VMware IT partners with all parts of the business, including R&D to deploy VMware products in our environments and with Sales to share our product deployment journey with Customers. We’ve had a major impact on improving collaboration throughout the company and introducing infrastructure programs to complement app modernization. I am proud to be part a team focused on innovation, efficiency, agility, and resiliency, as well as part of a company whose philosophy is people and process first, followed by technology.

VMware IT just completed moving its most critical production workloads to an entirely different physical data center, with a mere four hours of downtime. We will showcase this fascinating story of data center lifecycle including challenges and lessons learned. We will share the critical roles that planning and prioritization play, and our key strategies on moving the related infrastructure and services along with the workload. We will also review how we prepared our network to facilitate this migration, and how we leveraged a minimum of downtime to unravel the complexity.

As the leader of the global Audio-Visual team at VMware, I try to infuse my team members with the same passion, energy, and enthusiasm I have for developing meaningful and progressive technology solutions that support our global meeting and event experiences. These efforts ultimately break down barriers created by physical distance, cultural communication, diversity, and personal limitations. And I love connecting people with the technology that enables a more productive experience.
As a database architect at VMware, I take a straightforward approach to challenges. I’m endlessly curious about the root cause of any problem—from disaster recovery to designing highly available architecture—and how IT can solve it in the simplest, most efficient way. I care about this because enterprises tend to overcomplicate solutions rather than look at the big picture of how customers actually use the technology. This can lead to delivering quick fixes instead of long-term answers and prevention.
The key components to managing technology change are delivering quality IT processes at speed, eliminating redundant/time-consuming tasks, reducing overhead and doing it all securely. That’s a big part of my job as Senior Manager, IT Applications. But another significant part is helping DevOps become an organizational/cultural change agent. And that’s what makes what I do so exciting—I get to both create change solutions and shepherd them to make employees/external customers as efficient and productive as possible.
On paper, I use machine learning and micro-services to ensure internal/external end users are their most productive. But I’ve discovered that what truly drives innovation, better solutions and better products is a passion and curiosity for the work. I actually love coming to work (!) as a Member of Technical Staff, Emerging Technologies, knowing I can think out of the box to make things simpler, easier, and even more fun so people enjoy the technology instead of resenting it.
VMware’s success would not be possible without our employees, from entry-level roles on up. Our unwavering focus on innovation with a collaborative mindset is what makes VMware IT so successful. That, plus the fact that we offer competitive benefits, a generous time-off policy, a beautiful park-like campus, and a program that allows colleagues to participate in community service activities of their choosing, make VMware IT a unique blend of people passionate about their work and their community. In fact, in Computerworld’s “The 100 Best Places to Work in IT 2019 we ranked 4th in the benefits category and 12th in the large organization category. We were also recognized for diversity and inclusion, being named to the Forbes “Best Employers for Diversity 2019” list.
