Keynote VMware
Accelerating Digital Business in a Multi-Cloud World
Joe Baguley, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, EMEA, VMware

Multi-cloud is now the dominant enterprise architecture. But how do you build the best applications, using the finest that cloud technologies provide, all primed and ready for today & tomorrow – but without making decisions you will regret? The root problem: every cloud exists in a silo, with its own stack for operations, management and security. This makes it difficult to build, deploy, run, manage and secure apps and cloud infrastructure consistently across clouds, yet no one cloud will do everything you need. In this session, we’ll look at how VMware Cross-Cloud services breaks down the walls between clouds to enable a consistent operating model across all of your clouds. We’ll also explore how Cross-Cloud services support three strategic IT initiatives in the areas of building and operating cloud native platforms, accelerating cloud transformations, and securing the hybrid workforce. We’ll also touch on the future for our industry as applications and data become more connected, more distributed and more powerful than ever.

10:15 - 10:45
Keynote Intel
Enhancing Europe’s Digital Future
Stefanie Schütze, Sales Director VMware EMEA, Intel Sales and Marketing Group

Abstract: Today’s digital transformation is driving rapid and fundamental changes in businesses and their operating models. To support this, IT must similarly transform their data centers. VMware and Intel enable IT organizations to modernize data centers and deliver IT infrastructure and application services with the speed and agility to support business innovation and growth while optimizing TCO and improving resource utilization. VMware’s software-defined HCI architecture and Intel® technology integrate compute, network, and storage virtualization technologies and enable businesses to modernize their infrastructure, automate IT, and run modern applications. This innovative, software-defined approach delivers cloud service provider agility and economics in the data center, and extends to an elastic hybrid cloud environment.
