Changes to the vExpert 2014 program

It is that time of year again for the folks in the virtualization community, vExpert program is accepting applications for it’s 2014 class of honorees. I have been humbled to be selected for the last 2 years,and hopefully will make it three years in a row.

There are a couple notable changes to the program this year versus years past.


1. Quarterly application process – The application process is now open all year long! Every quarter they will review a nominations and award vExpert status accordingly. So if you don’t get it in the 1st qtr then try the 2nd and so on.

2. Fast Track for current vExperts –  They have streamlined the application if you are currently a vExpert, which is a great thing!

Paths to vExpert

There are three paths you can apply to become a vExpert.

  • Evangelist Path
  • Customer Path
  • VPN – VMware Partner Path

I love the vExpert community, I’m wondering though how logistically the quarter nominations will have an impact on the program from a work load stand point to those involved. And why exactly go into an open quarterly process?  This is definitely something to keep an eye on going forward.

So be sure to apply and hopefully we make the cut this year!
