VMware End-User Computing 2014 Recap and 2015 Predictions

Pace of InnovationBy Sanjay Poonen, EVP and GM, End-User Computing, VMware

Looking back on my first full year leading the End-User Computer (EUC) team at VMware, I can’t help but echo Pat Gelsinger’s comments at VMworld: what a difference a year makes!

Since joining the team in August 2013, we have been working to fulfill our vision of delivering a virtual workspace to allow end-users to work at the speed of life. 2014 has proven to be a momentous year as we have shown the world our leap into leadership positions across desktop, mobile and content collaboration. As we jumpstart 2015, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the amazing accomplishments of 2014 and share some predictions on how I see VMware continuing to grow, excel and be the best for our customers in 2015. None of this would be possible without an incredible End-User Computing TEAM here at VMware that I am honored and grateful to lead.

VMware End-User Computing Continues Momentum

Sanjay PoonenBy Sanjay Poonen, EVP and GM, End-User Computing, VMware

Here we are VMworld Europe 2014. If you’re in Barcelona for the show as I am, you know what I mean when I say this city is amazing. The people, the energy and the rich culture – it’s everywhere you look and everywhere you go!

But if you step inside the VMworld conference, you’ll see that we have a lot of the same energy as well. People are excited about our products because VMware is a disruptive company with innovative solutions and you can feel the infectious energy from our loyal customers at the show.

As I said during the keynote session today, the world we live in is shifting from a client-server world to a mobile-cloud era, where there is more software today in a modern car than there was in early 1970’s space crafts. This transition to the mobile cloud era will leave many legacy vendors in the cemetery of IT, while creating huge opportunity for a whole new generation of innovators in the next decade.
