Notes from #HxGNLIVE Keynote

The #HxGNLIVE keynote which concluded an hour ago marked the beginning of HxGN LIVE in a unique way. Unlike normal keynotes where CEO talks about some achievements and makes exciting announcements, this keynote proceeded on a different note. Hexagon President and CEO, Ola Rollen and other divisional Presidents took turns to talk. At times the divisional Presidents even spoke to each other on stage about leveraging each other's technologies for providing better options to customers. A customer in Australia was interviewed live from the stage!

For the first time several keynotes and few sessions are being streamed live for the benefit of those who could not attend the conference in person. This is made possible through HxGN LIVE TV.
Data is the new Natural Resource
Here are the tweets which show the excitement generated during the keynote:

SSL VPN: Configuring and Using Forticlient on Ubuntu, creating a Launcher

Is your primary OS at home Linux and do you use Windows only to connect to your work PC over VPN or to attend meetings?  Do you often wish to connect to your work VPN from a Linux PC?  If your answer is 'Yes' to the above questions, I have an answer if your workplace uses Fortinet SSL VPN. Note that it's possible to connect to Fortinet and other VPNs like Cisco VPN from Linux through the inbuilt network manager by installing additional tools but this post would focus on using the standard Forticlient for accessing the resources on your work network. Obtaining Forticlient The most important thing to note w.r.t. using Forticlient for Ubuntu (or any Linux distro) is to note that the client is not publicly available for download from the official website. You will have to ask your IT department to download the client for you, in case they haven't provided it.
