RoundTower announced today that a Master Cloud Architect has successfully completed the requirements of VMware’s Advanced Architecture program. Rene van den Bedem, RoundTower Master Architect and Strategist, graduated from VMware’s elite program in Palo Alto, CA on June 20th. The ten-day program consisted of 16 VMware employees and 4 partners, one of them being Rene.
The accomplishment allows RoundTower to align their Delivery Architecture framework with that of VMware’s Professional Services Organization. This better enables RoundTower to ensure their clients’ desired business outcomes are architected to VMware’s standards of consulting, communication, and technical design.
The Advanced Architecture Course is only offered to select senior consultants and architects from the partner & VMware community. VMware describes the course as a multi-solution workshop that focuses on their outcome-focused approach. The Advanced Learning certification increases RoundTower’s knowledge of VMware current strategy and provides a better understanding of the methodologies VMware uses.
In order to provide the most value to our clients, RoundTower has to be the best at what we do. Partnering with our top OEMs like VMware, who have industry-leading technology, ensures we have a solid grasp on advanced architectures and best practices. As a partner, it no longer suffices to have a working knowledge of a technology. That is why RoundTower and Master Architects like Rene consistently continue to learn and master their knowledge.
Bedem was presented with two awards at the conclusion of the course. He received first place for Best Individual Performance, which took into account his pre-work foundational knowledge, daily knowledge check scores, labs, and overall class participation. His team also received first place for Best Final Team Presentation, based on Solutions Design.
RoundTower is a VMware Platinum partner and was recently named Partner of the Year on both a Global & National scale. They currently hold all 13 of VMware’s solution competencies and four VMware Master Service competencies.
