See you at VMworld!!

Hope your bags are packed and you are heading towards Vegas for VMworld 2017. This year like every year if bigger and better and I am extrememly excited to be part of this game changing time in the industry. 

Just in-case you are unable to attend this year, make sure you mark your calendar for the Live General Sessions. Here is the link with more details..

If you are at the show then do not forget to catch up. I would love to have a chat with you if you are challenged in running operations and looking for solutions. One way to catch up would be through breakout sessions. This year, I am privileged to present a session with a customer and a old buddy Sudharsan S. from Cognizant about this exciting concept of running measured operations. The founder of the program is my close buddy Iwan Rahabok and you can learn more about the program on his blog. Or you can be in this room at VMworld to attend LIVE

In another session (Group Discussion), I will talk about how we help customers run production operations with vRealize Suite. This is a JAM session where we would welcome all the feedback you might have from your experiences of using the VMware vRealize Intelligent Ops Solutions. So if you have feedback for us which we can use to help create our next gen products, this is the session for you.

For our TAM (Technical Account Managed) customers, I will be available in the TAM Central in VMVillage presenting on a couple of topics. These are exclusive events for TAM customers and you need to speak to your TAM to attend these. The first one will be with Iwan. This is a 2 hour deep dive workshop which will talk about Architecting Operations in this new ERA. The learning's from this session would be applicable to your work as soon as you are back to office from VMworld :-)

Another TAM customer session would be on a topic which I cannot disclose on my blog. But if you are a TAM customer and looking for solutions to manage large scale, globally distributed cloud environments, then this is the session for you.

Session Name : Can't tell you here :-)
Location - Mandalay Bay, Level 3, Palm A
Time - Tuesday, 29th August - 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM


I will be podcasting as well with Yadin from Druva Inc. whom I recently worked with on a very cool project of creating a vTrailMap. This map can help you immensely with your jouney to the cloud :-) More details can be found by meeting Yadin in the exhibition area. You can find him on twitter. Here is his tweet about the vTrailMap
