Next week is the annual VMware Partner Exchange – PEX conference for VMware partners in Las Vegas (Mandalay Bay). This is VMware’s premier partner event where partners come to learn what’s new with VMware, also to enable partners to be better equipped to position and sell/implement VMware solutions. Not to mention that this conference also gives partners access to VMware SMEs and executives!
First, I must plug my own sessions! I will be presenting in 3 sessions:
1) CI1523 – Winning Against Microsoft System Center
2) MGT1238 – Selling vCenter Operations Management in Competitive Environments
3) MGT1369 – Understanding the vCenter Operations Management Technical Differentiators in Competitive Environments
I am looking forward to meeting with the many values VMware partners as well as all my friends I’ve made within the industry over the years (you know who you are!). Also, to hear the stories from our partners on how their VMware partnership has (and will) drive more value for them and their customers.
Apart from the sessions, I will be meeting with partners and spending time on the expo floor working the VMware booth.
As for the social aspect – I will certainly be attending the “VMware PEX 2013 Unofficial Official Community Tweetup sponsored by HP Storage and Veeam” as well as enjoying Third Eye Blind on the party night.
For those who will be attending, please be sure to stop by my sessions, the booth, the tweetup – or simply send me a tweet @benscheerer.
