I’ve blogged before about the power of innovation to drive business transformation, and on Thursday June 13th, I had the opportunity to test that claim at the ‘Effortless Network Workshop’
The new Brocade EMEA Innovation Centre came through with flying colours, as the quote above, from workshop attendee Frank Edwards, BMA, demonstrates.
At the workshop we were delighted to welcome delegates from BAE Systems, Fordway Solutions, BMA, Three, Avnet, Azlan, Netsumo and Ampito.
Guest speaker Richard Laval from Bradford Networks gave an engaging presentation about Network Admission Control and BYOD Campus Solutions.
Customers and partners alike were eager to learn more about Brocade’s campus networking solutions. Simon Pollard, Steve Manzanero and Steve Day from Brocade were happy to oblige, with presentations spanning Brocade HyperEdge Architectures for Campus Networks; Optimising Application and Service Delivery with Brocade Campus Solutions; and Brocade/Bradford Networks BYOD Solution. All attendees gleaned a lot from the day, and just like BMA, Stephanie Mulder of Fordway Solutions seemed very happy with the event:
“Your facilities are fantastic and I will definitely be bringing more customers to the EIC”
Dennis Nyland from BAE Systems also enjoyed his time with us, finding the workshop “very informative”. Of course, winning the prize draw for a Bose Wireless Soundlink Speaker may have influenced his enthusiasm…
Fujitsu Team Meeting
In other news, Fujitsu brought one of their teams into the EIC for their quarterly update. They were very impressed with the centre and plan to bring their customers along to share the experience.
