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]

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan.
I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs.
Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
