Hi everyone, a quick update on the newsletter and content. A few questions on how often the newsletter is sent. We try and get a newsletter out every 2 weeks unless an event is on such as VMworld for example, in which case we try for a weekly update or as appropriate. Sometimes we are forced to delay a newsletter so it may have a slightly irregular cadence but we will always do our best to get one to you as often as is possible.

Another question we are asked is on content and contributions. Anyone is able to contribute to the newsletter. We prefer pointers to a specific blog post or a specific blogger that we have missed and will always do our best, as appropriate to evaluate and include in the next newsletter, so please feel free to send us any content suggestions anytime.

This week I would like to draw your attention to the updated Skyline features. If you are not running Skyline, please take a look, discuss with your TAM/Account Team/Support Team and consider its use in your organization as we are constantly adding more features and improvements.

I wish you all a fantastic week ahead.

Virtually Yours
