Some of you may already have read it on twitter or on the news site of my employer ITQ: I have been rewarded with the End-User Computing (EUC) Champion status for 2016! Something I am really proud of and truly honored to have achieved. The last couple of years at ITQ have been a rollercoaster with this being another example.
So what is the End-User Computing Champion reward? This is the description that VMware blogged about a couple of months ago:
End-User Computing (EUC) Champions is an “Outsiders-who-are-Insiders” Expert Program designed with the help of several EUC experts in the community. Since its inception, this program has provided a great platform for the EUC expert community and VMware EUC product groups to share feedback, roadmaps and new product information through in-person meetings, networking events, industry conferences and webinars. This interaction helps ensure that VMware EUC customers get the best possible products and, additionally, helps shape the direction of VMware products and innovations.
Not everyone is cut out to be a champion, and we are exceptionally lucky to be working with a very talented set of individuals. To be part of this program, members need to not only have deep VMware product expertise, but they also need to be vocal about their knowledge. Our experts are prolific writers and speakers. They are up to date on the latest trends in the industry, have opinions about them, and love to tinker with new technology. They are respected by their peers and are respectful of others. And they are the people that everyone in the industry likes to go to for technical information about leading EUC products.
As a result of the EUC Champion 2016 award I will be traveling to both VMworld this year to participate in a meet-up with the other champions and we will have our own breakout session at VMworld US!
If you would like to meet in either Las Vegas or Barcelona, send me a DM on twitter or linked in.
