VCE the Converged Platforms Division of EMC will be out in full force at the event to demonstrate how customers can modernize their data center through converged platforms and solutions, built on a solid foundation of VMware technologies, to reduce IT complexity and drive business value.The amazing success of the Converged Platforms and Solutions Division is based on our ability to constantly evolve our product and solutions portfolio in keeping with the needs of our customers. With every product, solution or platform announced we have accelerated our customers’ journey towards a simplified and faster IT environment, whilst also offering more choice than ever before to meet a diverse range of workloads, applications and use cases. Ahead of VMworld we will make two significant announcements regarding Enterprise Hybrid Cloud and Native Hybrid Cloud which will further simplify customers’ journey to cloud. Watch this space for more details.At the show itself we have an action packed agenda with the highlight being Chad Sakac’s breakout session – The Edge is Still Bleeding: A face-melting technical smorgasbord of all things Converged, Hyper-Converged, Cloud Native and Software Defined, on Tuesday, August 30 from 1-2 p.m.Another not to be missed and popular session will be the Ask the Experts panel discussion – Titans of Tech, on Wednesday, August 31 from 11:30 – 12:30.
