2:00pm - 2:50pm - Jodi Shely, VMware Principle TAM - "Leveraging the Four Cornerstones of Resilience with TAM Insights"

"Why Focus on Resilience? Resilient organizations understand that trust is won or lost during a service interruption.  Leading organizations have an intrinsic understanding of applications and underlying infrastructure.  

We work with more than 1,600 TAM customers globally, which allows us to gain unique insights into how IT organizations respond to industry trends. This year we are focusing on four key areas; Resiliency, Security, Sustainability and Efficiency.  We will show you how to leverage out of the box features in your VMware Infrastructure to quickly identify areas of vulnerability.

Each of these areas are key to the underlying foundation of trust we build with our customers, employees and shareholders. Resiliency and Security stand out as two major areas of concern for most organizations and their customers. As the old saying goes, it takes years to build trust, but seconds to lose it. We have all witnessed the fallout associated with major outages, regardless if they are from a cybersecurity attack or hardware failure. The impact of these types of events is not limited to the moment, but can have long-term impact to revenue, customer loyalty, ability to retain or attract staff, just to name a few. The key is understanding where you are today, what are the gaps and how do you address them.

Resilience engineering forces us to look at what capabilities are present within the infrastructure before a chaotic event occurs. We are looking to share our insights in helping you to understanding your maturity in these key areas, so we can build a roadmap to help your organization weather these trying times."

3:00pm - 3:50pm - Julie Roman, VMware TAM - "Seeing the light in logs"
The world of logs might seem scary to some, but the truth is if you can search the web you can search through logs. In this session, you'll learn how you can hone your troubleshooting skills and leave up from an SR Jockey to a Root Cause Rockstar! In this session, we'll take a look at real customer cases and show you how you can leverage vRealize Log Insight to quickly identify issues and prevent them from happening. We'll also look at how vRealize Log Insight can be integrated with other VMware products to give you the complete picture and mitigate issues without having to log in!
