Executive Viewpoint: 2018 Prediction – Submission Information

It’s that time of year again! The time where we invite executives around the industry to share their predictions for the future!

The Executive Viewpoint: 2018 Prediction feature will run all through December & January (depending on the amount of submissions received). We want you to share your predictions on what you see happening in the Virtualization, Cloud, Data (big, storage, security, management), Software-Defined, Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Container, & Convergence industry in 2018.

How To Enter:

Each prediction must be written by a non-marketing, C-level executive (or highest ranking virtualization/cloud/data expert) and should be a minimum of 400 words. It must be company and product agnostic, and cannot be submitted or published anywhere else – including on the contributor’s website. Putting the first few sentences and a link to where it is on VSM is welcome and encouraged, however.

Predictions must be submitted to, with the subject line “2018 Prediction: <company name>.” With the article, you must submit author’s hi-resolution headshot & bio. You are welcome to include supporting graphics within the prediction piece, but they must be submitted as separate image files (if the images are embedded, they will still need to be included as separate image files).

Deadline for submission is Thursday, Nov. 30th. Deadline has been extended to Friday, Dec. 15th for those that need more time.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the all the great predictions posted throughout the event, beginning Friday, Dec. 1st, to see what the executives have to say!
