Data Fabrics Boot Camp – Europe Sessions

I am pleased to announce that we are hosting a 2 day Data Fabrics boot camp for presales engineers at the Brentford (London) office on October 25th-26th and in our Frankfurt office on November 2nd-3rd.

UK Session – REGISTER HERE (Internal Dell EMC only)

Frankfurt Session – REGISTER HERE (Internal Dell EMC only)

The goal is to accelerate Dell EMC SE’s capabilities in these new Data Fabrics use cases and prepare them to more autonomously run technical selling campaigns with our customers and partners.

Ideally, attendees are either legacy Dell or legacy EMC SEs from core and specialty who have limited experience with either Splunk or Hadoop and want to learn more.  If you consider yourself and expert in either technology, then the course is probably not right for you.

Throughout each day, we will progress from higher level use case and business driver discussions to deep, hands on technical learnings on how these technologies work and how to build Dell EMC solutions to meet customer demands.  There will be pre-work to make sure we maximize our time together…and these sessions are not exhaustive.  Rather, they are intended to impart a large amount of knowledge, but also spark the curiosity of the attendees to pursue more learning upon completion.

  • Qualifying and technical help picking the right Dell EMC platforms for Hadoop opportunities.
  • Guidance on solution architecture to build a config for Hadoop.
  • Best practices for SEs trying to win deals.
  • Hands on experience installing a Hadoop demo environment – bring your presales laptops!

Day 2 – Splunk…Rinse and repeat!

  • Clear use cases for Splunk and how to talk to customers about it.
  • Technical understanding of Splunk and it’s broad integrations as a Data Fabric.
  • Qualifying and technical help picking the right Dell EMC platforms for Splunk opportunities.

Prerequisites:

Assessment:

There will be a formal assessment testing process through Dell EMC Education services so that each participant received credit for attending this formal course.  Additionally, we will have practice case studies each day to help make sure these best practices taught here are well understood.

It will be a fun couple of days and I look forward to seeing you all there!

Your friend,
