VMworld: Innovation at the Solutions Exchange
If you wandered through the halls of the congress complex you’ve probably also seen the Solutions Exchange.
At the Solutions Exchange more than 125 exhibitors are showing their products or vision for the future. Some of these exhibitors are the ones you probably already know, like VMware, EMC, Cisco, Dell. HP. These exhibitors have a lot to show you. There is a lot of innovation going on right now.
There are however exhibitors that aren’t that well-known. Most of their booths are smaller and are place at the far edge of the Solutions Exchange. They too have a lot of innovation going on, but it is easy to miss.
When you visited the Solutions Exchange already and didn’t visit these exhibitors, I think it would be a good idea to make second trip to the Solutions Exchange, but this time visit these smaller booths. Talk to the people and get a demo of their products, but a lot of ideas and innovation has come (and will come I think) from these people.
If you didn’t visit the Solutions Exchange yet, I strongly advice you to go and meet the vendors behind the products you might be using already and start your visit with the booths at the far end of the hall.
The Solutions Exchange is open from 10.30 till 16.00.
