It’s a wrap – VMware vForum London 2014

“The best way to predict your future is to create it” – these wise words from Abe Lincoln and Joe Baguley resonated around Wembley last Wednesday at VMware vForum London – what an inspiring day!

We had a great time meeting with so many customers and partners and and hopefully we’ll have helped you and your business understand how to amplify the possibilities of your IT infrastructure and move your business into the fast lane.

To kick the day off, Joe Baguley gave his exciting keynote on the Software-Defined Enterprise and Thriving in the Mobile-Cloud Era. There was a great turn-out, with over 1300 delegates  attending to hear Joe’s thoughts on Software-Defined: “If you have to buy hardware to get a Software-Defined product, it’s not Software-Defined!”. Following his speech the crowd split to enjoy sessions ranging from Cloud Operations to Virtual Workspace, followed by topical sessions from our Platinum sponsors, including EMC’s great discussion of bridging the gap between old and new IT to achieve efficiency, choice and control in the Software-Defined Enterprise.

Fast lane winner - smallIn the exhibition area we had queues of people lining up to play our recently launched Fast Lane Racer game and try their hand at winning a remote control Audi R8. We had lots of entrants, but in the end there could only be one winner – Piers Riley from Hitachi Data Solutions. As you can see below, Piers was very happy with his prize and his time of 00:34:19 on track 2.

We loved seeing all your tweets and messages on social media, and we’ve included a few of our favourites below. We particularly enjoyed the doodles from Barry Coombs, vExpert and blogger, which you can see in part below and in full on his blog Virtualised Reality.

If you missed vForum London, all is not lost! In 25 days, vForum Manchester is taking place at Manchester Central, you can register here. If you need something to satisfy your VMware craving in the run up to VMworld Europe in October this year, you could also try out our Fast Lane Racer game. Do you have what it takes to top the leaderboard and win some fantastic prizes?
