Gelsinger On 2019

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger says a main priority for his company in 2019 is to work with customers to address the primary challenge they’re facing in what he calls “the multi-cloud era” -- running workloads that span sprawling environments.

“We’ve been saying over the past year that customers want to remove the complexity in their digital infrastructure, so that they can securely run, deliver and manage any app, to any device, on any cloud,” Gelsinger said.

Gelsinger said security remains a strong focus for VMware, echoing a point he made in October at The Channel Company’s Best of Breed conference where he said he wants “to disrupt everything about the security industry.”

“With every new or emerging threat, most customers react by buying more security products,” Gelsinger said. “But a security strategy that involves purchasing dozens or hundreds of products simply creates a patchwork security infrastructure, where cracks can offer more opportunities for attack.”

Here are Gelsigner's predictions for 2019 for both VMware and its channel partners.
