Page 16 If you have not contributed to VIOPS, what has prevented you from doing so? (check all that apply) I don’t have any information to share with the community I have proven practices but my company won’t allow me to share them My proven practices are an important asset of my business and I don’t want to share them It’s too hard to create the content for the VIOPS site I don’t feel it is an important thing to do If other, please specify
Write-in reason for not contributing Didn't take the time to do so. feel like my content is "entry" level and not a viable option for experts Haven't gotten around to it yet (time) i didn't have the time for it, but maybe in the future I haven't had the time to formulate any Proven Practices :-) I just don't have the time right now... I just haven't had enough time, but I would love to share information. I'm looking for proven practices. Once I have the experience to write something that can not be easily challenged for its obvious omissions, I would be happy to contribute. I'm new to VMware. Once I develop a sufficient level of expertise I'll be looking for opportunities to contribute. I'm not a customer or consultant who can share information on best practice or what we did to provide a solution I'm too NEW to VMware to have anything to contribute!! :) :) Just haven't taken the time to contribute / Too Busy Just need to take the time to do it. My customer proven practices are not publicly available. No time to do so, yet. Not had time! Not much time to create content Relatively basic usage so far, gathering practices from others in order to learn the general workings and pitfalls of specific scenarios/implementations in order to later improve upon or adapt to newer technologies/applications. Swamped. Unfortunately, our company policy prohibits us from contributing in this manner.
Page 18 Are there any other things you would like to tell us about your experience with or expectations for the VI OPS Portal? (optional)
