Hi everyone, as a member of our TAM community there are many benefits that you are afforded from health assessment, virtualization reviews, support and escalation management and so much more. One of the other benefits is getting deep technical sessions from our internal VMware experts. This week we have a session coming up that I think is important for all to join. Here are all of the details again in case you missed it and still wish to register.

 

VMware Software Manager - Managing the Lifecycle of VMware's SDDC
Wednesday, February 25, 8:00 a.m. PST

Join us for an interactive discussion on how VMware’s SDDC will be downloaded, installed, upgraded, and patched in the future.  During this session, Bob Perugini, Senior Product Manager will share VMware’s Install and Update strategy, provide you with an early preview of the products, and participate in an active discussion on the user interface, features, functionality, and priorities.
