June 15th Presentation to the Rocky Mountain Chapter SCIP (Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals)

This month I get the great opportunity to present to the local Rocky Mountain chapter ologof SCIP. I am excited to share my experiences in high-tech including successes, fails and even yet to be solved challenges while managing competitive marketing for the silicon software leader, VMware, Inc.

I do not only plan to share my experiences, but rather share a practice in competitive marketing that has developed from both business necessity to learnings along the way from seasoned CI experts, including those from SCIP!

In the fast-paced nature of high-tech software, every day is a new day to learn along with new challenges to be solved. However, balancing resources with the needs of the business in a way that constantly proves value back to the business is at the center a successful competitive marketing practice.  During this session, I will also share my experience with both communicating to management, but also measuring the success of our effort towards the overall goals of my business

Meeting Title & Abstract:

Riding the Wave of a Disruptive Technology Innovator: Keeping Pace with Change through Progressive “World Class” Competitive Marketing

During the past 6 years, Silicon Valley pioneer, VMware has had to define itself from a market dominating technology disruptor in computer visualization to a highly competitive leader in cloud technologies. Hear Ben Scheerer’s story about building a CI practice from a small fledgling group to hyper growth as one of VMware’s largest contributors to its over $7B in annual revenue. He will share his successes and challenges along the way. Ben is generously hosting at his office.  This meeting is complimentary and open to all.

Automating Virtualization & Cloud Management:…

Automation tools meant to facilitate application management may get you more—or less—than you bargained for, particularly as your organization matures along its software-defined journey.
