Listen to Episode Four of the new Digital Journeys podcast ‘Future Ready’ series. Thought provoking and entertaining, but above all, actionable insights brought to you by VMware and 3rd party industry voices.
In the first three episodes of the ‘Digital Journeys – Future Ready’ series, we focussed on how organisations have responded to the global COVID-19 crisis, from initial business continuity and on through business resiliency, culminating in a look at the Accelerate phase, where organisations are using the knowledge and processes established in the first two phases to accelerate their digital transformation, and pursuit of organisational goals.

In this episode, Garry and Rory are joined by Ed Hoppitt, Director, Solution Engineering – Application Platforms, VMware EMEA, to tell the story of the application.
