This has to be another EMC record…April 11th 2013

Growing up in Stockholm Sweden I don’t think I ever heard the phrase “Go big or go home”. Perhaps it was somewhere along my journey in competitive tennis playing in college for the Wildcats that I became familiar with the phrase.

One of our goals is to be more relevant to our SAP customers, Ecosystem partners and internal EMCers in every conversation we have. By sponsoring and speaking at 4 different SAP related events globally in one day: April 11th, hopefully we get closer of achieving this goal. It also must be an EMC record! Perhaps even a SAP record of having a partner sponsoring and hosting SAP customer in 4 different locations (?). I need to check with my SAP marketing friends on this. Either way…Pretty cool 🙂

EMC is a sponsor and speaker at the SAP Cloud & Virtualization Week 2013 (#SAPvWeek) – April (9th-) 11th at SAP Labs in Palo Alto

EMC is a sponsor and speaker at the SAP High Tech Forum, April 11th at EMC Hopkinton, MA Briefing Center

EMC is a sponsor at the SAP Media Innovation Day April 11th in Universal City, CA

EMC is hosting customers at the SAP Week briefing event in Sydney, Australia on April 11th with speakers from SAP, EMC, VMware, VCE and Cisco

We are also passionate about our current ability to be relevant to our SAP customers around Cloud and Big Data including HANA. Last week I was fortune to hear one of Steve Lucas’ SAP keynote’s talking about SAP’s ability to help customers “innovate” and “move faster”. He also made the statement that the only way this can be achieved is to reduce the TCO on current SAP deployments in order to free up budget to deploy solutions like HANA, mobility, social solutions etc. With EMC and VCE’s current solutions portfolio, I don’t think we have ever been in a better position to help our current and future SAP customers achieve these goals and align closely with SAP’s strategy around Cloud and HANA. Take for example EMC IT’s transformation which displays incredible metrics and proof points on these topics. Check out these results published today in EMC Corporation IT Performance Report
If you attend one of the SAP events today on April 11th then you will get a preview on how we can accomplish this together!

What’s the next record we can break? Perhaps the # of days in my SAP runs better on EMC & VCE social media twitter campaign!
