A blog would not be complete this time of year without plugging one’s own VMworld sessions, so here it goes!…

I am incredibly excited to be a part of 3 sessions that were selected for VMworld 2015 Breakouts.  The recurring theme here should be of no surprise!

I joined forces with VMware transformation advocate and guru, Brad Wolfe, to deliver a must-attend session for anyone who has struggled breaking through legacy silos and fiefdoms.
