VMware: Software Is the Future of Networking


“Networking is undergoing a fundamental transformation,” said Bruce Davie, VMware’s vice president and CTO, APJ, kicking off a session at future:net 2017.

future:net, hosted by VMware, provides a forum for networking professionals from a variety of industries to come together to discuss issues central to the future of networking outside of a pitch or conference environment. future:net is designed to help network architects understand and seek solutions to common challenges involving clouds, containers, and virtualization.

Highlighting the Digital Journey
This year’s future:net, held in late August in Las Vegas, focused on the demands digital transformation makes on a new network strategy. The central thesis of the conference is that networking, both highly specialized and siloed, is in the midst of an enormous shift.

Today, everything of value is connected: applications, clouds, devices, and end users. The network has emerged as the critical piece that connects all these components reliably and securely. As businesses race forward to transform their IT environments to support this new, connected environment, it is incumbent upon the network to provide a seamless and secure experience for customers and employees alike.

“To see the future of networking, we need only look at one of the dominant trends in IT: the shift in power toward lines of business and developers,” said Davie. “With developers becoming increasingly important and empowered to choose their own tools, and lines of business adopting public cloud capabilities to become more agile, networking is no longer the sole province of the IT department.”
