Hi everyone, and welcome to the last edition of the VMware TAM Source Newsletter. This week we have a very interesting TAM related blog post of you to read. As a TAM we are mostly generalist’s knowing all there is at a very broad level as well as some subject matter expertise. What happens if you want a specific skill for your organization.
