From the editors virtual desk
Hi everyone, my week was consumed with a number of very worthwhile activities. First up I worked with my customers on a training plan and certification matrix. This is such a worthwhile exercise and allows the organisation to plan not only when their employees might be away on training but also ensure that each employee is getting the training they require and are able to become certified should they choose.
I also spent time working through our roadmaps as I am soon to present these to my customers. I find this such a great exercise and it always makes me pretty excited to learn about our upcoming technology and then get to present to my customers.
We are also nearing the most fantastic event on the VMware calendar, VMworld in San Francisco. I will do my best to bring you as much news about this event prior to, during and after as I possibly can.
I wish you a fantastic week and look forward to speaking to you next week. Please of course feel free to get in touch with me anytime.
