ESX's New Making It Count Program Launches Directory of Experts

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 practices.

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 manual.

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.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
