Digital fluent partners, friends and evangelists… Thousands of industry-leading VMware partners and customers will be joining us for four days of innovation in Barcelona on 11-14 September for VMworld 2017 Europe. We would love you to join us and many of our partners from our Systems Integrator and Systems Outsourcer (SISO) programme.
IBM Cloud and Pivotal are prime examples of how VMware can work collaboratively to develop solutions that enable successful digital transformations across the globe, and we look forward to welcoming them and all our partners to Barcelona – kicking off with Partner Exchange on Monday 14th September.
VMworld 2017 Europe is set to be our biggest and best yet and will provide a chance to hear about our latest innovations in cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology. Every year we not only reflect on how valued and integral our global SISO partners are in making innovation happen, but also look forward to the year ahead and talk through our vision for future collaborative products and solutions.
For a full breakdown of keynotes and sessions, don’t forget to check out the VMworld 2017 Europe content catalog. But what opportunities are on offer at VMworld 2017 Europe specifically for SISO partners who want to communicate our latest innovations to their customers, and also those wanting to learn more about VMware’s successful partnerships with SISOs?
Here are my top picks of must-attend SISO sessions and talks:
VMware + SISO: Accelerating Digital Transformations through Joint Technology Leadership & Compelling GTM Partnership
Monday, Sep 11, 4:00pm – 5:00pm
Global SISO VP David Parsons will highlight recent accomplishments and best practices of SISO partners using VMware technology as a growth enabler, and provide updates on SISO GTM and enablement programs, including news about VMware partnerships with AWS, IBM Cloud and Pivotal. VMware CTO, Global Field and Industry, Chris Wolf, will also outline technology investments and market changes creating new opportunities for our SISO partners in the years ahead.
Business Growth Series – Cloud Computing Partner Exchange Keynote
Monday, Sep 11th, 11.30am
With VMware, partners are uniquely positioned to deliver a common platform to manage multiple clouds and provide customers with freedom and control. Hear from industry experts on how you can navigate the multi-cloud world with ease.
We will also be hosting a private session with Joe Baguley (VP, Chief Technology Officer – EMEA) for our SISO partner technical leaders to have an open discussion about our announcements. It’s a great opportunity to deep-dive into these announcements, so our SISO partners can leave VMworld with a deeper understanding of how we can collaboratively help our customers.
Technical roundtable sessions with our product managers will also be running throughout the even, giving you the opportunity to have SISO-specific discussions with our experts.
I look forward to hopefully seeing you all at VMworld 2017 Europe!
