVP:
- Platform Mastery
- Deployment Expertise
- Content Creation
- Thought Leadership
- Product Input
- Creative Positioning
While we will be kickstarting the nomination process for our 2021 cohort in November,
we are thrilled to share that we have selected a group of 15 Honorary MVPs to bring
attention to what exactly we will be looking for across these various categories.
