9. VMware Combats COVID-19; Gelsinger Predicts It As ‘Black Swan’ Event

When the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns first hit America in early March, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger boldly predicted on March 17 that the coronavirus pandemic would be the “black swan” event that changes the way the world works, connects and live.

“The future of work is changing. As the work-from-home model becomes the norm and work itself becomes more distributed, we will continue to build infrastructure and technology solutions optimized for the workplace of the future,” said Gelsinger in a blog post on March 17. “This is a ‘black swan’ event that I believe will permanently change the way we work, learn, connect, worship and simple how we live in community with each other.”

To help customers affected by the coronavirus, VMware began offering free trials of Workspace ONE and its new SD-WAN Work @Home offering, while also extending free trials of Horizon.

VMware also implemented several cost management changes due to the economic uncertainly which included a company-wide employee salary freeze and temporary salary reductions for top executives, including Gelsinger.
