What is new and what is next in virtualization, mobility and cloud computing? If the answer to this question has a significant impact on you and your business, VMware vForum is the perfect opportunity for you to get up to speed and prepare to transform your business.
The VMware vForum 2014 will be kicking off in just a few weeks’ time with the vForum in Helsinki on May 6th. Aimed at IT professionals from all industries, each event will help you discover how to simplify your IT infrastructure, spark business transformation and develop your own individual skills and increase your personal value to your business. So – what exactly can you expect from VMware vForum 2014?.
The UK will be hosting two vForum events this year, the first taking place on the 11th of June at Wembley Stadium in London, the second on the 8th of July at Manchester Central. Each event will kick off with a keynote from Joe Baguley discussing the Software-Defined Enterprise and ‘Thriving in the Mobile-Cloud Era’. After the keynote you will be able to choose from a number of quality sessions discussing topics ranging from Cloud Operations to Virtual Workspace and the Hybrid Cloud, we’ve outlined a few of our favourites below.
- The Software-Defined Enterprise: Thriving in the Mobile-Cloud Era.
This is the keynote by VMware’s Chief Technology Officer EMEA, Joe Baguley. In the mobile-cloud era, billions of new mobile consumers will access millions of new applications and services, meaning business expectations of IT have rocketed and a fundamental change is required in the way IT operates. Discover how successful Software-Defined enterprises have reduced their time-to-market for new services by engaging with the IT function instead of bypassing it, and how VMware has enabled this transformation.
- Beyond VDI: delivering desktop resources to any device – as a Service!
How can you give end-users secure access to all their desktop applications and resources from any device, at any time? Join this session to learn how VMware Horizon simplifies and cost-effectively supports more workers across more use cases than ever before in the mobile cloud era.
- Automating your Software-Defined Data Center with vCloud Automation Center
There is no need for IT to compete with cloud vendors when it can turn them to its advantage! A key component of vCloud Suite – VMware vCloud Automation Center – lets you connect public and private clouds under IT control, and expose all services through a portal governed by usage policies. As a result, delivery of infrastructure, applications and even desktop services happens at business speed, reaching the next level of IT efficiency and reducing time to cloud value.
Additionally, keep your eyes peeled as we will shortly be updating the London and Manchester websites with news of our platinum sponsors, who will be hosting a number of thrilling presentations to keep you at the cutting edge and up to date with all new developments.
