VMware Expert Program History
This is the First VMware Expert Program on SAP. It is being held June 18-20, 2019 at VMware Corporate Headquarters Palo Alto, California. There are plans to hold another of these events in the future. If you feel you qualify, feel free to contact me.
The VMware Experts Program was started in 2013 as a collaborative effort between the Cloud Platform Business Unit, then referred to as vSphere Product Marketing team and the VMware Global Center of Excellence. The program brings together experts in a variety of applications, database and other technical fields at VMware in Palo Alto (Now globally) to meet with VMware and partner personnel from the highest-level executives to the engineers who architect the platform and write code. A variety of open discussions and exercises facilitate an intense learning environment leading to the expansion of the already broad communities of technical experts that have extensive knowledge of VMware virtualized infrastructure.
This event is the first event of the “SAP on VMware” branch of the VMware Experts Program adding to the Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and Big Data and Scientific and Engineering Workloads branches. The event will include Executive briefings from VMware Executives as well as engineers, architects and product specialists who concentrate on the areas of SAP on VMware.
