VMware Lays Out Vision for App-Driven, Multi-Cloud World


VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger opened VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, this morning with a perspective on the impact of technology innovation on business and everyday lives. “Tech is leaving the nest of tech,” he said, “and is now woven into the fabric of our culture.”

Radical Transformation

Gelsinger opened his talk by observing that technologies from the world of science fiction are now part of everyday reality. For example, the exoskeleton Ellen Ripley used in the film Aliens once seemed fanciful. Yet, steelworkers in South Korea now strap on exoskeletons on a daily basis to gain capabilities that extend far beyond normal human capabilities.  

“Science fiction is becoming science fact,” Gelsinger stated to a rapt audience ready to kick off the annual conference. “And the most profound change of all is our frame of reference, our everyday expectations. Everywhere you look,” said Gelsinger, “tech innovation is reshaping our expectations as new tech-driven models transform every aspect of business.”

Apps Connecting People

Applications lie at the heart of this business innovation, according to Gelsinger, as apps reshape the customer experience and separate winners from losers in every industry sector. The core challenge for businesses is the ability to conquer complexity by innovating across a range of devices, applications, and clouds. This complexity increases risk and costs while compromising security.
