According to the countdown clock, as of this writing, we're about 9 days and 15 hours away from the launch of the new Simpana 10 software platform. As reported by Chris Mellor over at El Reg, Simpana 10 will ship with more than 20 million lines of code. Simpana 10 will offer more than 300 new features and upgrades in data and information management and represents the sweat equity of hundreds of people across our company. The team has spent 2.5 years working on this software and they're eager to show it to you, so I guess I could wait a few more days.
I'm also waiting for our inaugural Data Management Summit. Summit sounds very inspirational doesn't it, ascending to new heights and all that. In full disclosure, we're patterning the event off tech field days and thinkamajams you may have heard about. They are awesome events in their own right and I'm proud to have been associated with them and the bright minds behind them. But no one event fits all. Somebody gets excluded—if you're a vendor, you can't be a delegate for some things. If you're not on Twitter, you're not part of others. And if your everyday job doesn't fit into a neat category, well...
We're going to try to solve all that. Since we at CommVault like to integrate multiple functions, content types and capabilities into one platform, we felt it was appropriate to unite different representatives of the data management community, including IT leaders, solutions providers, system integrators, bloggers, industry analysts, and members of the media. We've learned a few things over the years and we're creating an itinerary for the Summit that we hope will be educational, thought-provoking, and yes, inspirational. It's all part of what we do here at Solving Forward headquarters.
The Data Management Summit is hosted by CommVault and it will lead off our #Simpana10 event in NYC starting at 11 a.m. ET, on Monday, February 25, 2013. The panel of forward thinkers will be co-moderated by Rachel Dines of Forrester @RachelDines and Dave Russell of Gartner @Gartner_inc, who will steer conversations in the direction of the following topics:
BYOD means a lot to different people. We'll talk devices for sure, but I have a feeling there's going to be a bit of "bring your own discussion" from the group of distinguished data management debaters:
They'll be joined by two CommVault data management experts: Brian Brockway, VP of product management, and Jeff Echols, senior director of product marketing and business development @jeffbechols.
