The way enterprises secure their networks is changing. As new cyber breaches and attacks make headlines on an almost daily basis, enterprises know they need to change the way they approach connecting and securing their business-critical systems and applications. This new take on security means IT professionals need to have a deep understanding of how the threats they face can impact their employers’ business performance. To help you feel more prepared for the future of network and security virtualization, we’ve developed a content track at VMworld Europe focused purely on this topic that takes a look at secure application infrastructure, cloud networking and edge computing.
Digitization, changing employee demographics and ever-increasing expectations are all having a major impact on enterprises and their plans for growth. To thrive in this new paradigm, employees must be empowered via access to the devices and apps they need to perform their jobs. These employees tend to deliver much higher levels of engagement and productivity as a result. However, agreeing to any device, any location, any app way of working, and delivering that in a way that doesn’t compromise security or compliance are two different things. That’s why we’ve developed a Digital Workspace track at VMworld Europe to cover all your requirements – from security and experience through to endpoint management and Windows delivery.
Cloud computing has been a term for so long that you might be forgiven for wondering what else there is to learn about it. Yet the concept of cloud computing is constantly evolving—the current conversation has moved to how enterprises manage a hybrid of environments, covering private, public and on-premise services. The reason for this shift and the complex sprawl of multiple clouds is organizations’ drive to have the right infrastructures to underpin their digital transformation. What results is a mash of different clouds delivered by multiple vendors and requiring multiple skill sets and approaches. To help IT professionals make the most of their cloud environments, this year’s VMworld Europe features one of the most comprehensive cloud tracks we’ve ever offered. Get ready to explore the cloud like never before!
Maybe you’re new to Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), the software-defined technology that’s transforming the storage industry, or maybe you work at a company that’s been using VMware HCI for years. Either way, VMworld Europe will feature more than 30 HCI sessions this year, all tailored around different levels of familiarity. Be sure to come learn about the future of HCI, hybrid cloud powered by HCI, best practices for running next-generation workloads and much more.
