Hello Vision attendees!


I'm the lucky person who gets to work with customers on next generation technology.  My current project is investigating the values desired in a converged data management stack.  What the heck is a converged data management stack?  Well, I've done a lot of research and so I have some ideas, but I need your help to direct me, particularly when it comes to prioritization of those desired values.  


The immediate ask is that vision attendees interested in helping me should go to the link provided below and sign up (using your corporate email address) to attend one of my five one-hour session and tell me what you want me to build to better serve you.  But I'm also interested in getting you involved in the project on a more permanent basis so you can provide ongoing feedback as we continue to develop the plan and then ultimately the offering.  


I'll need you to fill out an NDA prior to coming in the room, but who hasn't had to do that before?  I'll help you with that.


If you're asking yourself if you'd be the right candidate, see the list of experience I'm interested in you having some of:

- storage

- backup

- archiving

- clustering

- data security

- cloud data management

- eDiscovery

- regulatory requirements


And just so you're aware, I'm not gonna be talking about what features this thing will have, I'm going to be concentrating on having the small groups tell me what VALUES you'd like it to have and what matters to both you and your org.  In other words, what jobs do you want it to do for you.
