Derick St-Hilaire

Hello there! My name is Derick St-Hilaire, and I’m the Salesforce Administrator here at Devolutions. I’m one of the more experienced employees here at Devolutions, and it has been amazing to see the company and community grow over the years. My primary responsibilities include managing our Salesforce platform, and working closely with our strategic partners and customers. I also oversee the management of Devolutions Force, which is our VIP Advocate Community. Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I enjoy camping, walking my dog, playing video games, and I’m a huge movie fan — including the Star Wars franchise of course. If you would like to join Devolutions Force, or if you wish to get in touch, then you are welcome to contact me directly at dsthilaire@devolutions.net.


January Poll Question: How Did Your Projects Go in 2020 & What Are You Planning in 2021 ?

Table of Contents

IT. IS. OVER. Of course, we’re talking about the annus horribilis known as 2020. Let’s see, we had:

And then there was the hyphenated word that virtually nobody knew at the beginning of the year, but that no one will ever be able to forget: COVID-19.

Despite the pandemic and these environmental catastrophes, however, there were actually some good things that happened in 2020 as well, such as:

  • The number of pet adoptions — especially “rescue animals” from shelters — increased dramatically, as more people stuck at home realized they had some love to give a dog, cat, rabbit, or even a kangaroo (yes, really).
  • The level of support and kindness in many communities reached new heights, and nearly 3 out of 4 millennials — yes, the demographic that always gets unfairly dumped on for being selfish — have donated money during the pandemic.
  • And of course, how could we overlook the fact that in early December, the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine was given in the UK. Let’s all hope that this truly is the beginning of the end!

All in all, 2020 had its ups and (dramatic) downs — which brings us to the January poll question. There are two parts to the inaugural poll for 2021:

  • Please share how your projects went in 2020. What succeeded? What didn’t? What adjustments did you make — some because you wanted to, and others because you had to?
  • What projects do you have planned for 2021? Maybe you’re partnering with an MSP, enrolling end users in cybersecurity training, introducing passwordless authentication— or anything else significant.

Basically, for your past and pending projects, please share the good, the bad, and the ugly (which, by the way, is the theme of our latest infographic on the state of cybersecurity in SMBs — check it out here!).
