VMware IT: Learn from our Experience of Using VMware Products

At VMware, we use our own products and technology to solve our most critical challenges—the same ones faced daily by every IT organization. As part of our “VMware on VMware” initiative, we use the tools we believe unlock the potential of cloud computing: shifting IT processes, the Software-Defined Data Center, the hybrid cloud and business mobility. We share our experience and insights as we pursue fully realized unified hybrid cloud and business mobility initiatives based on One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device—VMware’s architecture for IT.

And, because we use the Customer One program—VMware's initiative to internally formalize its beta process and become a real-world customer—we are intimately familiar with the challenges you face in adopting, upgrading and implementing IT solutions. Customer One is the cornerstone of our commitment to not only enhance the customer experience, but also provide examples of how IT can transform the business.

As a result of making “cloud” our default architectural strategy, 80 percent of our IT programs support business growth. Daily, we have the metrics to support this model—we can provision servers in minutes with improved reliability, we’ve optimized our software development lifecycle (SDLC) process for speed and agility, and we have improved the customer experience and reduced costs by migrating our CRM applications to the cloud.

On the path to cloud, we have had some great successes, learned valuable lessons and emerged with information to share. Take a look at the case studies, videos and other information throughout this site. We hope that you find our experience valuable.
