@ciscoDC – Preparing for VMworld 2011 – Carb Loading

Thanks for all the cards, letters, tweets and Facebook updates you sent us about “your freaked out Social Media lead” yesterday. We’re happy to report that everything is ok. In typical Cisco fashion, we regrouped, got innovative and came up with some unique ways to deliver all the knowledge, expertise and fun that we plan to have at VMworld 2011. And surprisingly, we were able to make this video just a mere 24 hours later….

So everything’s done. The experts are ready to answer your questions. All the events are planned and ready to get started on Sunday. We hope to see all of your out there in the Cisco Booth (#700).

@ciscoDC – Social Media all over VMworld 2011

I’m excited to be part of the group of dedicated bloggers, vloggers, and tweeters from the Cisco Data Center marketing team at my first VMworld ever. I think events like this are the best way to get a real sense of the industry across the breadth of operators, engineers, decision makers, vendors, and analysts. There are more people I’d like to meet and catch up with than I think is even possible in just four days. Our social media guru, Amy Lewis, asked me to make a video about it. [I meant VMworld 2011 when I said VMworld 21, really.]

Our team will have “roving reporters” speaking to people of all stripes about what they’re interested in, what they’re learning, what sessions they’ve found useful, what kinds of problems they’re solving, and the technology on display. We’ll also be covering some of the tweetups and events that our team is running during the show:

@ciscoDC – Preparing for VMworld 2011 – Calling Dr.Tweeter

On Monday we showed you the preparation. On Tuesday we showed you the execution model. We thought things were under control, but when you have so much going on at a huge event, sometimes the pressure starts to take it’s toll. Luckily we have great teamwork within the Cisco Data Center team and we were able to spot the signs early.

@ciscoDC – Preparing for VMworld 2011 – The Gameplan

Yesterday, we went behind the scenes and introduced you to our preparation for VMworld 2011. But preparation only is only a hope for great execution. Great execution requires a gameplan that can address every possible scenario, emphasizes strengths and attempts to minimize any weaknesses.

In today’s behind-the-scenes preparation for VMworld, we look at “The Gameplan” to bring the best of knowledge, learning and fun to the Cisco booth (#700) at the show.

@ciscoDC – Preparing for VMworld 2011 – Intense Workouts

Less than a week from today, VMworld 2011 will be in full motion, bringing together  20,000 IT professionals looking to learn how to bring together Virtualization, Cloud Computing, and new Applications to improve their IT environment and ultimately their businesses. As a Diamond Sponsor, Cisco will obviously have a huge presence all around the show. Super Sessions, Podcasts, Live Demos, Tweetups, Ask the Experts events, Hands-On Labs, and lots of fun things in the Cisco booth (#700). If you’re attending VMworld, you’ll get to see the byproduct of all the hard work and efforts to bring knowledge to these IT professionals and Cisco customers.

But this year we thought it would also be fun to bring you a day-by-day, behind-the-scenes look at how all of this is coming together.
