The site virtual-men is a personal Blog, which was created and is maintained by me, Mike Gruner. How was the name found and was the idea of the Blog?
Simple, I´m working since a couple of years in the areas of virtualization, Digital Workspace, Identity and Access Management, Microsoft technologies, Architecture Design, and Infrastructure. So the idea came up to create a Blog in which I can write about the experience I got. Maybe this can help someone other in Projects or simple for learning.
In addition you will find some articles around the technology market in general, strategy or off-topic articles.
Who is that guy?
A little introduction about myself from an business perspective.
I´m currently working at VMware in the Customer Success team. I´m a proven experienced technical expert regarding Digital Workspace and VDI with all corresponding topics like Identity / Access Management, applications and Profiles with deep background from consulting. In addition to that, I handle Cloud topics as well.
I´ve seen a lot of customer and project situations and I´m passioned about technology, strategy and sales. Driven by a let´s do mentality and passioned to bring the best out of the possible or potential impossible 🙂
I have a lot of Project experience in a broad range of technologies and Verticals.
Other areas where I working in is coaching, mentoring, workshops, presentation and onboarding but planning of strategies and processes as well.
