Wow what a privileged honor to be a part of this list. This year will be filled with many new challenges as EMC will have a flurry of changes internal to help the customer make their goals a success! I refer to the Dell + EMC adventure. I look forward to helping my customers and fellow IT professionals in 2016. Don’t forget that is just the business side. The never stopping change of technology is still in full force! The information to be consumed is non-stop, and the challenges for the customer to take advantage of this is incredible.  I know I am excited for 2016. Sharing the information and empower each other!

EMC Elect 2016 — Official list

FACT:

EMC Elect Summary

  • 2015 – 102 members chosen out of 450 nominations
  • 2016 – 71 members chosen out of 700 nominations

In 2015 – There were 450 nominations leading to 200 finalists, the 102 official directory of its members for 2015
In 2016 – There were 700 nominations, leading to 150 finalists. Of those finalists, under the toughest selection process for the EMC Elect here are the 71 members for 2016

In my opinion it seems that for 2016.. the selection process was roughly 10% of the nominated persons were chosen. There was an increase in nominations, but a decrease in the number of selected. I can only imagine how much a difficult task this was. Thanks for all the hard work Mr. Mark Brown @DathBrun

Here are some interesting facts by the numbers:

I didn’t have a chance to calculate repeat EMC Elect members from former years. Metrics tell all sort of stories, but more over. Take a look at the content provided by the EMC Elect. There is A LOT!

Follow an EMC Elect member become informed and part of the discussion. Search for the tag #EMCElect.  Read the blogs (like this one) read up on the ECN (EMC Community Network). If you have a question reach out to a member via twitter or post on ECN. You will find very helpful individuals; who generally are very open to objective discussion on the technical merits of X, Y or Z!

Congrats to ALL the EMC ELECT 2016! And to all past EMC Elect… A famous quote to consider.
