VMware corporate story
A digital foundation built on VMware enables organizations to respond to new opportunities and threats, and to deliver any app, on any device, on any cloud. It lets customers experiment with new apps, new experiences, and new business models to create value. VMware customers take advantage of holistic solutions—the kinds of end-to-end solutions that complex digital businesses require—so that IT can support the people, processes, apps, and data that power the business.
VMware helps customers build their digital foundations to serve them in this unpredictable world. VMworld will introduce a range of offerings to help customers survive and thrive in the most turbulent market in generations. The VMware technology strategy is more relevant than ever as they provide the software to build, run, manage, connect, and protect any app across any cloud, and on any device.
Building upon two decades of delivering digital infrastructure for customers, VMware is now more than infrastructure—shaping the future of digital is now its #1 priority. In 2019, it expanded capabilities in application development + application modernization with the addition of Pivotal and expanded the security portfolio with the addition of Carbon Black. In 2020, the focus is on innovating and executing across every layer across five key franchise platforms and leading in key areas that are critical to customers’ success.
The theme for the first ever virtual VMworld is Possible Together. As the world has managed the COVID-19 global pandemic, adaptability has never been more important. The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation for millions of organizations worldwide. Many companies risk being able to adjust to new requirements, let alone capitalize on new market opportunities, because they still have so much work ahead to simply stabilize their businesses, move towards being future ready and enable their distributed workforces.
