For the second part of our five-part interview series with VMware CIO Tony Scott (check out Part One here), we delve into Tony’s view of the IT market in the near future.
Tribal Knowledge [TK]: Tony, how do you see the IT market evolve over the next 12-24 months?
Tony Scott [TS]: There has been a lot of change in IT over the course of my career. We are in the midst of another big change and it’s a time of pretty significant business transformation, where businesses are digitizing and their products and go-to-market strategies are changing. How customers learn about their company’s products and how they support those products is also undergoing a lot of change. For IT, it’s a question of how do all of the things they do to support their businesses have to change to keep up with and help drive the transformation. We are in the middle of going towards IT as a Service – aka “ITaaS” to gain the flexibility, agility and innovation needed to succeed.
