What Customers Tell Us
You may be asking, why should I consider vRealize Operations Cloud, or even SaaS? You aren’t alone, as companies that are interested want to know more about vRealize Operations Cloud. So we’re sharing conversations we’ve had with several customers around the globe. They revealed why they are excited about the AI/ML engine that powers self-driving operations as a SaaS model to manage their hybrid cloud environments.

- Digital transformation
This firm conducts business throughout the world and has the highest focus of providing quality services to their customers, who trust them to solve difficult problems. The customers can be demanding, and the firm wants to increase their responsiveness, which will also excel their competitive edge. They need a SaaS environment that will provide more flexibility, infinite capacity, and more agility so they can respond even faster to the needs of the customers.
Organization 2: Small insurance company
- Focusing on other IT priorities

Organization 3: Large healthcare technology provider

As a healthcare technology company, they are already well on their way to a hybrid cloud journey. Although this organization would like to shift the maintenance and upgrade responsibilities of their on-premises product to a provider so they have an integrated cloud service solution.
Organization 4: Pharmaceutical company

This company would like to contribute to new business through healthcare digitization. They would like to accelerate innovation in research and development with better agility and flexibility.

A SaaS version of operations management will help federate across several different environments to easily onboard and manage multiple datacenters from a single point.
