If you didn’t get the chance to attend the conference in person or have been one of the few to have been on holiday or under a rock then WOW – you’ve missed a lot of news. There have been a lot of posts from bloggers and media alike but I want to deep dive on the VMware business itself and how its turned around since 2015. » Read more
It’s been rather quiet lately in the world of tech but all of that is about to change next week when the US VMworld event kicks off and our Twitter timelines go crazy for a few days.
So can we really expect a ton of new products and features ?
Well – it’s a good question and we know that announcements have been few and far between but expect some more VMware on AWS updates. I also think that EUC is a prime revenue generator so we may see more with Workspace One and not forgetting NSX of course.
Traditionally there would be a lot of enhancements to core product lines and over the years this has been well received but now practitioners and managers alike are seeking more innovative and disruptive means to modernise and fuel their digital growth so I think VMware will be focusing in on how they stay relevant especially in the world of IoT and AI which has everyone talking right now.
Although I won’t be in Vegas this year, I will be in Barcelona for the European event so am very much looking forward to the european announcements. I will also be building more bridges and extending my network so if you’ve never met me before and you follow me on Twitter (@amitpanchal76) or follow my ramblings on tech here then please be sure to say hello. I am also recording a few podcasts this year in the VMvillage with the @OpenTechCast group which will be a welcome change and very much looking forward to this.
Final notes – pack light, don’t squeeze in all the sessions you can and above all wear comfortable footwear !!
Look forward to meeting you if our paths cross.
