With over 60,000 employees and 4000+ field engineering resources, EMC is a very large ship with huge amounts of inertia and cultural history.  However, we have to adapt to the changing conditions in the market, and that means helping our sales force adapt.  In this session we’ll share lessons learned around helping 4000 opinionated and technical people to change their view of open source with Cloud Foundry as the focus, open collaboration with projects like OpenStack & Cloud Foundry, open standards and technical selling without resorting to anti open source FUD.  We’ll go into how we did it with contests, collaboration.
