VMware's 2020 Vision 

Responsible Business, Resilient Future


At VMware, our worldview is that we are interconnected and interdependent on each other and the planet.  

With each innovation our business has brought to market, we have seen how even a single step forward can create a ripple effect that transforms an entire industry. We can and should apply this thinking to the challenges that our world faces today: a global pandemic, social injustice, financial instability and climate change.

We are all invariably connected. We can all decide to be part of the problem or be part of the solution. This moment is an opportunity to create systemic and scalable change.  That’s why we choose to be a force for good—with each action and across all our collective decisions. That’s how resilience is built, and today we need it more than ever.

Letters from Our Executive Team 


From Pat Gelsinger, who served as CEO from September 2012 to February 2021

We will look back on 2020 as a watershed moment; the year everything changed. It would have been impossible to comprehend the speed and scale of the multiple challenges before us today. From the global pandemic, continued systemic inequities, geopolitical uncertainty and cybersecurity, to the march of climate change with extreme weather events impacting our own employees and immediate communities, these tumultuous events have shown how deeply interconnected we are as humans.

Issue Responses

In the wake of a global pandemic, we’ve had to face just how interconnected we truly are: as a species, a society, and a global economy. We will be forever changed by this collective experience, and from it we will emerge with different perspectives on how we work, learn, care for each other and sustain community.
