Congratulations to newly added and returning VMware EUC Champions.
By Cyndie Zikmund, product marketing group manager, End-User Computing, VMware
End-User Computing (EUC) Champions is an “Outsiders-who-are-Insiders” Expert Program designed with the help of several EUC experts in the community. Since its inception, this program has provided a great platform for the EUC expert community and VMware EUC product groups to share feedback, roadmaps and new product information through in-person meetings, networking events, industry conferences and webinars. This interaction helps ensure that VMware EUC customers get the best possible products and, additionally, helps shape the direction of VMware products and innovations.
This year, we want to congratulate our 24 champions who will be with us as part of the program in 2016. Thanks to all those who kicked off the program with us in 2015.
Not everyone is cut out to be a champion, and we are exceptionally lucky to be working with a very talented set of individuals. To be part of this program, members need to not only have deep VMware product expertise, but they also need to be vocal about their knowledge. Our experts are prolific writers and speakers. They are up to date on the latest trends in the industry, have opinions about them, and love to tinker with new technology. They are respected by their peers and are respectful of others. And they are the people that everyone in the industry likes to go to for technical information about leading EUC products.
Just the other day, I was asked, “What brought you to VMware?” I was shocked when I did not have an answer right away. Don’t get me wrong; there were lots of reasons going through my head, including the great culture, integrity of the people and cutting-edge technology, to name a few. However, the question had me thinking. What was the number one reason that brought me here?
Suddenly, the answer occurred to me: The number one reason I came to VMware was our customers and their stories. I knew that if I could find a company where customer success stories were positive and uplifting, the employees and the company would also be successful.
Fast forward as I sit here today on the other side. I am proud to say these reasons have held true. We succeed only when our customers succeed, and that is why it has been our mission to empower our customers to meet their toughest technology challenges. It gives me great reward to listen, collaborate and build with our retail customers and the teams that support them here at VMware.
In fact, this past month we hosted an executive dinner in Columbus, Ohio. A small group of retail IT decision makers had a peer-to-peer discussion on the technology, mobility and security trends within the industry. This was a great opportunity to come together on anything and everything retail, especially occurring on the heels of National Retail Federation’s annual conference.
Top Trends in Retail: IT Leaders Share their Priorities
During our dinner, we heard common themes around the need to transform legacy retail infrastructures into cloud-based infrastructures that support digital strategies. Retail CIOs and IT leaders are shifting to the digital workspace.
On the grand scale, retail technology leaders are looking to enable these five priorities:Continue reading →
It’s official: the Internet of Things (IoT) is beyond the hype phase. For about 43 percent of enterprises, IoT is now a strategic business initiative either already in place or in the works, according to a 2016 Gartner survey.
Just how are huge organizations using connected “things” and the resulting Big Data generated to solve their most complex business problems? Here are five examples of enterprise IoT projects. Continue reading →
VMware vForum is upon us once again! If you’re an IT professional who has yet to attend one of our free, one-day events, then head to Atlanta on March 8 for this unique opportunity to interface with experts, win prizes and stay up to date on cutting-edge IT for your business.
We’ll kick off the day with a special VMware Keynote by Shawn Rosemarin, America’s Chief of Staff, Systems Engineering and Field CTO. The rest of your day will be up to you. You’ll have the option of choosing to attend hands-on labs or breakout sessions in any of the following four tracks:
End-User Computing: Securely manage your applications, devices and desktops.
Hybrid Cloud: Increase efficiency while avoiding disaster with vCloud Air.
Compute/Management & Virtual SAN: Evolve your strategy with vSphere, vRealize and VMware HCS.
We are living in a time of network virtualization. It’s no longer uncommon for employees to expect to access their work from any device of their choosing, anywhere. This has opened the door to more opportunities, but also more challenges, for IT. Our End-User Computing breakout track will feature sessions on creating and maintaining a secure environment in the cloud while also managing multiple devices with VMware Horizon.
You will also have the opportunity to find out how to leverage the benefits of the latest releases of Horizon and Workspace ONE. During this event, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger and VMware’s EVP and GM of End-User Computing, Sanjay Poonen, will present VMware’s digital workspace vision and share exciting announcements about how VMware is shaping the workspace of the future.
Mobile World Congress 2016 was a record-setting year for the mobile industry’s premier event, with more than 100,000 in attendance. That growing interest and excitement surrounding mobility is fueling the next evolution in end-user computing (EUC), according to Sanjay Poonen, VMware’s general manager of EUC.
Sanjay sat down with VMware TV to discuss in detail what’s driving the future of the company and the EUC industry at large. Here are the highlights:
