All Tech Field Day Podcast

It’s The End of VMworld as We Know IT

To the IT community, the VMworld is an Ops conference like no other. But things are about to change. The in-person VMworld events stopped with the pandemic back in 2019. Now VMware is back with another conference, but it’s not quite the same as VMworld. A lot has changed in this time. VMware was acquired by Broadcom for one. And on the heels of that, VMworld became VMware Explore. Is it just post-merger rebranding, or is this the end of VMworld as we know it?

Recorded at VMware Explore 2022 US in San Francisco, this podcast explores the question that the entire IT community is scratching its head about. Brian Knudtson, Gina Rosenthal and Alastair Cooke join Stephen Foskett in this discussion that tries to define the ways in which VMworld has changed and what to expect from the future VMware Explore conferences.
