and Interoperability as a
As cloud continues its evolution from a place to an operating model, we are beginning to see the decoupling of cloud services from cloud data centers, offering organizations the flexibility to physically run nearly anywhere. In addition, we are increasingly faced with an endless number of possibilities in how IT organizations and lines of business use technologies to innovate and differentiate.
Today’s innovative business solutions require a combination of SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, containers, and many more emergent services to interoperate securely and harmoniously. Beyond the cloud, most of our collective technology footprint extends to on-premise data centers, branch offices, edge sites, and is accessed through a myriad of devices. Making the most of an increasingly complex technology landscape is hard work, and it’s the kind of work that VMware’s R&D teams have focused on for more than two decades. Attend this webinar to gain insight on how VMware is innovating to solve your most pressing flexibility and interoperability challenges, including:
- Building applications that are an aggregate of best-of-breed cloud services and open source projects
- Improving velocity of cloud service and open source project consumption
- Cost management
- Security and compliance
- Core operations and governance
