ESX's New Making It Count Program Launches Directory of Experts
|By Business Wire
|June 16, 2014 09:25 PM EDT
While many industry events provide resources, ESX
has spent the past twelve months focused on how to make those resources
count. Through its new customer care initiative, ESX is providing
attendees with free tools and advice to activate successful business
Today it announced the launch of its new Trusted Advisors Directory
(TAD) — a tool for ESX attendees and exhibitors. This indexed listing of
subject matter experts with contact information for over 100 of the
industry’s finest leaders and mentors, will help connect the ESX
Community via different business and tech topics.
The tool enables attendees to quickly locate the expertise they are
looking for by subject, and then make contact with experts for direct
and candid one-on-one consultations. All those listed in the directory
will be in attendance at the show June 23-26 in Nashville, TN.
The online TAD is available now at http://www.ESXweb.com/TAD
as a pre-show tool to help plan meetings onsite, and the print version
will be distributed at ESX to all attendees as a permanent reference
The TAD is part of the Making It Count Program, a revolutionary
enhancement to tradeshow customer care. Making It Count uses guides and
outreach to provide tailored advice and reminders on how to get the most
out of ESX before, during, and after the show, and leverage the
investment in ESX to ultimately make real change in an attendee’s
business. The signature sponsor of Making It Count is boutique wholesale
monitoring company, Security Partners, LLC.
John Galante, President of AE
Ventures, producers of ESX and the program architects for Making It
Count, explains the value of the tool. “Most tradeshows just focus on
getting you there, then they drop you at the door and say ‘good luck,
now you’re on your own.’ But what happens after the show is just as
important – the follow-up and follow through. Having a tool like the TAD
not only makes finding the right people easier at ESX, but it provides a
take-away resource that can be consulted after the show. That’s when you
are implementing the new ideas you got at ESX – and that’s often when
you need an advisor the most.”
“We’re proud to be sponsoring the ESX Making It Count program, because
it’s all about results for its customers, a concept we keep foremost in
our own operations,” said Michael Bodnar, president of Security
Partners, LLC., the signature sponsor of Making It Count.

Count program, please contact Virginia Williams at [email protected]

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
