The most important part of the WWT HCI workshop is to give an understanding, with tangible evidence, for which technologies can best meet requirements and fit within the organization's vision and strategy. Through interactive conversations and white-boarding sessions, attendees will build a custom chart visualizing which platform(s) will be a technological fit for the identified use case(s) in the data center.
Who should attend?
We've broken down the workshop into two parts to help maximize time commitments.
Part 1: 1-2 hours
For the first part of the workshop, any stakeholder with requirements should be in attendance to ensure their voice is heard and requirements recorded. During the first hour or so, the workshop will ensure everyone in attendance is on the same page as to the definition, high level benefits and use cases of HCI.
Part 2: 6-8 hours
For this part of the workshop, attendees should be technical with a basic to high understanding of the following data center technologies:
- Compute (high)
- Hypervisor (medium)
- Storage (medium-high)
- Networking (basic)
This section requires a high level of participation from attendees. As the workshop progresses, discussions of how different features and platform functionality will weigh within the requirements gathered from Part 1 are critical to the success of the exercise.
