Couldn’t make VMworld Barcelona? We’ve got you covered
If you couldn’t make it to VMworld this year, don’t worry as you can watch a lot of the main keynotes online from this years VMworld, or going back as far as 2014 here: https://videos.vmworld.com/global/2018
You should also check out VMware’s “What’s New at VMworld 2018” webpage for a summary of all of the announcements on Cloud, Data Center, Networking and Security, Digital Workspace, IOT and Edge Computing here: https://www.vmware.com/products/whats-new.html?
I had the pleasure of attending my first VMworld as an employee of VMware, working in the TAM Customer Central (TCC) area at VMworld Barcelona 2018. You can just about make me out on the left hand side of the ‘O’ in that pic. For those of you that don’t know, the TCC area is an exclusive area for TAM customers to relax, take in some sessions with SME’s, have a coffee with an SME, and just get away from the hustle and bustle, with thousands attending the event. If you are a TAM customer, I’d highly recommend it as you can interact with the SME’s and pose questions about your environment and experiences with VMware products. Your TAM can also follow up with SME’s after the event, getting you slides or helping to facilitate a remote or onsite session with an SME.
I was also given access to tweet as the @VMwareTAM twitter account while at VMworld so if you don’t already follow us, please do. TAM customer or not, you will get a really good insight into VMware by following this account. I did feel the pressure of tweeting from an official VMware twitter account, with great power comes great responsibility and all that, reading each of my tweets several times before posting, but it was a great experience and something I’d like to do again.
As a TAM I work closely with my customers, and this year I was very fortunate to have one of my customers up on stage on TAM Day in front of 800+ people, talking about Business Transformation and the challenges this can bring which was a great session. I also had a chance to chat to Brian Madden after his session and hear his thoughts on Workspace One, and caught fellow team mate Nigel Venables vSAN presentation, so it was an excellent experience. If you can, you should try to make the next one in Las Vegas or Barcelona. You will likely see one of us from this blog working there so don’t be shy, do say hi 🙂
