Earlier this month I did a webinar with Nick at 451. He does a great job summarizing all the digital hoopla going around and I finish up with, predictably, why and how Pivotal can help out there, along with a few customer examples. Check it out!
Hey, sometimes a Johnny Leadgen PDF has some useful info in it. This PDF from BrightTalk (a webinar hosting company that, in my experience, is the best all around) goes over some tips on promoting your webinar:
- “The ideal promotional campaign spans about 4 weeks prior to the live event, with a minimum suggested promotion time of about 2.5 weeks.”
And for each social hole:
“[U]sing it as a way to escape for a bit.” That’s the one.
There’s some other, mostly obvious, but good to reminded of stuff in the PDF.
A webinar we recently did with Holger and Brian Gregory. It turned out well, esp. the discussion part.
The talk-track being: 21% of people are doing something beyond kicking the tired, though just ~6% doing anything in production.
(Will post link to recording once it’s up, or sign-up to see it on Dec 1st!)
The recording of my webinar on greenfield cloud projects is up. It’s based on the first part of my series on getting a good cloud strategy in place and executing it. There’s two more webinars coming up, on working with legacy applications and IT department transformation.
Here’s the slides if you want those.
The gist of this series is my collection of advice on getting your cloud strategy right, mostly for large organizations. It starts with defining why you’d care (custom written software can now be used as a core competitive advantage, like never before), what the goals are (getting good at custom software development and delivery), and then gives advice across three different phases (greenfield, legacy, and organization transformation), or parts of the “maturity cycle” (a phrase I didn’t really use in the series).
I was on a webinar last week with Flexiant and Brinkster. Both of those outfits are “cloud suppliers,” helping other companies run clouds. So, I laid out 451’s data around growth and opportunity in that market, and then we had a discussion amongst the three parties. It was fun!
Behind the scenes of a webinar: tracking timing as planned and actual.
Earlier today I gave a webinar about Docker Orchestration, what it is as far as I can tell and what the requirements are. Check out the recording, and the slides as well. This was done with CloudSoft who’s been doing all sorts of interesting things in the space.
(It’s silent for the first 30 seconds or so, so just scrub ahead.)
