VMware is creating a Global independent VMUG
There was a press release today that VMware is going to be creating a Global independent VMUG. This new user group will be customer led and driven. It is targeted for launch in June and a steering committee will be announced in the coming weeks. You can see the full release here.
I am excited to share with our User Group members that VMware is supporting the establishment of an independent, global customer-led, customer-driven VMware User Group (VMUG), to be launched in June 2010. Through an independent global VMUG, we believe we strengthen our collective VMware and VMUG value proposition with expanded collaboration, member programs, and benefits.
As a VMware User Group Member, the new independent VMUG will enable you to:
- Tap into new VMUG member benefits and programs, such as Special Interest Groups, webinars, and VMware technical education offerings
- Increase your value to your organization by becoming the recognized VMware subject matter expert through knowledge and contacts gained through VMUG
- Become part of a global, collective customer voice, impacting VMware products/services
One of the most exciting aspects of an independent VMUG organization is that VMUG will be led by VMware customers—your peers. The VMUG Steering Committee has been charged with providing strategic direction and leading the formation of an independent, global VMUG—ensuring long-term value for VMUG members
