CRN Exclusive: VMware Channel Chief On Major Partner Initiatives In 2017, Dell's OEM Partnership And Fixing vSphere Channel Rift
VMware Channel Chief On 2017 Road Map
VMware Channel Chief Ross Brown is leading the charge for several significant channel initiatives in 2017 with the goal of making it easier for partners to do business with the company and drive more recurring revenue.
"There's lots of work going on to get more solutions-oriented, to clean up the engagement with our customers and partners so they have a better experience, and to simplify the interactions of VMware tools for partners," said Ross Brown, senior vice president of worldwide partners and alliances at VMware, in an interview with CRN.
Brown also talks about the new NSX-T product, Hewlett Packard Enterprise's acquisition of SimpliVity, and how VMware is not "doing anything different with Dell than what we would do with any other OEM."
