In just a matter of weeks, VMware will be on the ground in Barcelona for Gartner Symposium 2015 – the most important gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives in Europe.
At this year’s VMworld Europe, one of the key themes was around our model for IT infrastructure – One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device. At the Gartner Symposium we’ll be bringing you the insight you need to make this part of your business, and demonstrating the benefits it can truly deliver.
During the event, we’ll be in the Gartner Symposium Marketplace, where you’ll be able to drop by and learn more about how VMware’s solutions can help you make Pat Gelsinger’s five imperatives part of your IT and business strategy. You’ll also be able to learn more about the new and updated solutions announced at VMworld Europe, from Project A2 and NSX to VMware Photon and vSphere Integrated Containers.
What’s more, we’ll also have some of our top executives delivering a number of sessions across the whole event, covering a number of topics. Take a look below for more information:
