StorIT Distribution, one of the sponsors of EMC Forum 2013, found it to be successful with its reseller partners and customers attending in large numbers. The complimentary one-day conference for IT professionals, to enhance their businesses by exploring cloud further and leveraging Big Data analytics among other key aspects, featured interactive sessions, presentations and hands-on demos. EMC experts and partners explored real-world case studies to impart the latest trends and developments in the space.
Patricia Florissi, Vice President and Global Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for EMC Sales and Mark Thurmond, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales for RSA, the Security Division of EMC, were the keynote speakers at the event, which was held at the Atlantis Hotel in Palm Jumeirah on September 10, 2013.
The event also saw the launch of the next generation EMC VNX unified storage systems, a special feature being its power of flash to address the high performance, low latency of virtualised applications.
“We were happy to be part of the EMC Forum, which was an opportunity for our reseller partners and customers to understand how EMC Cloud solutions could transform their IT and business. The forum also enabled participants to connect and network with their peers from across the region. Renowned global speakers shared their local and international insights, case studies and surveys on businesses that are approaching Big Data, IT transformation and technology skills. The event also discussed exciting new opportunities for partners, EMC’s vision and strategy for 2014, and its Cloud, Big Data, and Trust initiatives,” says Ranjith Kaippada, EMC sales specialist at StorIT.
