The Rolling O Newsletter – GalaxZ 16 Edition

Last month, customers, partners and technology leaders flocked to GalaxZ 16 here in the Live Monitoring Capital of the World. As we talked with attendees throughout the week, we were able to learn how the best companies in the world are innovating around IT monitoring. The results were astounding. Zenoss customers are changing the world!

Thank you for making GalaxZ 16 amazing. We couldn’t have done this without you. We are simply better together. In case you missed it, you can watch my keynote from the event here.

We hope to see you all at GalaxZ 17!

-Greg Stock, CEO, Zenoss


A Recap from GalaxZ 16

Amazing Keynotes from ServiceNow and Rackspace:
Chris Pope, Office of the CSO at ServiceNow, spoke on the shift of how business is done – customer engagement, speed of delivery, innovation, and the reliability of their operations – and what these changes and demands mean for the modern IT organization.

Brian Kelly, Chief Security Officer at Rackspace, presented on how security is one of the main drivers for the move to the cloud and how to simplify and streamline your security by trusting in its power.

Customers for Life
Our customers shared powerful testaments to how they are innovating within their IT organizations. We heard from companies such as Datalink, General Electric, Rackspace, University of Maryland University College, NetApp and many others. Presentation slides are available on our SlideShare channel.

Our Senior VP of Customer Success, Brian Wilson, set the stage for where Zenoss fits into the enterprise IT ecosystem during his keynote.

Oh, and we had some fun, too…

Welcome Reception: On night one, we hit the poolside terrace at the JW Marriott for our welcome reception, featuring music from Emily Wolfe, craft cocktails and food that knocked our socks off.

Official GalaxZ 16 Party: The official GalaxZ 16 party went down at Trinity Hall. Don’t ask us how we did it, but there was a taco truck inside the building, country music blasting, and more cocktails and local beers served up.
