This year’s vForum is being held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour on November 14 and 15. The keynote speaker will be Dr Steve Herrod, VMware chief technology officer. Steve was right there at the foundation of VMware and collaborated with its founders on innovations leading up to the company’s debut. Now, with more than a decade with VMware under his belt, he drives our technology strategy across the entire product portfolio, leading the delivery of innovative products which push technology limits, and are easy to use and accessible.
Steve’s vForum 2012 presentation will focus on IT transformation as the enabler of business transformation, examining the forces affecting today’s business and how IT is now in a position to capitalise on those changes. The session will provide insight into the new infrastructure and outline how ‘on demand IT’ will pave the way for the new generation of applications to be delivered to any device, anywhere, anytime.
There’ll also be a second keynote session on the first day of vForum, which will outline how VMware is helping customers build the datacenter of tomorrow: The Software Defined Datacenter. On the second day, the keynote will focus on Empowering the Workforce of Tomorrow, delivering insight into how organisations can capitalise on big data applications and mobile devices to allow organisations to leap-frog their competition.
But it’s not just about the keynotes – vForum 2012 will also deliver in-depth training and hands-on experience in all the IT infrastructure areas that matter in relation to virtualisation and cloud computing. The conference offers 75+ sessions and labs on everything from virtualising enterprise applications and managing desktops as a service to security and compliance. There’s also a lot about private, public and hybrid clouds. All this will be organised into six major tracks. Hands-on labs, technical deep dives, architect bootcamps, formal certification … it will all be available.
About 80 sponsors and exhibitors will be displaying and explaining all the latest solutions in vForum’s Solutions Exchange, which is a great way to separate hype from reality so organisations can make the best possible purchase decisions. And vForum is a great chance to network and compare notes with other professionals – contacts that attendees will be able to draw on for advice and best practice in future.
You can even meet up with our Knowledge Experts in the Customer Central area to get access to technical and troubleshooting tips. Got a tough question or need some advice? Bring your queries along and get the best in the business to answer them. And of course, at the end of the day, there’s the VMware User Group and the Evening Hall Crawl for those more informal hang-outs.

If you are looking to spend less time and money supporting underlying IT infrastructure and more time on areas that yield business and competitive value, then be sure to join us for education, collaboration and networking. The business impact of your vForum participation, including increased simplicity, agility and cost efficiency, makes this one of the best IT investments your company will make all year.
To help your boss understand the importance of sending you to vForum, as well as the return on investment it will bring, we’ve put together a justification email (see this Word doc) for you to use.
