I had the opportunity to attend VMworld in Las Vegas the last couple of days. Here’s a summary of what I have learned. In the Day 1 keynote, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger used “Digital Transformation” as the #1 buzzword. He also said that all business is digital business today and 80% of compute is virtualized by now. But 50% of all enterprise applications are still traditional client/server applications – in other words, there is still a majority of conventional Windows applications out there. Neither mobile apps nor native web apps are dominating, yet. According to a VMware survey, there is an average of 188 internally created (Windows) applications in enterprises which may need to be maintained for quite a while. This means that remoting into Windows applications hosted in on-premises datacenters, private clouds and public clouds will continue to be an important aspect of VMware’s strategy. This is great news for End-User Computing (EUC). I still wonder if this also applies to Pat’s announcement to extend their hybrid cloud approach not only to VMware-based clouds (now including IBM/Softlayer), but also to non-VMware-based clouds like Amazon, Azure and Google.

The Day 2 keynote started with some interesting EUC content, following up on what was briefly mentioned during the Day 1 keynote. I must say that I’ve never heard VMware use the word “Windows” so many times before, looks like they wanted to show some Microsoft love. In a WorkSpace One demo Sanjay Poonen, the general manager for VMware’s EUC business unit, showed the unified management of Windows 10. The demo included conditional access and blocking cutting and paste – which technically uses a new built-in Windows 10 Anniversary Edition feature called “Windows Information Protection”.
