VMworld 2017 – First General Day Review
Today VMworld 2017 well and truly kicked off with over 11,000 attendees joining VMware in Barcelona for the General Keynote session.
This presentation was kicked off by an incredible demonstration of Virtual Reality being used to create a work of art live on stage. After the dramatic opening, Pat Gelsinger CEO of VMware took to the stage to present. The presentation was all focused around the VMware vision and which technologies are helping VMware achieve their vision of any application, any cloud and on any device. Pat discussed how vSphere 6.5 is always central to their business and vision, however new technologies such as NSX and AppDefense are now at the core of everything VMware is doing and security is now the ‘secret sauce’ for VMware. Pat discussed the need to stop ‘fighting bad now and actually start ensuring good’, and with technologies such as AppDefense can easily help businesses do this.

We also joined the EUC showcase session hosted by Sumit Dhawan and Shawn Bass who discussed the VMware solutions around EUC in particular Workspace ONE. They were joined on stage by colleagues to demo the seamless technology to demonstrate the ease of use for end users but also keeping the data secure from a management perspective.
