Dear [First Name],
As you know, we are looking to spend less time and money supporting underlying IT infrastructure andmore time on areas that yield business and competitive value. For that reason, I’m proposing that you send me to VMworld 2012, taking place August 27 – 30 in San Francisco.
Here are a few waysthis investment will pay off for [company name]:
• I get in-depth training and hands-on experience in all the IT infrastructure areas that matter to us in relation to virtualization and cloudcomputing. The conference offers 300+ sessions and labs on everything from virtualizing enterprise applications and managing desktops as a service to security and compliance. There’s also a lot aboutprivate, public and hybrid clouds, so we can fully explore our options.
• I’ll see all the latest solutions side-by-side in the Solutions Exchange—which will have about 250 sponsors and exhibitors.This is a great way to separate hype from reality so we can make the best possible purchase decisions.
• I’ll have a chance to talk with industry experts about how to achieve our top IT priorities.• I’ll be able to network and compare notes with other professionals while making contacts we can draw on for advice and best practices for months to come.
All VMworld sessions are postedonline after the event, so I can continue my education throughout the year and share the knowledge I’ve gained with the rest of the team.
