10. VMware’s Goes On Acquisition Tear In 2019

From machine learning and artificial intelligence to cybersecurity and software-defined networking, VMware is slated to make a total of nine acquisitions this year, making 2019 one of the company’s busiest years in history in terms of M&A.

VMware spent billions on acquisitions that include Aetherpal to boost VMware’s Workspace ONE; application and AI-focused BitFusion and Uhana; application security startup Intrinsic; and application deployment specialist Bitnami. Arguably its two biggest acquisitions of the year, Carbon Black and Pivotal Software – which will be discussed later on this list – will help drive sales and innovation for years to come.

Another pair of important acquisitions on the networking front include Veriflow, which applies continuous verification to networks to prevent outages and vulnerabilities, and multi-cloud application delivery startup Avi Networks. Founded in 2012 by former Cisco executives, Avi Networks is deployed in hundreds of global enterprises and aims to bring public cloud experience to the data center by creating what the company dubs as the “industry’s only complete software-defined networking stack” built for the modern multi-cloud era.

This slew of acquisitions had set the stage to drive deep integration and high-level innovation across VMware in 2020.
