VMworld Session - Possible Begins with You


VMworld 2018 has a great lineup of Edge and IoT sessions with experts from VMware, Dell, Siza, Axis Communications and more! Sessions will be taking place all week and will also be available on-demand after VMworld. Check out our VMworld Europe 2018 post to get a full overview of everything Edge and IoT at VMworld.


Make Friends with Your OT Department: The Prerequisite to IoT Success [IOT3549QE]

Mon., 05 November, 15:00 – 15:30 | Hall 8.0, Room 26

According to Gartner, through 2018, 75 percent of IoT projects will take up to twice as long as planned. The reasons for this are many but the most significant one is the dilemma of managing IoT in the enterprise context. With the advent of IoT, traditionally OT assets which now enjoy internet connectivity are slowly falling under the purview of IT for management. As these worlds collide and roles blur, it is becoming harder to implement IoT as architecture, standards and security protocols differ for IT and OT. Learn why this convergence is important and best practices from customer examples on how best to align these departments to fuel your IoT success.

Can Blockchain Be Used as a Tool to Secure the IoT? [IOT1746QE]

Mon., 05 November, 16:00 – 16:30 | Hall 8.0, Room 28

IT will need to build infrastructure to manage IoT devices and control who has access to the data generated. This session will look at how blockchain technology drives significant transformational needs associated with the overall business and IT operating model. Find out how the decentralized nature of blockchain may allow IT to better manage and secure the host of connected and IoT devices on the market. You will learn about internal obstacles to blockchain adoption, such as:

  • The difficulty in communicating the value of blockchain
  • Legal and compliance considerations (what’s new/what’s needed)
  • Data security (what data is now unintentionally available to who)
  • Gaining buy-in from organizational leaders and internal divisions
  • Talent and expertise needs and considerations
  • Culture and change management impact and effort

Take Your Hybrid Cloud Strategy to the Edge with VMware Solutions [IOT3541BE]

Wed., 07 November, 15:30 – 16:30 | Hall 8.0, Room 34

Gartner predicts 75% of data will be generated at the edge by 2021 because of things generating valuable data that will be leveraged to optimize your business. Is your company ready for this shift? As most organizations are focused on shifting to the cloud, are you considering the compute capacity that will be needed in the field, at the edges of your business where the data is being collected? Real-time needs, storage costs, and security are driving the need to have a more distributed architecture vs. cloud or data center only. Be the first to learn VMware’s edge computing strategy and how you can leverage your existing investment while leveraging VMware’s leading software defined data center, VMC, VeloCloud and Pulse IoT Center capabilities to help you have one infrastructure strategy from cloud to edge.
