Keeping EMC field resources up to date on the latest EMC/MSFT integration and road maps is key to joint continued success. Staying hands on is even more important, after all, using the infrastructure is the best way to provide proper positioning and gaining maximum value for our customers.
In order to "stay sharp", EMC conducts an annual summit for all EMC Microsoft technical resources globally. This includes field and corporate resources. This summit is conducted on the Microsoft Campus and has been, and will continue to be a key event in the relationship. This year was no exception. The material is largely delivered by Microsoft speakers who were educating EMC specialists not only on the latest and greatest applications and tools but also on future technologies such as Hyper-V 3.0, SQL 2012 and Systems Center 2012. In addition to the latest roadmaps and EMC integration a special lab night was hosted to allow anyone, including yours truly, to get hands on. That included all of the EMC hardware and software integration. You can expect lots of future episodes of inside the partnership based on these integration points.
While at the Summit I talked to Adrian Simays about the launch of the EMC mSpecialist community and what it means moving into an exciting 2012. The content from the summit can be found here posted most of the content on the Everything Microsoft at EMC Community.
Thanks for watching. (stay tuned for a special hole-in-one at the end...)
