Welcome to the 2021 Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC)
Userlevel 7
Badge +34

I am delighted to share our growing list of Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC) for 2021. This group of IT professionals are from every cloud, application and technology group. Their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and expertise help their organizations and the virtualization community to challenge the status quo.

This has been a challenging year with COVID, families coping with distance learning and the changing dynamics of working from home. But these NTCs continued in the face of unprecedented uncertainty, delivering the applications and services their companies, clients and friends needed.

In addition, they continued to mentor and encourage others showcasing what being part of a community is all about.

I'm looking forward to another exciting year and learning from many of you. Take the time to get to know one another and congratulate each other on social media, use the hashtag #NutanixNTC and keep the conversation going.

One more thing - What can I do if I did not make the list this year? Don't worry things don't end here. Connect with me on the community site @aluciani  and let's work together in getting you positioned for 2022.

Here are your 2021 Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC).
