VMware will be making changes to Partner Development Fund (DF) guidelines. To meet internal VMware financial compliance requirements, passes for VMware hosted events, such as EMPOWER, will NO longer be eligible for DF reimbursement. VMware is working together with our partners as we co-invest in the development of VMware Partner sales and technical talent and will offer a variety of discounts and other incentive offers to support our Partners’ business commitment to VMware.
