I’ve been very fortunate enough to be invited to attend the popular Tech Field Day (#SFD12) to be held in March 2017 in Silicon Valey so a quick post to share my initial thoughts & about the event itself.
Tech Field Day is a popular, invitees only, an independant IT influencer event organised and hosted by Gestalt IT (GestaltIT.com). The idea behind the event is to bring together innovative technology product vendors and independant thought leaders from around the globe with an active community contribution to share information and opinions interactively. There are various different field day events such as Tech / Storage / Cloud / Mobility / Networking / Virtualisation / Unified Communications / Wirelesss Field Day events that take place throughout the year with respective technology vendors. It’s organised by the long time leader Stephen Foskett (@SFoskett) and has always been an extremely popular event amongst the vendors as it provides an ideal opportunity to present their new products and solutions to a number of thought leaders and community influencers from around the world and get their valueable thoughts & feedback.
I’ve been wanting to attend as a delegate for a while now but as the event was an invitee only event for the delegates, I wasn’t able to just sign up and attend. However this time around, I was extremely lucky to have been invited attend the next event Storage Field Day (#SFD12) in San Jose on March 7th-10th which I’m now looking forward to.
The details around the SFD12 event that I will be attending, including the rest of the invited delegates as well as the presenting vendor details are all available here. I will aim to provide a summary outlining my thoughts on various technologies & solutions we are going to be discussing about focusing on not just their technical value but also the business value to potential customers so stay tuned…!
