VMware: Creating a Common Platform for Innovation
Cloud is a key component of digital transformation, which is both disrupting and bringing new benefits to enterprises today. “Every business is looking at the technology it needs and uses and how it can use that technology to disrupt current business models,” says VMware Vice President for Cloud Marketing, Nick King. It is a conversation that inevitably centers on the lifeblood of every enterprise: its applications. And once the conversation begins, it ultimately turns to the data center.
Managing Applications and Priorities
Managing the present and future state of its applications is increasingly critical to any enterprise’s survival and success in the digital economy. Thus, organizations are examining their application portfolios and making key decisions about how to build, manage, and operate the current and future set of apps they will rely on to compete and thrive. Use of public cloud is part of the application strategy for most IT organizations.
Depending on its complexity, importance, and strategic value to the business, an application could be treated in a variety of ways. It could remain on-premises or be migrated to an external cloud; it could be rewritten (or refactored) for cloud; it could be developed specifically to take advantage of cloud architectures (cloud-native), or it could be pulled down from a public cloud as a Software as a Service (SaaS) application. For most organizations, these strategies are not exclusive but overlapping and consistent with the diverse goals of the business.
