Weekly Update – Week of 2/3/2020

New and Noteworthy:
Following some changes to our team we took a bit of a hiatus from the weekly update component of the site, so apologies for the lack of news over that time. Since we last posted an update, there have been some major changes at VMware, most notably the completion of the acquisition of Pivotal. This acquisition is key to our mission of solving business problems through software, as Pivotal’s software stack combined with our Tanzu portfolio allow us to help developers accelerate deployment of new applications in the hybrid cloud. You can read more about the Pivotal acquisition here.

Additionally, we acquired a company called Nyansa, a producer of a highly-regarded AI-based network analytics platform. Nyansa will be tightly integrated with our VeloCloud offering, and will enable better end-to-end monitoring of the SD-WAN platform as well as the Virtual Cloud Network, enabling us to offer a truly self-healing network. Read more about VMware’s acquisition of Nyansa here.

Finally, our Workspace One offering was chosen as the leader by IDC in three separate End User Computing (EUC) vendor assessments: Unified Endpoint Management, Mobility Management, and IOT/Ruggedized Device Management. This likely isn’t a surprise to anyone who has used the software, as Workspace One is one of the most transformational platforms that I have ever been exposed to. It completely changed the way that I work (for the better) upon joining VMware, and really completes our mission of allowing users to securely access any application, running on any cloud, from any device, whenever they want it. Read more about our wins from IDC here.

Weekly Update – Week of 8/19/2019

VMware announces intent to buy Pivotal, Intrinsic, Veriflow

It’s been a busy week here on the acquisition front. The biggest splash has been the intent to acquire a company that was incubated here, in Pivotal. Adding CloudFoundry and the excellent team working for Pivotal will be a huge win for VMware. Additionally, we have announced the acquisition of Veriflow, an advanced network monitoring platform, and Intrinsic, which is a serverless computing startup. There is likely more to come on the acquisitions and where they fit into our portfolio next week at VMworld.
