VMworld 2020 is just around the corner — September 29 to October 1. For the first time, VMworld will be all virtual and free for everyone to attend. While I will certainly miss the in-person connections, and the spontaneous conversations with customers and partners, I am thrilled VMworld will be more accessible to our community.
2020 marks my second VMworld as VMware’s CTO, and I have the privilege to deliver my perspective on Innovation@VMware to the conference attendees. In my Solutions Keynote [OCTO2966], I will share how the Office of the CTO is creating the future of disruptive technologies for VMware and enabling a culture of perpetual innovation across the VMware ecosystem. In addition to hearing about our inspiring innovations, you will also get to see some of these technologies via a series of lightening demos given by my colleagues in the Office of the CTO. After each of my keynotes (in three time zones), tune in to the Live Q&A session with my leadership team, where we will have an interactive discussion to answer your top of mind questions.
Vision & Innovation Track – a glimpse of the future
The Office of the CTO is leading the Vision & Innovation Track, and we have been busy preparing the 45 live sessions and 66 on-demand sessions. In this track you will get a glimpse of the future — showcasing emerging technology demos, and co-innovation projects from the Office of the CTO in collaboration with VMware partners and customers, that support your digital transformation strategies.
The Vision & Innovation Track includes three sub-tracks:
- Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence & High Performance Computing. Learn how to support ML within your organization and how VMware is using ML to create more automated, intelligent IT infrastructure.
- Office of the CTO. Explore the latest developments in multi-cloud, modern applications, virtual networks, crypto-agility, machine learning, enterprise-grade scalable blockchain, tech for good, and more.
- Professional Development. This is a new track at VMworld where you can develop your leadership, communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. You can also learn why diversity and inclusion is important for all innovative organizations and teams.
I encourage you to attend the broad set of technical sessions and stop by the Demo Zone to see the technologies in-action. Keep checking back here at the Office of the CTO blog for more in-depth updates on the VMware innovations at VMworld, and connect with us via Twitter @vmwocto.
I hope to connect with many of you at VMworld 2020 or beforehand via Twitter @GregL_VMware.
