Diversity in technical support is not just about fulfilling a social responsibility; it’s a strategic advantage that leads to better problem-solving, enhanced customer service, a stronger team, and a more attractive company.

Rainer thanked Abhinav and the Nutanix team for hosting the event at their excellent location in Bangalore. He also thanked Dipu Das (VP Worldwide Support, Nutanix) for his keynote speech about trends in technical support. Special appreciation was extended to Sankalp Saxena (SVP, MD Nutanix) and Shanuj Sherief (Sr. Manager WW Support, Nutanix) for sharing their experiences on diversity.
