So the article I wrote a few months ago for MTI Times/MTI Bytes was shorten and submitted by our marketing team to Tech Radar Pro as part of an agreement to submit several articles regarding MTI’s insight of the IT Industry….. after what has seem like several months, my article has finally been published on their website! Yay…. ^_^
Funny thing is during the time between me submitting the article and TRP publishing it online VMware have rebranded vCenter Operations Manager as vRealize Operations… lol… =P
So the article is now a bit out-of-date…. =)
Anyways, you can find it here: http://www.techradar.com/news/software/business-software/what-next-for-virtualisation-in-midmarket-companies–1270546
Suffice to say that this is my only claim to fame within my IT career (so far)! =)
On another note, MTI have been invited to become a Premier Partner with VMware, which is a great honour as there are only a select few companies in the UK who have the highest Solution Provider partner status with VMware!
Interesting to see small-little MTI listed alongside the big-hitters like CC, SCC, Softcat, Kelway, Insight, etc….
To be honest, there are quite a number of bigger companies in the UK who are only Enterprise Partners, so it goes to show how much exposure within VMware we have gained in order to be bestowed with a Premier status!
I guess it’s just rewards for the amount of effort myself and my team have put into driving the VMware message to our customers and driving up our VMware business!
Although the downside to all this is that as Premier Partners we need to hold more VMware competencies, which means more training and certifications to do! >_<”
At last count MTI has achieved 6 out of 9 VMware competencies which is pretty good going!
Finally MTI’s VMworld update session will be held on Thursday 20th November 2014, our marketing team is just finalising the central London venue as I post this entry!
Hope to see you there!
