The biggest VMware partner event of the year was a resounding success! To whet your appetite for next year, listen in as Thomas Tan, VP Global Integrated Marketing at VMware, provides a summary of the content that conquered the conference. As you will hear, Solution Keynotes were on point and provided partners with a window into the technologies and strategies that will help them win today and in the future.
First up was Deliver the Digital Workspace
The digital workspace has disrupted the traditional model for end-user computing. The rapid adoption of new modern applications, coupled with the proliferation of mobile devices, has led to new demands from users. In order to be productive whenever and wherever, users want the applications they need when they need them, on the devices they choose to carry. These evolving mobile work styles, ownership models and user expectations are creating a unique challenge for IT. Hear the Solution Keynote and find out how to Partner with VMware to deliver any app on any device with enterprise security and consumer simplicity.
Partners then attended the Solution Keynote Enabling Cloud for your Customers
In this session, partners discovered how to take your customers on the journey to the VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). They received a preview of the VMware Cloud Foundation launch announcement. The VMware Cloud Foundation is a new unified SDDC platform that combines vSphere, VSAN and NSX as a single, integrated software platform to provide a software-defined data center across clouds. This virtualized infrastructure layer can be further enhanced with the VMware automated cloud management platform, vRealize Suite, to help customers adopt VMware SDDC faster than ever before.
Last but certainly not least, partners attended the Accelerate Network Virtualization keynote.
VMware leaders discussed how network virtualization is hotter than ever and NSX is leading the charge. Since its launch in 2013, NSX has made leaps in the market by securing data centers with micro-segmentation, as well as reducing provisioning complexity through automation. Listen to the Solution Keynote to understand what network virtualization is, how it is transforming data centers around the world, and what it means for your business.
We Can’t Replay the Refreshments or the Networking

However, we can tell you that a plethora of discussions took place around topics such as Partner Programs, Cloud, Modern App Support, SDDC, NSX, Technical Alliance Program (TAP), Partner Professional Services (PPSP) and more. Listen in as Thomas Tan, VP Global Integrated Marketing provides, a FastChat recap of the exciting topics covered in the Partner Exchange Solution Keynotes.
