If you’ve attended or promoted Symantec Vision in the past, a few things will feel familiar in 2014. Vision continues as Symantec’s flagship conference for enterprise and commercial customers and partners. It’s still being held in sunny springtime Las Vegas (May 5-8). And once again, we’re expecting people from around the world to gather for information and insights into the latest Symantec offerings.

But the big news isn’t about what’s staying the same—it’s about what’s changing.  As Symantec has transformed into a market-led, customer focused organization, Vision has transformed right along with it—from a strictly technical user conference into a premiere thought leadership and networking event. That means this year, even more of our customers and partners can look forward to a broader, more personalized and hands-on Vision experience. This includes:

I would very much like to know when more information will be coming out about what is available in the Endpoint Management Track.  More specifically, I am interested in the ITMS and Service Desk platforms and what tracks will be available for this.  The Vision site does not appear to have any information that shows focus on the old "Altiris" platform in any way.  This makes it very difficult for me to determine if Vision is right for our organization this year.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Tuesday night expo hall reception featured the F.I.R.S.T. Robotics Team comprised of local youth who have an affinity for technology. The mission of the program is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

The team reached the Semi-Finals with the robot they built that launches Frisbees. The kids showcased their robot on the expo floor and even let some of the attendees drive the robot which was a huge success with Vision’s functional IT crowd. In addition to showing off their robot, the kids spent the evening telling attendees about F.I.R.S.T. Robotics, and many attendees were excited to go home and tell their own children about the program.

Stephen Gillett and his family were in attendance, and presented...

As part of Symantec’s strategy to produce more environmentally responsible events, this year the Symantec event team worked with the MGM Grand and other suppliers to reduce our waste footprint. Key initial successes include:

  • 45% of all waste will be recycled by the MGM Grand
  • 100% of organic food waste will be composted, and over 60% of Expo waste will be diverted from landfill
  • Over 60% of the materials used to build and brand The Expo are made from more sustainable materials (carpet, booths, signage)

  • All plates and cups are reusable or compostable

The Connect team is having a busy week at Vision conference. We're sponsoring the charging stations and have had lots of great opportunities to meet our community members and introduce customers to Connect. We also had a great design session with our Trusted Advisors, who are a group of dedicated customers and partners. Here's TA Tony Sterling, working the lock at the charging station.


If you're attending the conference, please stop by one of the two charging stations, and introduce yourself - we usually recognize Connect user IDs - everyone knows ohzone, but come meet the person behind the avatar!
