AMD, Cisco, Dell, Intel, VMware CEOs On Toughest 2023 Challenges
Here’s what CEOs Chuck Robbins, Lisa Su, Pat Gelsinger, Raghu Raghuram and Michael Dell say about their toughest customer challenges in 2023 and their strategy to help.
CEO: Raghu Raghuram
VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram said the biggest challenge in 2023 is helping customers become digital businesses and optimize spending during a “constrained environment.”
“As the world returns to a more normal economic cycle … companies face the tough challenge of continuing their generational shift to become digital even while operating in a constrained environment and optimizing their spend,” said Raghuram. “Multi-cloud approaches are increasingly becoming the answer to achieving this balance.”
VMware’s CEO is focused on helping customer challenges around moving “the right applications to the right cloud,” as organizations change their approach from being “cloud-first to cloud-smart.”
To meet the challenge, VMware is investing in 2023 around creating a set of multi-cloud services that provides abstraction layers to simplify multi-cloud environments via VMware Cross-Cloud services.
“We will extend cloud management to deliver a multi-cloud operating model and provide financial transparency. We will continue to evolve our cloud and edge infrastructure so customers can run applications on any cloud or edge location, consistently,” said the VMware CEO. “We will advance our capabilities that provide connectivity and protection in ways tat don’t slow customers down.”
