It finally happened, after weeks of preparation and intese work by all at the Microsoft Pakistan team,  Finally had the Pakistani HEROS happen {here} launch in Karachi yesterday 17th March 2007 at Karachi Shereaton Hotel. This was no doubt a very successfull launch with overwelming response from all quaters of IT – Microsoft pakistan did managed to have a huge gathering of some high profile Pakistani CIO’s, top class IT professionals and tech savy enthusiasts.

The procedings started off with the executive keynote by Country Manager Microsoft Pakistan Mr. Kamal Ahmed followed by Sherif Seddik our Regional Director Microsoft NEPA and then by Zane Adam, Sr. Director Microsoft Virtulization team. Followed by breakout sessions from myself, Eddi Hanif and my MEA and PK colleagues. Overall I had a lot of fun esp hearing the presention about Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V some of the promise it holds with 5C’s (Consumerization, Cost, Carbon Neutral, Compliance & Contingency) and High Avaliablity. I observed a lot of intreast around SCVMM and SCVMM V-next, and how the service provisioning can really benefit the orginization.

 Great fun all n’ all. … Keep tuned!
