GestaltIT #TechFieldDay 2, let the fun begin…


We are coming very close to GestaltIT #TechFieldDay 2 being organized in Boston, MA on the 8th and 9th of Apr 2010.

.

Over the next few days, you will see a ton of new blog posts coming out from various different sources, including invited delegates and many vendors. I do promise to provide an extensive coverage of this event on twitter and on this blog. Twitter hashtag for this event is #techfieldday

.

This is a very unique event where GestaltIT organizes a few delegates to visit a few vendors in the enterprise IT arena. During these visits, we get to hear, talk and learn about the vendor technologies, direction, future and a vision into their products and services. With a similar event already organized in Nov 2009, called the TechFieldDay 1, this is a repeat event but with a lot of success on its belt, we all look forward to the great success of TechFieldDay 2.

.

Social media is taking a new turn and that means, every non-conventional means of marketing is being tried these day using the underlying concepts of web 2.0 and social media. There is a nice post by Stu Miniman recently posted on his blog covering how blogging and other non-traditional communication means have changed the way we blossom the underlying message to the readers.

Tons of credits go to Stephen Foskett for organizing this event. Glad to be invited and being able to attend the 2nd Tech Field Day in a row. It was lots of fun last time and looking forward to this amazing event being hosted in Boston, MA.

.

It all started about a year and a half ago with blogging and then twitter and all the events that followed it. First the EMC World 2009, then Vmworld 2009, HP TechDay 2009, EMC Forums NYC 2009, GestaltIT Techfieldday 2009, HP Blades Day 2010, HP Storage Day 2010 and now the GestaltIT Techfieldday-2 2010. These are a lot of events in one year, with scheduling conflicts, office travel, personal commitments, its hard to attend each one of them, but the knowledge that is gained out of one of these events is more than one can imagine.

.

Really glad to be part of this storage / virtualization community and hope to continue this work in the future…On Twitter, follow me @storagenerve, Twitter hashtag: #TechFieldDay. You can follow (list) all TechFieldDay 2 Delegates on Twitter here.
