Our true definition of success as a viable business is to enable individuals like you who have that fire in your belly to learn what we offer as self-paced labs, no matter where you live and what you speak.
Our end goal is to hand deliver Master-VMs through our subscription model so that you can self-learn to your heart’s content.
It’s always great to be in the partner engineering team guiding partners what to do and which way to go.
But at times, you yourself is at lost when it comes to producing your own deliverables namely SETs / Solutions Enablement Kits (or whatever your company calls them) because you’ll soon end up becoming dependent on other teams like technical marketing, product management, field enablement and so on.
By using the same Master-VM framework that the rest of the company uses, you can lock step and be on the same page with the rest of the teams. With this approach you can get your deliverables out the door on time and bring up partners on board in a consistent manner.
You know what it means to be in the product management, how you are expected to have all the answers all the time and how everything becomes your action item.
One of the most challenging part of being a product manager is to assimilate all the information from the engineering and then spread it within the company as well as with your customers.
With our Master-VM framework, your products no longer have to live within powerpoints or wiki pages or in webex recordings. Your entire product stack with all its uses cases can come to life by packaging them into a single Master-VM along with evaluation licenses. And that can be distributed quickly in a USB thumb drive to all the relevant teams. That way, no one has to bother you on corridors or cafeteria asking for demos or product details anymore. Just point them to its Master-VM and that will take care of everything.
Technical marketing teams are expected to churn out reference architectures and white papers like pan cakes expect, nobody knows what it takes in producing your deliverables and how much you are dependent on having your own internal labs.
One of the major challenge you often face is showcasing your product capabilities and their integration with other products within your company as well as from partners and competitors. Once you figured that out, next comes the real challenge of disseminating that information to the rest of the world.
Our Master-VM framework gives you great flexibility in packing all your findings, recommendations, configurations, documentations, video/webex recordings – all in just one single VM (we call that Master-VM). It is upon us to get that delivered to your end customer, be it internal or external. This way, we completely eliminate the challenges in either opening up your internal labs for public consumption or burn your pockets by running them on a public cloud 24/7.
As as TAM your neck is always on the line. Customers expect you to solve all their problems in a jiffy. You’ll end up becoming their sandbag taking all the blows and punches. But when it comes to training a TAM, it always seemed to be an after thought.
With all your hectic schedules and meeting up with customers face-to-face constantly, attending a full 5 day training course eventually becomes a pipe dream. You hate being dependent on someone else to help you out on the technical side of things as you never had the time to free up yourself in learning what you’re expected to know in the first place.
With our Master-VM framework, you can do your self-directed learning in your own pace. Since you are running the self-paced labs locally, you can always pause and continue your lab exercises without over lapping your work schedules. This way you can always keep up with product features and limitations first hand and deal the customers confidently.
Though Architecting heterogeneous solutions have its own challenges, the primary hurdle that many Architects face is a lack of exposure to such systems.
With Master-VM framework, we build self-paced labs anywhere between the simplest to the most complicated architectures involving multiple software/hardware components from multiple vendors. Our Master-VM approach gives great flexibility, exposure and confidence in building such complex architectural solutions.
The video lessons that come bundled with any Master-VM will save your precious time in not getting yourself lost by wandering on the net looking for clues/answers but stay laser focused on mastering the concepts quickly without any diversion.
The management wants professional services organization to be a cash cow for the company. But somehow doesn’t want to spend on the required technical training (?!) Ask them for a training and all you hear are budgets cuts, quarterly endings and cost cutting.
We understand your world. And that is why we kept all your training requirements as the fundamental corner stone while designing our Master-VM framework. You no longer need to convince your reporting chain all the way up to a VP to get the required training. All you need is your laptop, your physical server, your time commitment and the rest is on us.
In fact, for some of the self-paced labs that we have designed, we have even eliminated dependency on an internet connection! That way, you can be in hotel room in a different country altogether, but you can still spend a few hours wisely in learning the product capabilities of your choice using our Master-VM framework.
Our Master-VM framework provides you an alternate and cost-effective way of carrying your demos and proof-of-concepts with you on your customer visits which instantly become your sales tools.
Your sales cycles can be much shortened by leaving your portable servers at your customer site for them to play with your stack if needed, rather than try building sandboxes for them on Cloud and then baby sitting them.
You no longer need to burn midnight oil in preparing for your next day demo. But instead a single Master-VM can build your demos and poc’s with all the use cases that you see fit. This way you can showcase product capabilities effectively and quicker.
