Hello EMC Elect 2016 Class, and welcome to our kickoff CrowdChat! Congratulations to all. Wanted to open the conversation with how will 2016 be different for EMC Elect?
Roy Mikes
Please explain how this will be different
Mark Browne
in many ways #EMCElect is going back to its roots this year,
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
@DathBrun What does that mean? Going back to its roots? Please expound.
Rob Steele
I'm excited to see what the DELL + EMC opportunity brings as well.
Mark Browne
its well known that EMC is on a journey to merge with Dell. And in that regard the Elect will be chronicling that journey for our community
Henrik Wagner
I am interested to see how #EMCElect can "reach" further into EMC Federation companies
Mark Browne
we are doing new things. We are building out the Tech Select podcast brought to you by the EMC Elect members
Henrik Wagner
@DathBrun What about @EMCWorld? Can can we expect
Mark Browne
work is being down to have regular episodes beyond the usual conference coverage
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
@DathBrun Yes, and we are all embarking on that journey with you whether we are EMC employees, or in my case a key strategic Partner - thta being SAP. We partner with all - EMC, Virtustream, VMW and Dell.
Mark Browne
And at #EMCWorld we are planning a big show.
Roy Mikes
@DathBrun any sneak previews?
Karsten Bott
@DathBrun hope we can all get there
sam_lucido
What a great year for social! Finding fun topics to discuss is going to great!
Mark Browne
The EMC Elect lounge will be going through some cool changes too. and we are revamping that to accomodate our broadening community
Jason Brown
I'm excited to learn about and help champion the EMC / Dell merger!
Mark Browne
Back to our roots, is more about the fun social and deep geek tech conversations. Elect is a recognition program, but its emphasis is on community
Karsten Bott
will be at #ciscolive ... finished some Demos for #rexray with scaleio
Karsten Bott
anybody played with #rexray so far ?
Mark Browne
as well as the big things in motion for EMC World we will have some cool tracks for the Elect to follow our launches in 2016. There will be a lot this year!
Jason Brown
@sddc_guy I've had a briefing on it from Josh Bernstein but have not played with it.
Mark Browne
we have introduced Slack as a community tool for conversation amongst current Elect and Alumni
Karsten Bott
@FelixNU98 you have to :-) pretty cool stug, and gr( things to com in 2016
Henrik Wagner
Let's look at larger presence of #EMCElect at #SAPPHIRENOW in May collaborating w @SAPMentors ! cc @dathbrun
Jason Brown
@sddc_guy Absolutely, Docker containers on @EMCScaleIO is a great P3 use case!
Rob Koper
More sneak previews as Roy mentioned and more meetings on a regular basis would be nice
Rob Koper
slack looks good!
Mark Browne
EMC World will be a big event, particularly for the Elect with some cool excursions, exclusive briefings and speaking opportunities
Karsten Bott
@FelixNU98 if you are on VMware Workstation, i got it pretty much automated ..for everything else, there is som vagrant stuff .. blog out by tonite :-)
Jason Brown
@DathBrun Nice, I hope I'll be able to step away from my duties to attend!
Suhela Dighe
The #EMCelect have always been instrumental to drive online conversation at all events. Long may the programme continue!!
Mark Browne
@henrikwagner73 well thatsright up against EMCWorld so it will be interesting to pull off :)
Mark Browne
So members of the EMC Elect, pipe and share whats awesome about the program and what you plan for 2016 through the program?
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
@DathBrun This year SAPPHIRE is 10 days later - so shouldn't be a problem to pull off!
Mark Browne
My frequent flyer miles are going to be doing well this year :)
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
@DathBrun I think it would be great to connect EMCElect with SAPMentors - @henrikwagner73 and I have already had many conversations - they will all be at Sapphire - let me know how I can help! I plan to be at Sapphire as well.
Mark Browne
Who's attending Cisco Live in Berlin in two weeks?
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
Here is more info on SAP SAPPHIRE 2016 - I expect to see the EMC Elect Community there! http://events.sap.co...
Mark Browne
I'll be there with a few Elect members covering the conference and getting Elect things underway
Mark Browne
as well as SAP Saphire, EMC World and Cisco Live, we'll have a prescence at VMWorld US & EU
Mark Browne
and we're planning a lot more online engagement, with regular podcasts, lcrowd chats, hangouts
Mark Browne
and don't be surprised to hear more Elect peeps on other podcasts, including their own.
Mark Browne
and expect to see more Elect members putting together their own get togethers, fro a few around a pizza to bigger meetings with like minded individuals
Karsten Bott
@DathBrun we just Need emcworld approved :-)
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
@DathBrun I look forward to seeing you at Sapphire!
Rob Steele
I'm curious as to what EMC technologies everyone will be focusing on this year.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
the marching orders are out, via David Goulden himself! http://reflectionsbl...
Matt Cowger
Personally I'm all over the new < redacted > and < redacted > appliances coming that I can't talk about until later :(
Henrik Wagner
It's all about "The Cloud" including @virtustream ;-)
Jason Brown
ScaleIO & VxRack
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@mcowger give it a couple of weeks...
Stephan Michard
ideed - there are so many interesting topics comming up
Ian Anderson
I will be expanding to cover more of the Data Protection products, not just Avamar.
Ian Anderson
NetWorker, Data Domain, RecoverPoint, ProtectPoint
Jason Brown
Maybe some ECS too, which would be going back to my roots of Centera / Atmos!
Ian Anderson
EHC is pulling in AVE automation so probably something there. Our vRealize Data Protection plug-in.
Suhela Dighe
Lots of interesting launches, but there's definitely a focus on "back to basics".
sam_lucido
Big part of my focus will be hyperconverged systems http://marketrealist...
Rob Steele
I will have a heavy focus on converged and hyperconverged this year, going to be a fun time
Jason Brown
@sam_lucido HCI will be a big focus for many, lots to talk about as the last year has shown!
Roy Mikes
HCI will be booming! According to IDC this market grows with 68% by 2019
Stephan Michard
not to forget bimodal IT
David Ring
Blocks Racks Appliances :)
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@suzyspaatz back to the basics: every #cloud runs on infrastructure!
Rob Steele
@vGazza exactly, so why not run it on HCI and be done with it
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
there is an incredible opportunity for HCI without a question
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
but having portfolio is a powerful thing. Blocks, Racks & Appliances. CI/HCI in many ways.
Jason Brown
Any other #ETD folks in EMC Elect?
Sylvie Otten (Sollod
In 2016 we'll be focusing on business outcomes with technologies like SAP HANA, SAP HANA Cloud Platform, S/4 HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, Ariba, Concur, etc to help companies run better and improve people's lives.
