VMworld Europe 2008: Day One: Breakout Session: Lifecycle Manage Technical Deep Dive

I had some real issues with this session – firstly, the demos weren’t live – but offline. It’s pretty hard to see what LCM (aka Dunes VSO) can do for you – if there isn’t a VI3 infrastructure system to talk to. Secondly, where I think I understand what LCM is about – many people in the audience were still not sure. Now that doesn’t mean they should have attended an “overview” or “What this product does” session. But what was really needed was a problem posed, and a problem solved by this product. That is to see a workflow scenario – a real one – perhaps a customer case-study – and then how LCM was used to address this. Right now, in its current format it seems to me that LCM will remain a “PSO” style product not a shrink wrapped product that guys like me can just step in and use. Unless you heavily skilled up in JavaScript – so you can write and also link together those workflow object together – you not going to truly realise the power of this product.
