VMware on Veeams willingness and responsiveness to change may be their biggest asset
Let’s set the stage for this article, shall we?
At VMworld 2017 this year I had the chance to attend Veeams’ Press Breakfast. Now, I’ve been to press events before and very seldom have I ever wrote an article about them – I mean, they aren’t a technical deep dive into any technology – sometimes there is embargo pre-release information given out, but really the goal is to lay out your companies broader vision and scope for the press and analysts in attendance.
So why an article this time?
It’s not because the eggs were delicious or the coffee was strong – also, it’s not due to any peeks into the future or pre-release information as there was none handed out. Honestly – the very first slide of co-CEO Peter McKay’s presentation is what stood out for me. That slide contained the exact same image as shown below.
The gist – it’s not the strongest that survives, nor the smartest – but the one that can best adapt to change around them. This got the wheels in my head turning a bit – how could this quote, a quote written by a man over 200 years ago – how could this possibly apply to a tech company in today’s world? Which kind of led to me to a final thought…
How has Veeam changed over the years?
