I heard some chat about where people work, and where they pretend to work on Twitter and I thought I would mention where I work. I am a Product Manager at DataGravity. Two of us – Steve Kearns, and I, are the PMs for a secret product. It is great fun working with engineers and bringing customer understanding to the mix, and solving real customer issues. Since it is a start-up, you have a lot of different opportunities – like I was helping with some ideas and thoughts on Technical Marketing yesterday. So really a lot of fun. You will learn more as time goes on, and that I promise!
Update: I just read a comparison between Microsoft and VMware that a Microsoft person did. It was poorly done. I will try and avoid comparing my product with others in the industry since the majority of them have value, and solve customer issues. But, if I need to compare, I promise to be honest, and ethical, and realistic. I expect to see a lot of FUD come out this year about our product. I expect much of it to be dishonest, and some of it to be almost true, and I will work hard to not play that game. I promise.
