VMWorld Daily Recap – August 25, 2014

Oliver Roll, VP of Global Corporate Communications at VMWare, sets the stage for this week’s events at VMworld 2014 in San Francisco, California.

Welcome to VMworld 2014! This year’s conference≠ was an absolute blast to put together.

Over the next few days, there are more than 500 sessions and 800 speakers on the docket, and as always, we’ve more than a couple of surprises up our sleeve. The VMworld Party last year was a gala to remember and for 2014, we’re taking it a step further. Microbrews and acrobats, anyone?

As many of you have no doubt already noticed, the Moscone Center is rather large and the Content Catalog is somewhat extensive. We all know curation is the next big thing in IT, so as the week progresses, check back here for my personal VMworld highlights.

† Hang Space & Solutions Exchange†

†Situated next to the General Session theater, Hang Space serves as VMworld’s social media nerve center. If you’re looking to network with bloggers, experts, executives and fellow VMworld attendees, make a point of stopping by. If nothing else, there’ll also be jumbo screen TVs and beverages.

Solutions Exchange is your destination for Sponsor and Exhibitor booths. Network with company reps, check out some demos and attend engaging theater presentations—just be sure to bring plenty of business cards and a swag bag!

General Session

CEO Pat Gelsinger and CMO Robin Matlock are headlining today’s general session with some big-picture insights into how a liquid, services-led world demands a brave new model of IT. Curious to hear how software-defined everything is disrupting enterprise IT and reinventing the data center? Well, Pat’s eager to tell you.

Bill Fathers will also be on hand to articulate our vision and strategy for the Hybrid Cloud. Finally, President and COO Carl Eschenbach will take the stage with some amazing VMware customers to discuss how software-defined and Hybrid solutions have transformed their businesses.

Register here to watch the live stream of Monday and Tuesday’s general sessions.

VMworld Mobile App

We’ve redesigned the VMworld mobile app this year and it’s better than ever. The new interface provides access to the day’s highlights, and social media integration lets users easily share session information.

Agendas are also available at-a-glance, and don’t miss the official VMworld Game! Earn points and climb the leaderboard by attending sessions, scanning QR codes at various events and completing surveys. Download the app here.
